Very nice reviews. So the WA3+ is the least preferred; not surprising considering its price. And superb effort on compiling and linking to so many reviews. I read them all!

Actually it was not the least preferred. But in any case you have understood correctly that in this case I like and can recommend, given the right headphones and budget, all of these amps.

Thanks for the prompt reply here. I guess I should have taken the review more in context and not hung on to every word of the actual physical review.

Sigh;

My tube amp is only 16th on Sky's list...but wait. I use 2 of them..perhaps I'm really 32nd.

Just kidding. Many thanks for your work Sir. Like most others I don't get to listen to many amps. I read reviews. I listen to what I can, and I thank you and the other reviewers who provide a consistent "view" of the sound of things we don't get to hear.

Nice work. Thanks for assembling this list. Without your, and other people's considerable efforts, many of us would be considerably more lost here.

You should add price tags after the names, put things in perspective. I'm surprised to see the darkvoice 337 so high, never knew it was any good

Thank you. Nice to see mine at #11 (and this after some much more expensive amps thru my room). I did have the DV337 for some time and you helped with tube selection but I never warmed to it. The mighty little original ASL is hard to beat for the $$ and it's flexibility is wonderful between OTL (Senns) and Trans (Denon's) - I am curious about the new DV3322 however!
Great work!

Rob, your value to the Head-Fi community cannot be overstated. Thank you for the hours and hours you spend reviewing equipment and sharing your opinions. People pay money for this kind of information.

I would like to buy you a beer at the next opportunity
