Bottom Line:   
The GLA is a very well built tube amp which has the lowend of a solid state amp.Don't let the wattage at 40wpc fool you--I think this amp can drive most conventional speakers out there.The mid's are in the Quicksilver tradition-full and lush..I picked this amp up used for approx. 750.00 and it will be very difficult to find a better ss/or tube amp near this price point.

sweet, smoothe, and plenty of power! nice low end and just plain sounds good. still trying to decide between this one and the mesa tigris integrated. i'm leaning towards the mesa but the quicksilver is one helluva buy! 4 stars

Bottom Line:   
After two years, this amp does not cease to amaze me. It has a tight bottom end and an extended top, certainly not what is considered to be the norm in a tube amp. The huge transformers put out plenty of current, certainly enough to put a headlock on my Totem Model 1's. In fact the two make a very synergistic combination. The GLA replaced a Counterpoint amp in my system which it thoroughly devastated in a head to head comparison. The GLA was more dynamic, had a much better base, and sounded more like music. At half the watts. The GLA is a 40 watt per channel stereo amp with EL34's, but will also accept 6550's and KT88's. Theoretically these tubes would increase the power output. Within it's power and impedence matching constraints, the GLA will give you a mighty big slice of the very best in high end performance. Can be had reasonably on the used market, but mine's not for sale.
