    Mike, you know how incredible the speakers sound, and you were oh so right. The Wooden combo just elevates my music listening sessions even more. I just can not believe how happy my system makes me. OMG! Awesome!
    Does the wood in the amps and pre allow the electronics to resonate, like an instrument? If so, is that one of major differences?

    For the last 10 years I have been worried that I would have to come out of retirement and get a job due to a woman's spending habits. I couldn't foresee that Audiophile GREED would be my retirement undoing!! Misho whats your Paypal address and do I have to send this thing back to Bulgaria if something implodes down the road??? That's probably my biggest concern.

    I’m sure Misho factored the resonance/insulation into the design. Whatever else he’s doing is absolutely working wonderfully.

    wow! beautiful! there is a special place in audio heaven for handmade amps.

    wonder how the 3.5wpc would be with my 97db speakers - unfortunately, probably not sensitive enough.

    congratz on finding this wonderful piece of gear and glad the leap-of-faith worked out.

    Ha!

    As far as repair goes, ultimately yes, a trip back to Bulgaria could be be necessary. However, I feel confident in knowing a few technicians either in Connecticut or Brooklyn (?) that maybe in concert with Misho would be able to fix any issues that come up. In the grand scheme of things, it’s not a ton of money so I’ll do my best to deal with a repair should something happen.

    I’m sure your speakers could work fine. Misho was dying for me to get his gear going, even on my JBL 4367 or Klipsch speaker’s. I was using my Luxman MQ300 on my 4367 for a little while with 8 wpc and damn, thought that was great too.

    He said go ahead, you might be surprised. I chickened out, sadly.

    Thank you Sean. I’ve always been one to go for lesser known companies and give them a shot. I’ve been highly rewarded with Job, Nord, Misho and others that I cannot remember right now. There’s a lot of superb talent out there and they need to be supported.
