Mon Amour MonAmour
« on: July 04, 2021, 10:27:37 AM »
The MonAmour's are now in my system breaking in.

First they are absolutely beautiful amps.  I love the look with the transformer covers and powder coated top plate!

More importantly how do they sound?  They sound great!  Compared to my Kaiju it is more detailed and little more to my liking. I have always been a fan of the flea power amps, makes me want to build another pair of 45 amps. The Bass is perfectly adequate and it pairs well with the Jagers.

The only mods I made while building it was using Vcap Cu Teflon capacitor as the coupling capacitor and Jantzen Audio Superior Z Capacitor for the parafeed Capacitor.  Both of these barely fit.

Bottlehead, thanks again for another great amp.

Your signature color bases with the alternating plate colors makes for a fine looking setup.

Jonathan,

I don't know where Debra got those, but Etsy offers a lot of this type of stuff...you may want to check it out.
