    You are in for a real treat.

    I have an I880 set up in my office driving a pair of Strata Minis. They beautifully complement each other.

    Before the I880 (which matches cosmetically with the Piano Black Mini) I used a Melody SP3. The I880 offers more of everything.

    Looking forward to your comments.

    Gotta share the joy.

    I know everybody is awaiting a full review of this amp, but till the official report comes in, and since I have been listening to mine for better part of a year now, I would be happy to give you a one sentence review.

    It sounds WONDERFUL!

    I have tube envy for sure... Shocked

    Like a car that looks fast standing still, the melody amps look like they sound great even when they aren't glowing.

    I too am looking forward to your impressions Robert.

    Have fun!
