This is exactly the same as Yamaha CA-V2

Without loudness there is lack of bass. But loudness is strange. It adds also trebles. Sound is very detailed but bright. Works amazingly on less bright speakers as a mordaunt short for example. Not for Focal or BW.

re: CA-510

O my god! I bought this on gumtree for £50 include postage. BUT it is breathtaking amp.
EDIT: Review after half year: It is best amplifier i heard yet. But it is very bright. It sounds epic on mordaunt short speakers but i have upgraded to focal chorus and is not very listenable :(. Now i have it in bedroom on MS and using different on main speakers. I miss yamaha details but, trebles was cutting my ears also not much bass.
