Who said what about the Ampino ?...
The Ampino will transport you to where you can sit back and listen for hours to music rather than an audio system.
The beautiful, lifelike sound that this amplifier is capable of producing ensures that it will spark some conversations regarding the ever elusive point of diminishing audio returns.
If you dislike that Nelson Pass sound, you're naturally out of luck. But if you do like it, this little overachiever from Serbia gets you very close for 1/10th of the cash. In today's economy, dreams are made of that stuff. What a discovery!
