Mini Torii impression after 1st year of listening
10/12/11 at 01:01:32
 
The Mini Torii is an amazing amplifier.  For the last year Iíve gone slowly through my record collection and am hearing things I never even imagined could come out of my speakers Ėitís like having an entirely new audio system.  The Mini Torii allows the emotional content and dynamics of a performance to come through because it has the resolution and speed required to do so.  Iíve never had so much fun listening to music.  The Mini Torii brings you right into the performance -well recorded music is absolutely riveting.

Iím also impressed with the sound level you can achieve with only 4 watts per channel  Ėwith reasonably efficient speakers this amp gets plenty LOUD.  I have a pair of Klipsch Heresyís and Focal JM Lab Chorusís, and the Mini Torii has plenty of power driving either of them.  With the Klipsch I canít even turn the Mini Torii up all the way without hurting my ears.

The other big surprise is that the Mini Torii keeps getting better.  The biggest jump was in the first six months but even during the next 6 months the Mini Torii continued to improve.  Iíve listened to LPís again that I initially played in the first six months that sound much better now.

Analogwave,

I'm glad you are enjoying your Mini Torii.  Love mine!

It's a pretty little jewel that you can pick up in one hand!

I think the Apple design people would love it.

SeanK,

Yes, especially at night when the tubes light up the room Ėit definitely adds to the listening experience.  It's nice to see amplification in action.  The Mini Torii is as close to a direct path to recordings as I've ever heard.

I am on my second Mini Torii. I have had the privilege of owning the No. 3 unit, the first one with the EX transformers; it had a painted, as opposed to a powder coated top.  I sold it and bought a regular powder coated version. Both of them sound wonderful and the sound evolves, i.e., improves over time.
