I'm thinking of maybe purchasing this amp. I have the possibility to audition it, which I will, but it's quite far way so I thought I'd get some opinions here before I decide whether to go for it. I'm specially interested in folks that listened to both this amp and lehmann black cube, naim headline + hicup, x-fidelity V8 - M1. Those are the amps I've listened to, so I can have a reference regarding sound.
From reading around the forums I understand that it's a good value/money amp, and that he's more transistor like in his sound then most tube amps. The shameful truth is that I didn't actually owned (or even listened) to any pure tube amps (not hybrid) before, not a lot of choice around of where I live. So maybe I'm interested in it just for the sake of experementing with tube sound, but if its sound is very transistor like then what's the point ... I don't know. I'd appreciate any help, especially from people who own/ed this amp. My headphones are HD800 and current amp is lehmann black cube linear.
Thanks in advance.
