Feedback from satisfied Kenzie owner.

By |February 7th, 2016|

Hi Joe, Good to hear from someone else the owns the Kenzie. I am really loving the Kenzie as well. When I purchased the Metrum Octave MKII NOS Dac, it was recommended to look for a zero feedback amp. That is how I found Ampsandsound, and your review of the Kenzie. I knew this was the amp I wanted to try. I have two pair of Hifiman headphones, the HE-6, hard to drive, and the HE-4, that also likes current. Justin recommended the 600ohm setting for the Hifiman, even though the impedance is 50ohms. […]

New Review of Stereo 15 Sp Ed. – Positive-Feedback

By |January 25th, 2016|

Review of ampsandsound Stereo 15 Sp. Ed.

The Stereo 15 Special Edition (there doesn’t seem to be a regular edition) is a basic two channel stereo power amp, running a pair of EL84 tubes per channel in a push-pull, ultra linear configuration, based on “the famous Hafler circuit with cathode bias allowing for trouble free operation” (quoted from their web site). It also uses one 12AX7 and one 12BH7 (1/2 per channel) and is the first tube rectified amp I’ve ever tried. My review sample was sent with both a 5U4 and a 5AR4, which I swapped out a […]

Rave review for Stereo 15 Sp. Edition

By |June 22nd, 2015|

IMG_3525

Mark Shields Time for me to rave about the beauty pictured above, the Stereo 15. Gorgeous, rich, full, glowing sound bridging the whole spectrum. I can’t praise it enough. Its dynamics and power completely bely the 15 watt rating. It easily drove my huge room to reference volume levels without any distortion. It’s also somehow the quietest amp I think I’ve ever heard. No background noise at all. If I had to sum up this amp with one statement, I would say it embodies everything that true audio lovers adore about […]

Cabinets, assembly, and overall “generalship” from beginning to end – Justin Weber

Overall this was such a terrific experience that I want to give a […]

Big Ben Review By 2Bmusic:
It has taken me awhile to post this. Lots of personal issues that had to be resolved. At any rate, I just wanted to say thank you to Justin Weber for the advise, and helping me to get my system set up, running and sounding great. There are many wonderful vendors here. Justin is certainly one of them. After much reading and question asking, I decided on SET Big Ben to power my LaScalas. BB is incredible and the sound is everything I […]

I recently acquired Justins  design prototype For his Full Ranger speaker at ampsandsound.com, Mine differs from the version he is now selling on his website in that mine is a little bigger and ported, His finished design is transmission line cabinet, which in theory should make it even better than mine.

I also want to restate Justin is one of the finest people I have met, If you order from Justin you can expect outstanding service and impeccable shipping / packing took […]

Ampsandsound SE-84 My Impressions

First off I want to start with a summary of my experience dealing with Justin

of ampsandsound.com, Through hundreds of audio deals on several sites I can honestly say I

have never had a better experience.  Justin is far and away one of the most thoughtful

and genuine people i have met in this hobby or anywhere else for that matter.

He not only cares more about music and how his products perform than he seems

to care about money, He also shows great compassion for […]
