TechRadar's verdict

"Big, characterful amp, with equally big and unforced sound that will appeal to many listeners"
For
  • Big, unflustered sound with excellent bass and timing
  • Beautifully built
  • Much-improved sense of timing and rhythm
  • Useful range of outputs
Against
  • Huge size may prove difficult to accommodate
  • Wide soundstage not always a plus
  • May be too laid back for your tastes
  • Case design means unsightly fingerprints
