What People Say
Many thanks for the v40 amp which arrived with me promptly on Thursday, 6th July.
I am delighted with the physical appearance of the unit, which I think is very well finished, as well as being neat and elegant in design - a viewpoint which was also endorsed by my wife who, like many women, isn't overly enthused by the aesthetics of hi-fi boxes. I've now set up the v40, using my Lenovo Ideapad 510 laptop (which holds my CD collection, ripped using Windows Media Player at the best lossless level), which I use solely as a music server, along with my little Sonus Faber Toy speakers - the whole comprising a supplementary system which is situated in my lounge.
To date I have tested the system with a range of tracks - generally I listen to a wide range of vocal and instrumental music, but I'm not into rock - and my initial reaction is that sonically the v40 is a superb little amplifier, very detailed, and with that smoothness of valve reproduction. Overall, a lovely sound.
Many thanks for all the information which you have supplied, and for a beautiful product - it certainly lives up to the review which I'd read some months ago in "HiFi Choice", and also the information which you have made available online.
Best wishes for your continued success
