for the YBA2 high current

A very precise all-revealing amp. It will send tio the speakers what you feed it without altering the signal. Needs a good pre-amp, preferrable a YBA 2 or 3. Very much power, very much control. I love this amp and whatever I hear elsewhere I keep coming back to my YBA-2. If you have a non HC (high current) version, have it modifies.

Product Weakness: steep price, looks (but who cares? Eyes don't hear)
Product Strengths: all an amp should be and more
