How about the espressivo? Have you ever had the chance to listen to it? do you think it's a valid alternative?
I have not listened to Espressivo but I say it makes sense to buy it only if you need more inputs, otherwise for an entry level amp you can try Echo. Elise/Euforia use different types of tubes (6SN7/6AS7) and are better than both.

But is it worth buying it having a chord hugo 2?

On pictures it looks good but you should see it in person. It's gorgeous.

Hi, how would you describe the auteur and Elise combo? Ive got the auteurs in the making and am thinking of buying a feliks audio amp, although probably the less expensive espressivo.
I listened to Auteur with all 4 Feliks-Audio amps (as well as Primaluna and a few others) at last CanJam, concluded the Elise was "sweet spot" amongst them and bought it at the show. I am very, very happy with my choice. Even with stock tubes Auteur-Elise is a terrific combination, and I am now doing a little experimenting with tube rolling which opens up worlds of possible sound tweaking. Elise is a very well-built amp. as well and while at some point I may explore Euforia or a GOTL, Elise's excellent quality and tube rolling versatility have kept my gear upgaditis syndrome in complete remission.

Great looking rig! What turntable and phono preamp/stage do you use?

Thank you :)
It's a KAB-modded Technics SL 2000 Mk2 with their power supply, going into a Denon AU-300LC passive step-up transformer, then into my PS Audio GCPH balanced phono stage.
The step-up is necessary for the Denon DL-103 cartridge, which is extremely low output.

Nice! And the best part of this pic is that your album collection to the left is open to The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway! If you know me at all, you're aware that I'm a tremendous Steve Hackett fan!!!!!!

Redecorated recently, got rid of old sideboard and put my racks in place. Just some further tidying to do.
