anybody know this amp?

http://hllyaudio.com/tube-amplifier/hlly-audio/high-end-tube-amplifier.html

At $198 I can't imagine it being much, but I'm still curious.

tks,

If it was $19,000 instead of $198 it would be world class.

I would just try it for fun

I don't know it. I'd like to see some 'gynecologic' pics to get an idea of the innards.

The engrish on the site isn't so good.

The 7 tube watts = 30 transistor watts is a little dubious...old fashioned high end style dubioius.

Try a search on the 6P1 tube and see what pops up. The amp you are looking at may really be flogging that tube...I'm not competent to be authoritative!

At the price, the worst that could happen is you end up with a conversation starting doorstop.

I'm less sensible, no more than an 87, tops.

FWIW. Out of curiousity I went on line and looked up devices using the 6P1 (6BQ5). There were a number of them in the $160 -$200 range. Quite a few had a very nicely finished chassis. Makes me think it may be worth buying one just to hear and if I don't like the sound at least I have an impressive looking base for a DIY.

I'm thinking along the same lines. I'd go for it.
