Overview

This is a much improved amp over the original eVo (itself a highly rated amp). With 120W on tap at 8 ohms and 240W in 4 ohms, it can be boosted to 360W and 700W respectively if you find another unit and run them as monoblocks. The amplification may be digital in nature but we would never have guess it because it sounded so warm, tight, detailed…musical. And that was all it needed to do to convince us its reputation among reviewers and users were correctly held in the highest esteem. If you need an amp with power, it has it. If you want an amp that sounded as good as any amp costing up to $6,000, this is it. Aesthetically pleasing (looks way better than the earlier eVo) and offering XLR and RCA input, there is really nothing to fault on this amp. For under $1,200 now, this is a bargain for the audiophile who wants to own one of the best sounding mid-fi amp out there.

Cosmetically, the amp is in very nice shape. Minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. The plastic cap over one of the speaker binding posts is cracked but it has no impact on the working of the binding post or sound. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
