Not as beautiful as the TT , but definitely one of my favourite amps and a perfect match for my speakers.

Before the Pathos classic one ,i had a Mark levinson 334 power amp ,now this is a monster of an amp weighed about 50kg. It sounded beautiful with my Merlins ,but unfortunately i had to sell the ML due to unforeseen circumstances. Before the Mark Levinson i had a Plinius SA 50 MKIII on a set of Sonus Faber Grand piano's ,and they to sounded very good.
After selling the Mark Levinson i was left with some small change and started searching for a small amp, as it was all i could afford, and i said it will take me many years to get to where i was .So i started from the bottom,and after getting some advice from Stefan and Alleycat here on the forum i decided to settle for a Pathos classic one, .
When i hooked up the Classic one to the Merlin's, i was shocked at what i was hearing, it was just unbelievable .The synergy was just almost perfect, and the classic one did not have the authority over the Merlin's as the Mark levinson did but it had enough to make the Merlin's sing beautifully .I always underestimated the Classic one ,but after hearing it, i can live with it for a lifetime.
Thanks to Stefan at Airmusic for giving us the opportunity to have the Merlin's here in South Africa,although i don't think there will be any more Merlins after the death of their creator ,and also thanks to Stefan and Alleycat for giving me excellent advice on the Pathos Classic one.
Don't ever think that bigger is better ,and more expensive is better ,it's not always the case ,synergy is very important.
I think this picture belongs here
