Kenzie Headphone Amp Review

June 27, 2014 2 min read

Review by joessportster on the Klipsch User Forum: I am currently auditioning this very animal using my HiFiMan He500, I am thinking REFERENCE level amplification………… This is the builder Justin Weber’s variant on the Darling circuit using the 1626 tube at 3/4wpc it is driving my phones easily as good as my 3wpc EL84 tube amp. The amp is the most revealing I have heard, all the nuance in vocals shines through with ease, I have always associated SET with romantic / warm / syrup…………….Not the case here with ZERO feedback this thing is as crisp and neutral as one […]

DIY Cornscala Review

June 09, 2014 2 min read

I only recently met Justin Weber through his company “Ampsandsound” and just completed a purchase on a beautiful set of speakers as an upgrade to my audio system. I really can’t say enough about how positive the experience was on multiple levels. First, with the huge advancements made over the past few years with respect to audio I had resigned myself to the purchase of a “name brand” set of speakers wherein current gear was compiled by the source (theoretically) with match and synergy. Just before pulling the trigger on a set I happened upon (by reference from a knowledgeable […]

Big Ben Review on Klipsch Forum

April 29, 2014 1 min read

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 have been waiting for some 3 score or more. Justin flat out […]

Kenzie Amp Review

April 07, 2014 1 min read

Kenzie Amp Review by C.L.Skoog I received my Kenzie amp from Justin two days ago. It arrived, superbly packaged and on-time. I have been spinning vinyl since 1967. In 1990, I started my CD collection but never quit my analog hobby for vinyl. I have been fortunate enough to be able to demo many tube and solid-state amps over the years. I have demoed McIntosh, Manley Labs and many other hi-end amps costing $10,000 or more. At this point I own a 2005 Manley Labs Sting Ray that is wired in triode and also a Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum with […]

Little Ben Review

April 04, 2014 3 min read

From Klipsch User Forum. Author: joshnich as he give his own Little Ben review. I am the happy owner of an ampsandsound little ben amplifier. Having read Joe and Deans review of the SE84 amp I was compelled to call Justin to purchase one as I figured it would be great for the office. After discussion with Justin, we settled on his “little ben”. I had the choice of a few different tubes and ended up with the EL 34. Any more information on exactly what the differences are between his various options would have to come from him. In […]

Recent work done at the shop

March 09, 2014 1 min read

Ryan has been tremendously busy in the shop veneering and building new plinths for orders heading out. We have begun using more exotic hardwoods including Sapele and African Mahogony. I’ve been in a bit of a lull waiting for parts. We have Top plates on order and are awaiting new test transformers for some projects we are fleshing out.

Started By joessportster, Feb 23 2014 07:53 AM 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.

Ampsandsound SE-84 My Impressions

February 22, 2014 3 min read

Started By joessportster, Feb 22 2014 01:14 PM 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 the people he meets, which is a rare […]

Stereo 15 From AmpsAndSound

February 04, 2014 1 min read

Started By jbsl, Feb 04 2014 07:56 PM Justin Weber from Amps and sound gave me a discount on a pre production model Stereo 15 he had and I have been enjoying it for the last 5 days now. I do not have a preamp so first I hooked my Oppo 103 up to the Stereo 15(ST 15) and used the volume control on the Oppo remote with very good results. Next I tried the passive preamp Justin provided with about the same results as the O 103. Finally I tried the pre out of my Denon 4800 with the best results. […]
