That looks close to one of my favorite colors, British racing green. Good stuff
Dude - I actually sometimes avoid turning on my tube amp, which is right next to my desk, in the summer. It legit gets toasty!
Also, that Cayin might be the one of the prettiest amps I’ve ever seen.
Big tubes, a lot of power, it’s a campfire while you listen to music. I think there are some (tube amps) out there that will compromise between heat, power, efficiency but still sounding really good. I’ve head to have a tube amp last a year in my inventory (or any piece of gear), so we’ll see…
In term of styling, it looks like 70s/80s product .
It sounds pretty decent too with good detail. But, the hum at high impedance setting and being microphonic is really annoying
Is that a 445? Would love to hear your thoughts on how it differ from your stellaris and studio b!
I miss my EC amps. Had the Super 7 and Balancing Act at different times and thoroughly enjoyed both.
I have a preamp and amp by Dennis Had. I’ve been curious about trying the IHA-1.
Electrical contact cleaner, quick drying formula if you’re impatient like me.
