A super little amplifier which glows in the dark like a Sci-Fi retro-style power station and has produced beautiful sound from every audio source that I've plugged into it over the last few weeks. This will make you rediscover your music collection.
The Bluetooth input option is very useful when you're accessing music stored on a network drive via an I-Pad. It really is worth adding a high quality powered sub-woofer to bring just that little bit extra to the bass. I'm glad that they thought of providing a sub out socket to make that so easy.
I've tried it with a Pro-Ject turntable, which produces a line level output from an Ortofon magnetic pickup cartridge and that works well too. Don't insult this amp by using a cheap ceramic pickup - it deserves better than that!
This was the best Christmas present that I have ever bought myself and I didn't even have to say "Oh, you shouldn't have........."
