Sounds like a tube amp. Bassy, controlled, musical and smooth. Definitely on the romantic side of sound. Great for vintage LPs and Jazz. Well balanced and powerful sound with slightly rolled treble. Perfect for hard rock and those terribly mastered recordings from 1970s and 1980. Classic and a keeper for sure.
