I've posted this on another Head-Fi thread, but have decided to place it here as well.
My DV FIGARO arrived this morning from Jasmine. It's a Christmas present from "her indoors" so just had a quick look and listen. I also managed to secretly snap this pic while she wasn't looking.
As you'd expect from DV, the thing is built like a tank - weighing in at an impressive 4kg - and aesthetically very nice to look at. The only possible let down is a rather flimsy power switch.
But all this means nothing if the amp doesn't sound good. No fears, the FIGARO sounds great for the money (£75): very open and detailed, with a civilised treble and deep bass. There was a low level hum to begin with but that died away as the tubes bedded themselves in. It's unfair to compare the FIGARO with the 336 or 332, it's simply not in that class, but I can directly compare it with something like the REGA EAR (£100) which I owned a few years back, and it definately betters that in every respect.
As I said, only a quick listen but certainly an impressive entry level amp.
