The SA-31 is an awesome sounding amp(and that is coming from a" tube guy").  My favorite SS amp I own.(HUDA, HA-160, M-stage, O2, and Asgard 2 being the others)

Maybe we can make a small list which amps excel (own experiences ofcourse)

Let me start:

337 (ofcourse ..some of u will say...but its the amp making me doing this..arrrggg. biggrin.gif. ).. But with right tubes! Or 339...and its affordable..only pain in the ass is communicating with them and getting one from china to ur doorstep!!..certainly a risk to consider..but to me..worth it.

Soloist..although expensive! Nice built..tank like..very strong!

V200....not cheap also..made in good old of US of A ... Does very well with audezes as well!!! Just in case u wanna upgrade to a lcd 2 or 3 tongue.gif

Ef6.. Amp made for the he6.. But also does well with he500... EXPENSIVE..but future proof if u wanna upgrade to he6 later

Lyr..the one i would choose if icouldnt get the others..but also needs tuberolling!..good quality-price relation.

I heard other amps....but i cant say they do well with my 500..imho ofcourse..and am sure..a million more amps can do well..but didnt listen to them all..

So guys..who is next? Any speakerguy? Ur on the stand! Help us with suggestions. tongue.gif

Violectric devices are exclusively developed in Germany by the engineers of Lake People electronic GmbH. In doing so, the team of developers can draw on twenty years of experience and countless products for the pro-audio domain. 
Among others, the first German-made 20-bit A/D and D/A converters were developed by Lake People in the early nineties of the past century.

Both Lake People and Violectric are German-based. The two are the same company.

 

Lake People is marketed for pro audio market, while Violectric is aimed at the hifi market

I see you have a Soloist, a Lyr and a Mjolnir. How would you rank them?
For me, the Mjolnir is easily the best. It makes my 500 come to life in a way that the Soloist and Lyr does not do.

For me, it just sounds like the MJ is giving it more than it can handle (details/aggressiveness), but to each their own.
