Sound Clip - Out of Africa by John Barry
Jim - I am sitting and listening to your amp- it is all warmed up and playing a new "Tommy" LP. The amp sounds just stunning: very powerful and dynamic, detailed, open, huge bottom end. I will say that bypassing the presence and treble controls raised the volume and lifted a veil. I have listened to and owned lots of amps and I am amazed by the value in this one- it could compete with amps costing three times as much. Once warmed up, it was immediately and completely involving. Please feel free to use me as a reference for this fine amp. Best regards, Jeff S. (New York)
Hi Jim - I just wanted to let you know that I have received the 4772 amp today. Man, does it look beautiful!!!To me, it is a piece of art, just like the other amps I have from you. I was impressed by it's size, it is bigger than I thought and sometimes bigger is better :-) It seems to have survived the journey over the Atlantic well. I am really happy Jim, thank you so much for building it for me! You guys at Frenzel are the best. I will get back to you for more orders soon..(thinking of the twin deluxe and the champ sportster at the moment..and I have some ideas that we might get to work) and oh yes, that mic-preamp we were discussing some time ago! Only a fool would be satisfied before he have all the products you have to offer. :-) Honestly, your amps warm my heart, I am not just buying an amp when I buy from you, it's so much more and so much better (and definitely more value!!)! Once again, thank you so much!! Anders H. (Switzerland)
Thank you Jim. I spent two hours last night discovering what I have been missing from my CDs. I finally found the amp that would match my DIY full-range speakers and at a price that did not leave a hole in my pocket. Thank you for the passion and effort that have been placed into the building of this amp. It shows in the results. I would like you to know also that this is my favorite amp for music - it's like being rocked to sleep. It is connected to a stereo speaker that I made with Audio Nirvana full-range 12 inch speakers. They match better than a husband and wife. Basil C. (California)
