Yup, I do like it; however, I haven't listened to a whole lot of different material yet. While I don't hear a huge difference from my el-cheapo Sony Stereo Receiver, it does impart some smoothness to certain material but it still maintains good bass & high end detail.
It especially shines with music like Sade, Chuck Mangione (1983 'Journey to a Rainbow' never sounded better) & Salsa that has lots of horns. I haven't tried Rock, Classical or Clapton yet.
I haven't quite figured out the differences or benefits of Ultralinear vs Triode modes yet. Both modes sound fine & provide good volume considering that the Triode mode halves the power for supposedly smoother sound.
The pic is of the amp in all its glory in subdued light (I should have used my tripod). It is way too cool to look at & is worth having it in the room even if there is no music playing.
