It has been so beloved by Srajan Ebaen of 6Moons, that he awarded it a Blue Moon Award, and had it reviewed twice in his pages. To whit he said,
" After 10 years on the job, recognizing true greatness isn't brain surgery. Even so it's still quite the wakeup call. Consider yourself called then. But are you awake? Over and out to sneak in a few more hours of listening before this 'as compact as possible, as high-end as possible' amp is due back..."
The design goal of the AMP-11R is to be the world's best high-end compact amplifier. It is also a ridiculously good headphone amp. It puts out 13 watts per channel to the speakers and is a single input design. If you purchase the Bakoon Dac or Phono stage, you may also use the Satri input. This then gives you two possible inputs. Using the Satri inputs and cable, ups the ante from the already reference sound. The 11r is one of a few single stage amps in the world, in this case executed by Ikira Nagai in what he terms his Satri circuit. It is pure and beautiful. It comes with its own super cool and very functional rack, and a full sized power supply which sits beneath the unit itself. This is Japanese minimalism at its best, with a sense of design ethos added by a partnering Korean entity. The two together are Bakoon Products International.
This unit is in excellent condition.
