the pictures looked so nice and the reviews were so positive that I bought one of the MP 301 MK3 amps. I was a little leery of the low power but I have a set of sensitive speakers so I figured it might work. 6.5 watts is not a lot of power for my musical tastes which is progressive rock and 1st Wave 80-90's alternative. I also listen to modern Christian music but most of it is so horribly recorded that I struggle to listen to it when I am not in a noisy car. I spoke to the owner in person and he suggested the correct tube set which is the 6L6. The package arrived 2 days later via expedited mail but I was gone to the cabin for the last 4 days. I got home tonight in eager anticipation. First impression is that the box was a lot heavier than I thought it would be. The unit is not that big but weighs a ton. I have shipped a few things and thought I was pretty careful but these guys are way better. Perfect fitting double box. tubes carefully packed and a ton of rigid foam protecting the unit.
