My new amp, KOJO Technology - solid brass.
with my W4R
with my shure 846
SQ wise is absolutely FANTASTIC !!
Oh the sacrifices we make... pretty soon I'll have home components strapped to my back. You know, "portable."
Congrats for your new MASS KOJO amp?
When is your MASS KOBO coming?
Please share your opinion about the SQ from these two MASS amps
The TU-HP01 actually a pretty awesome intro to tube amps without spending too much (They're approx $200 in Japan based on current exchange rates). It's more susceptible to vibrations in comparison to the larger tube amps. I'm actually quite surprised a low cost kit amp like this sounds the way it does. Granted it's a hybrid and I did plonk in a $40 Muses02 OpAmp in it but this tube amp is like a gem in a garage sale.
Believe it or not, I do bring it to the office or to the local cafe. Basically anywhere I can sit down for at least an hour or two, I'd bring it out. Naturally if I'm going shopping, taking the train, bus, or walking around I don't use it. It actually doesn't produce much heat at all. Even after an hour's worth of operation, I can touch the tubes. The glow is actually from LED.
listening to tube amp in a tokyo cafe... a personal Jazz kissa.
