Talk about leading the pack! The Steelhead is regarded as one of the world’s best phono preamps. It lets you “dial-in” the perfect load for your moving magnet and moving coil cartridges. Finally, the freedom you need to stop thinking about which phono preamp works best with your latest cartridge. It may also be the only preamp you will ever need if you use vinyl and cd as your only sources. If for some reason you need more inputs the Skipjack below is the perfect affordable solution.    Retail Price:  $9899


Following on the heels of the Steelhead, the Chinook offers the same clean and quiet audio circuit. It has less inputs but much of the same flexibility for setting the perfect parameters for you cartridge including both moving magnet and moving coil.  Once set up you can simply enjoy your music. The price is amazing for a product of this calibre.    Retail Price:  $2899



Always fresh, never frozen! (they said that, I didn’t)

The Manley Snapper, EveAnna’s personal choice to drive her Tannoys and ATC’s. Using parallel push-pull EL-34’s and providing 100 watts of power; it seems to be the perfect mono-block amplifier for most of today’s speakers, including electrostatics.  The 19 layer output transformers are wound at Manley’s Chino, CA factory, as are all the output transformers used in their amplifiers.

The short, simple, minimalist signal path delivers high dynamic

range with prodigious output drive capability. Its focus is on high bandwidth, low noise, modest local negative feedback and low distortion - voiced for a clean musical performance. The White Follower stage using 5670 dual triodes effortlessly drives the passive interstage volume control. Quick, alive, transparent with good rhythm and extension. RF Remora Remote control included. You need to hear it to appreciate it.

MAHI Monoblocks

The chassis design is like a mini-Snapper. And of course they come standard as a pair so you get.... "Mahi-Mahi". I believe the MANLEY MAHI's give a lot of value for an affordable price and I think you will be surprised at just how big these little guys sound. The EL84 tubes are tight, fast, and deep. 20 watts in triode and 40 watts in Ultralinear Mode.

Retail Price: $5999

I have every product you see on my website available for demo purposes.  Please call and arrange for an in-home trial.  You’ll be pleased with what you hear and just as importantly, should you decide Manley is what you are looking for, you will be spending your dollars supporting an American company.
