I've been looking for a long time to buy one of these. I had postponed the purchase moment a year or so due to other problems, mainly because I was not able to find a decent, clean B-3 on the Chinese internal market. Finally, I spotted a good candidate and made the move. My wife encouraged and supported me all the way, she even got involved in this acquisition using some Chinese friends. Long story short, the last SIT amplifier, with the price tag same as B-2 (200000 yen), having the famous V-FETs from Yamaha, is on the way to me. I will probably get it on Friday or Saturday. The Chinese seller had some crazy expensive gear and send me many small 10 seconds movies with the B-3 in action driving some huge JBL 4344 speakers. http://hifido.co.jp/KW/G2/P0/A1/E/220-10/S0/C17-12621-66594-00/ Hope I made a good move quality wise with the B-3, with which I intend to drive the NS-1000M speakers. Keep you posted with pics asap!
