Bottom Line:   
First I agree 100% with the first two reviews.
Other than my field coil drivers in open baffle and turntable this is the most significant improvement I have made to my system.
I am blown away at the improvment across the frequency spectrum.
Incredible value for the dollar.
The preamp is connected to 7 watt per channel Welborne Terraplane 300B monoblocks and the added gain is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Bottom Line:   
Without doubt a giant killer. Friends with $10k tube pre amps go very quiet when the Ming is up to heat and strutting its stuff. Tube rolled to reduce hum with matched 6922 from the Tubestore in Canada - which they sent to Auckland, New Zealand (my home) with no fuss.
Funny, no mainstream reviews - is it a conspiracy - can something be too cheap, or too good?

Bottom Line:   
Without doubt the best tube (or solid state) preamplifier I have ever heard! Initally somewhat skeptical because of the relatively low price and Chinese origin. What a pleasant surprise to hear such a glorious , energetic, effortless, truly natural sound- - unlike other tube preamps I have listened to. Not muddy or "overly tubey", but very lifelike without coloration. There are nine vacuum tubes, including (2) 2A3's, (1) EL34, (3) 6SN7's, and (3)6922's. Has point to point wiring and high build quality -- and more than adequate gain.Weighs 47 lbs. Comes with a remote with volume control and muting. Overall, a fantastic value for the nominal price.
