Well, I figured Mark might try and buy the last one so I ordered one. Monoprice Amp With another 15% off...about $177US.

If I had a use / location for one, I'd consider it just to try it out.

And, of course, to amp-block you.

A bunch of us here in SoCal periodically get together for Jazz nights, where we listen to mostly jazz on vinyl on our systems. Yesterday, MK, a self proclaimed audio snob came over, and I set up the little Monoprice, Axiom M3V2, Sherwood CD/SACD/DVDA player.

Now, MK prefers tube MacIntosh amp and Cornscala custom speakers, but ... he was shocked by the Monoprice - Axiom M3V2 combination. We only had a half hour, but sampled Nora Jones, Bill Evans, Pete Ellis, and a SACD jazz sampler.

He said, as to sound quality, if you told me this was a $1,500 system, I would have thought you got a great deal.

This little Monoprice tube amp and Axiom M3V2 combination is SILLY GOOD.

BTW, I know it is described as a hybrid amp, but it looks like it has a pair of 12ax7 type tubes for the preamp section, and some weird EL type tubes for the amp section.

Anyway, if you're on a budget and want to try a tube amp which sounds very good, go get 'em.


Enjoy the Music. Trust your ears. Laugh at Folks Who Claim to Know it All.

I REALLY wish I could justify a use / location for that, because I would like to try it for the hell of it....or for the audio jewelry factor.

Mark, the thrill of buying something without any justification can be its own justification...


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Mark, if Joyce has any questions just refer her to Peter.
