Hi All, couldnt pass up the opportunity to buy a SLO being sold locally here in the U.K. I went to try the amp today just to check out what one sounds like in person, not really to buy it. However, after playing through it, it was just amazing, what a sound! I was expecting it to sound good , but not this good. Now I understand what people mean by 'nothing sounds quite like a slo'. It also came loaded with some nos pre's and Philips 7581's power tubes.
