Every time, the amp presents the music in an incredible, natural detailed way. The top end is vivid yet never harsh which is important for my somewhat bright speakers. Notably, harmonics that are usually present at 5000$ tube amps are vividly present and add space, body and realism to the music. The midrange is full bodied, textured, and very neutral in its staging. Bass is ridiculous, endless power, yet always tonally accurate and well behaved. imaging is precise to the point you can reach out and “touch” the players. But really just the sheer amount of information retained across the spectrum, source to speakers wise, is a joy. I wasn’t expecting the amount of musical goodness this amp brought.
Also notable are Kinki-Studio’s staff, which have been very helpful throughout the process - pre and post purchase - and provide great support for their products.
To conclude, don’t hesitate - This one’s a keeper.
