for the Pucinni SE Integrated Amp


I've hook one on my Altec 604. Not a good match. Sounds had no life and was NOT involving at all. They say it sounds like tube... I've had lots of tube amps. This is not tube sounding. This is taste of the month. Soft and way too colorated. Its Main quality is its ability to create great voices. There, I had to say that it was impressive. Nina Simone and Dead Can Dance sounded great. But, forget it as soon as it rocks... this amp won't! Finally, the phono section sucks.I plugged my Garrad 401 turntable with AKG P8ES cartridge. Sound was very thin. My Onkyo 706 CD player sounded better!


Product Weakness: artificial and not involving sound, phono section sucks
Product Strengths: ability to create voices, good image
