Power hungry

Mike Walker, Amazon

  • Summary: An excellent amplifier, with many useful features, including remote control volume, but had I known how much electricity it consumes, I wouldn't have bought it.

Serious doubts about the supplier

Aging geek, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: First, be aware that even though the listing shows "Tribal UK" as the supplier, my amplifier was shipped by "Hughes Direct", the supplier mentioned in R C Palmer's 1-star review. After reading that review and feedback on other web pages it's unlikely I would have ordered it if I had known about this. Both companies are based in Ipswich or nearby so I wonder whether they are in fact trading names of the same company or closely associated with each other.

lasted 14 months

Araghaidal, Amazon
6 May 2012
  • Summary: Everything was fine for the first 14 months until my amp blew. Amazon were not interested in doing anything about it and I was left to foot the bill for repair through a Pioneer recommended engineer. I subsequently discovered that Amazon get the equipment from Pioneer without any warranty to keep the cost down. So beware if anything happens 12 months after purchase. The second repair lasted less than 1 month when the amp blew again. Very disappointing.

Well worth buying

durcell, Amazon

  • Summary: I was surprised that after placing my order with Spatial Direct via amazon the amplifier arrived within a few days I must say its the best amplifier Ive ever owned I do like the front panel it hasn't got loads of knobs or flashing light, you are able to control the bass and treble to the level you wish when playing music. The amplifier very quiet when in use. If I could I give this item 10 stars also 10 stars to Spatial Direct for the quick delivery.

Room came alive

bhulesch "cicero", Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: My compact hifi packed in in a big way recently. I finally got around to trying to get it repaired - no joy. So I shopped around and this amplifier came out top EVERY TIME, in terms of value for money. I have two sets of speakers so the extra outlets were important - otherwise I may have opted for the A-109 which is cheaper and probably does an equally swell job. Also, I didn't want a 5.1 amp - we are more about music and less about movies.

  • Summary: Excellent service. Product is very easy to install and punches well above its weight for the price. Works really well with my floorstanding Eltax speakers.

Excellent product and service.

Mr. J. J. Cox "figgy", Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: Ordered bank holiday Monday delivered by free p&p Wednesday - beat that. Using with Celestion Ditton 44 monitor speakers with absolutely no detectable background hiss or hum whatsoever. Depending on input this amplifier produces a beautiful neutral sound. This is one of those few occasions where the sound is as good as the published specifications.
