all (good) amps sound the same.

no sound at all, they just amplify the signal ;)

imo, if they change the signal at all, its not a good amp :)
True, however all amps reviewed short of the 'Posh' section were less likely to achieve that standard. Read Adam's comments on the amps, he's enthusiastic beyond reason and really enjoys what he does, despite having to review a silly number of amps in an incredibly short time. He's also reviewed a number of speakers, also en masse, and that too is well worth a read.

With Adam's reviews you do need to read the whole set, just incase he's said something elsewhere that the manufacturer/distributor would have objected to in the review.

If you have the slightest hint of a sense of humour this review pretty much proves not all amps are equal;):D

Hmm...anyone around Northampton want to start an underground pipeline? I'll send JL Slash-series amps, and get Edward Green and John Lobb shoes in return. I think a new 300/4 should be worth roughly a pair of JL Williams in buffalo calf during Lobb's biannual sale...

if i read even 3% of the reviews on teh www id have no time for wanking.

i never read anything, and altho i do a lot of wanking, i generally buy used audio gear that everyone else has been using for a while with good results.

but i like a laugh.

I remember when i posted a pic of a Koac as a joke, then a short time later a mate got scammed for one.

now they are reviewing them ...Priceless :p:p:p
