    Forget about: osteopath...osteopathS (plural), physio pain clinic, and Scotland's leading orthopaedic surgeons on standby (if Brexit hasn't made them leave yet LOL).

    Gavin, I heard the 2160 two years ago - Just before I started blogging http://zero-distortion.org/yg-hailey/ - here it was really good, one of the best SS amps I heard. And with some tuning surely could be turned in to the best.

    Then, Gian and I heard it with the big TADs at the Italian distro's place http://zero-distortion.org/the-itali...top-road-trip/. It also had the Atlas going through the boulder phono on a Basis TT. Maybe too clean a sound, and some mismatch between the speakers and the amps, not sure. Luckily for us in the next room was the Tenor 75 OTL
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD
