    Looks like Feliks Audio haven't forgotten about those on a tighter budget.

    Looks like a slimmed down Espressivo. From my experience with Feliks Audio, it's going to be excellent for the price.

    This does indeed look another very good value-for-money headphone amp from Feliks-Audio, and well-constructed.

    This will take their range from budget to (possibly) forthcoming top-of-the-range 2A3 based hp and speaker amp - quite a feat for a relatively small, family run business!

    Good luck, F-A!

    I was hoping to see more impressions of the Echo, but it doesn't seem too popular, yet. I'd been leaning towards a Valhalla 2 as my first tube amp, but then fell in love with the Euforia at CanJam. Since the Valhalla and the Echo come stock with the same tubes, I'm now leaning towards Feliks, but it would be really nice to see some reviews, somewhere.
