Well worth the wait! Serial #1009001 has arrived

Behold the 80 pound crate! The FedEx guy appreciated my help in lugging this into my apartment. In the future, WES's will be shipped in 2 separate crates.

Feet, feet discs, acrylic panels, and a whole mess of tubes

PSU and Amp units freshly unboxed

I cannot stress enough how well this amp sounds, fresh out of the box. As of right now, it feels like a PERFECT match for the SR-Omega. So amazingly musical, such strong and controlled bass... this thing is pulling me into even the most overprocessed recordings!

Expect more in-depth impressions maybe on Sunday - I am extremely swamped with work this weekend

Well packed in that massive crate it seems, and so nice of Kimchi to help you unbox it.

Enjoy!

Nice looking Kimchi.. I mean amp.. :)

That name reminds me of "Ramen" in this rainy weather, here in Atlanta.

That packaging looks superb.. Can't be packaged much better than that!

Would love to hear your impression, well you kinda did already, but more in depth impressions. :)

Regards
