Bottom Line:   
Gaku-on and M10 audio note.
Ho provato tutti i modelli top:Mark Levinson,Cello,Krell,Cary audio,audio tekne, verdier, jadis,e non esiste nulla che suoni almeno lontanamente bene rispetto ai prodotti Kondo.
Se qualcuno si vuole illudere che si possa sentire live spendendo meno,faccia pure...
Non è vero che bisogna costruirgli l'impianto attorno,con 50W vanno bene gran parte dei diffusori in commercio..
C'e' chi si compra una casa con questi soldi e allora? C'e'anche chi questi soldi li spende in un mese...

Unbelievable, Clean and it fills all the empty holes that most people don't even understand. In response to the first word, it damn well better be, lol. Let's see, you could have a nice house, or an amp, hmmmmm... an instrument that amplifies sound or a place to live??? You make the choice. If you got the money, it's a definate plus.

Bottom Line:   
Just thinking,
on that amp price.. it makes very beautiful sound but I prefer to using the money to build a house than living with the amp and have no place for living
(ps: for the reviewer bellow : God's voice far better than gaku-on, even the amp cannot sounds as good as live performance :) )

Bottom Line:   
I recently purchases the GAKU-ON and am stunned by its performance. Natural Highs, solid lows, and a mid that turns you to sand.

Bottom Line:   
OK. A quarter-million bucks? Well, I know apartments in Japan are expensive and a man needs to make ends meet, but there is stuff JUST AS GOOD for a TENTH the price. I heard it in a private audio system in Boston, and well, it sounded fine to me, so 5 stars for $ound. I could make the best HT system in the world for the same price, and this is only a tube amp. Oh, value, guess what I will put...
