for the SA-34SB

Having owned and lived with amps like; Linn Klout, Sonic Frontiers Power One,YBA2,Blue Circle BC22,Bryston 3BST,I can say that compared to the live concerts I attend of blues, jazz, folk and some classical, the SA 34SB through my Loth-X Ambience speakers sounds more like the live musical event than any of the amps I`ve personally owned.

The music sounds very real. The speakers disappear and the music jumps out from a wide expanse along my front wall behind the speakers. The musicians seem to be alive in my room. The 4 watts of power are able to drive these speakers to realistic sound levels in my 13x23 foot room.

I felt this way about the amp and speakers before I read the excellent reviews in Ultra Audio and 6 Moons Audio

Product Weakness: non that I can find
Product Strengths: dymamic, transparent, very alive and real sounding, extremely non fatiguing, can listen for hours with interest
