    Re: Enleum AMP-23R integrated amplifier

    Itís a gift, what can I say.

    Hopefully I find gear that everyone can love at not crazy prices.

    Mine is wonderful, especially on my Fleetwood Deville speakers. Even the headphone part is supposed to be great, Iím not a headphone guy.

    While I love the super expensive gear, itís difficult for me to justify these days. I love finding the undiscovered jems.

    Joe, is this a Class D amp?

    BTW, as you have an AkitikA amp, do you know of any good preamplifier kits? I feel like building something again.

    As far as I know it's Class AB, but definitely NOT Class D.

    Akitika does make a preamp kit that's supposed to be really good.

    Bakoon aka Enleum are the brainchild of Akira Nagai. Soo Chae was a customer turned partner in that he licensed the technology and built his version in Korea in a sexier chassis.

    Nagai-san's amps are class A/B, his claim to fame is the exclusive use of transimpedance circuit topology which he perfected for audio amplification. To get the most out of his gear he recommends staying with his DAC, phono preamps, etc otherwise the signal will go through an unnecessary voltage to impedance conversion depending on inputs used, which is why he has BNC for linking his gear and RCA for connecting traditional voltage gain components.

    Re: Enleum AMP-23R integrated amplifier

    These Bakoons sound extremely goodÖ.demoing the bigger Korean one. And in short, things are lit up, even at first volume. The pace is so much more to my liking and what Iím used to.
