Looks like an interesting new amp. I have an affinity for B&K
You mean this SET 120?
I haven't but would have read NOTHING but great reviews on AVA products. I am sure its a stellar amp and have tried to find more reviews on it, but it's a little more than I want to spend right now.
I can't believe nobody here has tried Van Alstine. I was going to go with this amp until i purchased the NuForce STA-200. Still my look into his pre amp. There is a review of bothe the SET120 and RBT10 preamp in the January issue of The Absolute Sound. My local Barnes & Nobles doesn't have the new issue yet or I would know what it says about the combo.
I have the RB10 tube preamp and I'm very happy with it. I don't need an amp now, but if I did I would go with AVA.
I have 2 pieces I am very happy with.
Amp Insight Double 440 HC
Preamp Vision SL with remote
When I was spec'ing systems I came across his page. I emailed him soliciting suggestions on amplification and he was set on me getting his Dynaco reissue amp. I haven't heard it but it wasn't something I was really interested in given the music I like and I never heard back from him.
That said, people seem to love his stuff. I was close to pulling the trigger but alas....
