Positive Feedback Online Reviewer Jeff Day:
"Record after record, the result was pretty much the same: whether I was
listening to jazz, classical, opera, or rock & roll I was always immersed
into an intense musical experience with the Sophia Electric 91-03 300B
"I love the way Richard voiced the Sophia Electric 91-03, and I think he
truly achieved his goal of combining the best of vintage musicality with
modern sonics. In my system the Sophia Electric 91-03 300B integrated
amplifier has a warm, natural, colorful, and dynamic sound, which makes
music exciting and rewarding to listen to. The Sophia Electric 91-03 is very
evenly balanced top-to-bottom, with bass response that is tight, deep,
agile, and tuneful, and never overblown the way it is with some 300B
amplifiers, and it has highs that sound extended and silky smooth.
"Music lovers talk about how single ended triode (SET) amplifiers like the
Sophia Electric 91-03 excel in the midrange, and by doing so provide a more
direct and intense connection to the music. Over the years I have found the
praise of SETs magic midrange qualities to be largely true, and I have
really enjoyed listening to the SET amplifiers that have come my way.
"What sets the Sophia Electric 91-03 300B SET integrated amplifier apart
from all the other SETs I have listened to is that it extends that SET magic
midrange up into the highs and down into the lows, and at the same time that
it provides an intensely musical experience, it also provides exceptional
sonic performance. It is simply the best, most enjoyable, fun to listen to,
and exciting SET amplifier I have ever had in my system. As a bonus, the
price is very fair."
