Can't Keep a Brilliant Amp Down. Rave Review

The Brilliant Audion EL34 Amp at True Audiophile

HiFi Critic Best Buy Dec 2018

In use, the Audion proved to be quite a joy, as its controls were simple enough once one had got used to the unorthodox lever switch arrangement. It behaved itself immaculately during testing and appeared to have plenty of power and heft to drive the AN-J loudspeakers.

So let’s go back to the company’s mission statement for producing equipment that delivers great sound for the money? Have they achieved that? Well, I would have to say that the Sterling EL34 Anniversary has succeeded in spades. It is not a huge amount of money for such a sweet-sounding, detailed and musical performer.

I am happy to give it a Best Buy rating, and suggest that if you’re looking for an integrated amplifier at around £1,500 to £2,500, overlook this design at your peril.

Time to hear the difference.
