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.

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...

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