Scott Type 222C photos.
This a fantastic amplifier. It has all the good stuff that tube gear is supposed to have, and I could listen to music on this 24/7. It sounds 'ballsier' to me than the Dynaco tube gear (ST-70, PAS-3) I had last year. It has better bass extension than the Dynacos, but in my opinion, this is where tubes aren't the ultimate. If you listen to dance, reggae or even lots of Led Zeppelin, I think you'll find the transient response a bit lacking compared to a beefy solid state amp (say a Sansui AU-717). Overall, the sound is so musical and satisfying that you may not care. I'm loving it!
