Bigger Ben Review – Making Music “Great” Again

Making Music “Great” Again” – The AmpsandSound Bigger Ben

Having grown weary of the boob tube, satellite radio, or any medium discussing our current season of political malcontents, discontent, and boisterous claims of making our Republic “great” again, it was with great anticipation that I took delivery of the AmpsandSound Bigger Ben single-ended tube amplifier. At a time in my life when I need a new tube amplifier like I need another robocall from a presidential candidate, the Bigger Ben seemed like the more intelligent use of my money.

Politics 24/7 has worn me out; and those who know me […]

Feedback from satisfied Kenzie owner.

By |February 7th, 2016|Amps, Feeback, News|0 Comments|

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|Amps, Feeback, News|0 Comments|

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 […]

Listening Party

By |November 22nd, 2015|News|0 Comments|

I told Steve Lefkowicz about my headphone amp and the new Eliptrac 240s… He wanted to come hear and brought along some friends. Russ, Stratton, Steve Lefkowicz, and Mike Mercer. My 2 close friends join in to aid with setup. Andy Mawhinney, Art Acosta. My wife and daughter were out of town so setting up the whole house to audition was pretty amazing. After comparing my reference pair of Cornscalas to the pair getting ready to be shipped to NYC all agreed that the big boys were better in every respect. (I still love my pair more 🙂 ). […]

Mike Mercer hears Kenzie Headphone amp

By |November 22nd, 2015|News|0 Comments|

Mike Mercer was kind enough to listen to my Kenzie headphone amp with Mr. Speaker Ether C headphones. I’ve used Audezze LCDs before and loved, but the Ether C took out the room interaction and we so light and comfortable. If you need a reference headphone it might be the one. Mike had the volume 10:30 and the Ether Cs were jaw dropping. Headphones are truly a way to taste reference level sound without the need of big speakers or complex systems.

Never had some many good ears listening. They brought and left some great music, fun […]
