That is pushing the definition of 'transportable' never mind 'portable'! I imagine such a large case is good for heat displacement?

You are right
Wagnus is more as transportable amp than portable , because of the big size .
The weight Iyan self is lighter than my HDP R10
I don't know why they make Wagnus so big biggrin.gif

Hi Rudi

 

Any more impressions now that you had it for a while? Any comparison to existing portable or desktop amps that you have?

Any comparisons with the Lisa II, Pico Power or Portaphile 627 would be great.

 

Cheers,

Andy.
