The SA-100 is Counterpoint’s more modest tube hybrid amp. Rated at 100W per channel with four 6DJ8 tubes (2 per channel), it offered the warmth of tube but power of solid state in an affordably priced but well put together package. This, in our opinion is a mid level power amp that offered an alternative for the solid state guy who wants to add some tube warmth to his system. For tube rollers on the other hand, this is a delightful amp to tube roll the tubes to best suit your listening taste and system. It currently has four ARS 6DJ8 tubes inside that all tested good. If you want to add a bit more “sparkle” you may want to try swapping them out for JJ’s or Sovtek’s. See our other listing for the matching SA-3 tube preamp.
Cosmetically, the amp looks really good. Some minor scuff marks here and there but nothing major. Amp will be securely packed for safe shipping.
