Bottom Line:   
Had a power surge meltdown and lost my old system, including a tubed Pro5 which I loved. But there had been problems. Not so with this little beauty, except for a sticking tape -monitor switch. I really could not be more pleased with it: excellent quality sound - from all perspectives; most especially spectral balance - and it has all the control flexibility one could want. I shall get another if this one packs up for sure. Was also able to "Tube buffer" my Oppo UDP with a pair of ART MP Studio mic pre-preamps and they plugged in with no discernable increase in noise and CD/SACD/DVD-A's on tubes give my vinyl a REAL run for the money.
Mainstream convenience with audiophile sound quality in sum-up.
