    Price looks surprisingly not bad! Out of stock as far as I can see though.
    Wondering how it'd compare to some of the forum standbys.

    It's crazy how much useful functionality is packed into this little amp: it has an internal WM8741 dac with spdif/usb/tos inputs that actually sounds great (esp fed using pi2aes), additional analog aux and phono inputs, fixed biasing with external knobs and dial, and even speaker outs! Transformers are hand-wound by a guy who used to work at tango. All in a package with a footprint less than half a sheet of paper.

    Unfortunately it looks like the amp may only be sold within Japan; need to send an email to Andix to be sure. I bought it from a head-fier who literally hand-carried the amp from Japan to the US. I don’t know about shipping it around because I don’t have secure shipping material for it, but I’d love to bring it to future SBAF meets to get some ears on it. It’s good enough I’m considering selling my starlett.

    May I ask about the tone and, uh, speed? Just wanna know if it's on the "zippy" or the "mellow" side of things.
