* Boutique amplifiers and in particular “exotic” single ended tube amps seem to always be priced to the hi- end of the spectrum. Provides credibility that high price = high quality. And economically, less units need to be sold to make the targeted margins.

If you make it the right size, one of their horns might fit..  or two if you dare.:emotion-14:

Buy an amp from China and have all the fidelity without the high price.  Price does not equate to fidelity.  A good used Mc Intosh will work if you like spending money.

Is anyone familiar with this company?  Their amp appears to be well made although the price seems very high to me:

Interesting company, expensive products. I think you pay a premium for a certain artistic-ness. I like the whole museum thing they do with Andrew Bird, one of my current favorite musicians. I tend to like any company selling tube products because they are helping propagate the species. All things considered, They sell my two favorite things: Tubes and Horns!
