"My expectation was that it would produce just a beautiful, intimate mid-band, with great natural timbres and tone. Along with this, it would fall short in areas like micro-dynamics/clarity, top-end extension/air, and be muddy on the bottom octaves. Surprisingly, my speculations were totally wrong. This integrated amp not only has the top and bottom extension, slam and powerful macro-dynamics, but it adds that special 300B magic of purity of color and tone. "
"What immediately grabbed my attention was grace and fluidity. The sound was never unnatural, even when the music was jarring. Like a handful of similar designs, all sporting 12-25 watts, nothing about the AN300B was mechanical or artificial.The frequency response is excellent. With 300B output tubes, the output transformers are easy to wind, plus the drive circuit is simple. The result is wide bandwidth."
