More photos of this amp in operation coming up soon!

Also another set of similar amps in the works, in slightly different chassis style. Stay tuned!

  1. Wow, they really look stunning in black with the silver transformer covers. And I like the 'perfectly square' profile (no need to decide between portrait or landscape!)

  2. You still have the Tangos in stock...?

    1. Hi! Yes, when ISO Tango announced that they close business, I stocked up. However some are almost being used up. I have only one other unused pair of the X10S output transformers used in these amps.
