Hey Guys, anyone here have experience on these Hifi Tube Amps?
I'm really intrigued and very interested on buying one soon, for listening records, Ipod and cd's..
Are these reliable? Any recommendations much appreciated Smile

Don't want to spend a whole lot, those US made audiophile hifi tube amps probably cost much but these Chinese tube amps are right on my budget. Laughing

My only concern is the reliabitly? I don't want something that will break down right away Laughing


Carvin TS100 sounds awesome, friend of mine had one before and used it with digital preamp..

If it's not shipped from China and they actually have a warranty it should be sweet. I made a mistake about 10 years ago on a very pretty Chinese made hi-fi tube amp (about $400 after shipping.)

It sounded sweet for a month until it decided to catch on fire. Shitty experience, and unless they'll stand behind it I wouldn't bother. Shipping on a fix should at a minimum only cost you to return.

Guess I got burned... Lol

That's what I'm afraid of've, these Amps generate a lot of heat from what I heard? If I buy one, I'll bring it to an Amp guy and have it ( upgrade the capacitors and transistors inside the amp?) fully inspected Laughing

KT88s and a set of high quality 5751s in the PI and it'll be HiFi 'till the sun stops shining Smile
