Pros: Surprisingly good sound! Clean, exciting, and fun but not overly colored, with a silent background
Cons: Build quality a bit suspect on my unit, not exactly the most handsome, could be cheaper
The Shonyun 301 - this amp was sent to me for review along with the 306 portable amp. Like most readers I had never heard of the brand Shonyun. The packaging looked professional though, and the person sending it gave it a high recommendation, so I figured I'd give it a try without bringing any pre-conceived ideas into it. This was hard to do based on the outward appearance of the unit, which didn't seem to fit the sound it produced. But I'm getting ahead of myself - allow me to start from the beginning.
