I think they’re struggling to know what words to use to describe it! Seems pretty bomb-proof with 800 watts into 4ohms, and claims to drive any known speaker. As well it might at that price.

I gather it’s mainly for the US market, presumably to compete with the big McIntosh, Accuphase, D’Agostino, etc.
The blurb does make interesting and amusing reading.

The analogue output would have to go to two amplifiers....
But that's what happens when using monoblocks doesn't it?

Of course nobody would dream of any such low priced source with them....even if the Mini's DAC / output was really good.

...and they must require a higher, XLR voltage feed at that price, surely.

…courtesy of the £35,000 Klimax DSM streamer and preamp, no doubt!

Note to readers - Other preamps are available! 😉

800w, that's a whole garage full of Ferraris worth of insecurity or inadequacy somebody is trying to overcome.

I see Linn has just released new monoblock amps (£75k a pair) that offer 'exceptional clarity '.
Wouldn't this be determined by whatever preamp you were connecting them to?
Discuss......
I'm sure they will supply a matching pre if you ask them nicely! Prices are bonkers crazy.

Less is best for those mighty mono-blocks, Icon Passive Preamp is best for the cleanest single.

And it needs to make a statement, disgusting extravagance deserves the most expensive loud speakers - I give you the Golden Smurfs. Dah da da da dah......

There needs to be a nice balance, essentially, how this would be perceived by your immediate circles, Humility meets the Emperors Clothing. :sneaky:
