    This is a really great amplifier. I use it as a pre-amp that goes into an integrated amplifier and two bookshelf speakers. Even though it’s not a system that costs ten’s of thousands of dollars, I’m still able to get really satisfying audio quality out of it. Is great value for money and very future proof as it handles both MM and MC. Sounds much better after at least 5-10 minutes of warming up but once it is warmed up, it sings.

    The guys at Groove Audio really bent over backwards to help me select and set up my whole system–they didn’t try to oversell and made sure they helped me get the best system for my budget. This amp is a really key part of my system.
