A great sounding tube integrated. Item is in mint condition with new driver and preamp tubes, and will ship double boxed.
Low ballers and those with excessive negative feedback will be politely ignored.
US buyers only please.
Review from Stereophile:
The Manley Laboratories Stingray is a carefully thought-out, lovingly designed integrated amp with a big, open soundstage, a shimmering, crystalline top end, a clear, richly detailed midrange, and a lean, focused, articulate bass response with such superb speed and pacing that it more than compensates for its lack of extreme low-end heft.
Which is not to say that the Stingray doesn't have beaucoup bass. With small, warm, efficient bookshelf speakers, the Stingray's sound was rich, vibrant, and alive, with plenty of pep, detail, character, and punch. It was shocking how rich and musical the Stingray sounded with the humble little PSB Alpha minimonitors and the warm, sweet Soliloquy 5s.
Which is not to say that it lacked the guts to drive big full-range speakers...provided they have the requisite sensitivity. At HI-FI '99 in Chicago, I heard the Stingray drive the big Tannoy Churchills to purr-fection, while with my full-range Celestion A3s—in tandem with the warm, airy, triodelike midrange character and plump, autumnal upper-bass emphasis of the Monster Cable Sigma Retros—I was able to get as vivid, balanced, and involving a sound in my listening room as I've ever experienced.
All in all, the Stingray is cool, sexy, and musical. But mostly, it's fun. "
