The world of glass amplification seems to have expanded somewhat of late ... (it hasn't expanded into my realm, but you never know which way my warped fancies will take me )
There are more than a host of Chinese made valve amplifiers out there ... enormous numbers with all sorts of brand names ... Look in ebay and you'll find that Hong Kong deals in more glass than a bottle manufacturer before the Aussie cricket season.
Many of these amps provide tempting options money wise - they suggest good bang for buck, but is this fair dinkum?
I have listened to a couple, and wasn't all that impressed ... but the set up and listening environment wasn't ideal - and these were "lower end" amps (but I have never believed that we can judge sonic quality by dollars or nationality).
Have any of you fellas heard any of these new generation of Asian audio machines?
Now, please, lets not get into brand or nation bashing ... just honest opinions from blokes wot know
