SST Son of Ampzilla II -- Review units; SAVE OVER 40%. Just two available! [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is an extremely rare opportunity to save on one of the finest amplifiers under $5k! We have a couple review units that were returned. They are in like-new condition but we can't sell them as new, so we're discounting the price drastically to move them. We also have the companion preamplifier, Thoebe II, listed for sale as well. 

Recent accolades:

"My time with the Son of Ampzilla II has been both a revelation and a privilege. I have never found such a high performing solid-state amplifier at this price point".

- Hi-Fi+

"The Son of Ampzilla II performs at the top of its price level and above with a very neutral, near-characterless sound. I found it honors music at least as well as the Levinson No. 532h [$8,500]re Parasound JC-1 [$9,000/pr.], Manley Neo Classic 250 [$9,000/pr.] or Bryston 7BSST2 [$9,200/pr.]." 

-10 Audio

"When it comes to the sound, these units (Son of Ampzilla II and Thoebe II preamplifier) remind me of the Ambrosia and Ampzilla 2000: the same quietness, smoothness, transparency, dynamic range, and that elusive impression of body, dimensionality, and solidity."

-The Absolute Sound

"I noted a rich and full bottom-end, but also a pleasant openness in the midrange that many solid state designs don’t quite capture....One of the greatest secrets in all of the High End."

-Dagogo
