        Nice Myles. Why are they not symmetrical , but closer to the left speaker?

        How is the sonic ug vs the Stereo amp?

          My guess is an interconnect length.

        It’s a bit of optical illusion (small difference) and because not permanent position. Am waiting for new 2nd SRA amp stand. Then current SRA amp stand goes back for retuning for new amps. In addition, We still have to get to AC.

        No comparison. Totally different amps. Playing in different league. (As good as stereo amp is.)

                    Sounds wonderful Myles, even via YouTube. Will need to order this LP asap. May I ask which interconnects and speaker cables are you using in this video? Would love to hear something from KOB if possible? Many thanks for sharing

                        Congrats on the new monoblocks! May I ask why you've chosen the Telos 440 and NOT the Telos 380 model which does not include the digital input option and thus has much less complex (potentially more reliable & better sounding ) circuit? Thank you!

                          Myles - How large is your room (L x W x H), how far are you from your speakers and do you feel different dimension ratios or larger space would be better or not?
