macpaulster , you just copy/paste it and the site autoparses the link. Or you can use the "HTTP" button on the reply screen.

Don't get me wrong, btw. At it's price, which is about the same for an assembled board as for the aforementioned kit, the quality is fantastic. And definately my current recommendation for anyone that can't or won't dabble into soldering themselves.

I've only had a t-amp (and later a modded t-amp) a super t-amp and a charlize besides the amp6b, so no. But both the charlize and the amp6b uses 2020s and I think there's a definate difference between the two. And I prefer the amp6b.

Default HLLY T Amp products, Bass Amp

Post #5 I'm glad to hear you received your amp and liked it. I recently had a bad experience with HLLY. They're fairly new and untested buty I wanted their AM47 bass amp board and it was only 30Eur so I went ahead and ordered it. 3 weeks later and I had no board so I sent them an email that went unanswered. A week later I sent another email, still no response. Fortunately I paid by paypal so was able to open a dispute and within 12hrs I got an apology saying it must have been lost in the post and a full refund. I'm not really sure what to make of this. I'm not convinced they tried to rip me off, but its also not really acceptable to ignore 2 emails from a customer who hasn't received their goods. I do want the board though (products look to be of excellent quality from the pics), and having read this I may now give them another chance and order again. After all if the same happens I should be able to claim again!
valleyman,

Sorry to hear you had a questionable interaction with HLLY. Shipping from Hong Kong can be iffy so it may not be their fault. Currently, I am importing their products for sale, mostly in the U.S. The products are a fantastic value. They really want to produce high quality items and beat their competition on quality. I'm convinced that they are successful based on my experience. I don't currently carry the Bass Amp on my site, but I'm curious about it and would like to order a few units for testing and sale. If you truly want one, I can certainly get one to you reliably, via USPS to the UK. The price would be similar to what you'd pay direct. Let me know if I can help.

I ordered one, got it quickly, it looked and sounded pretty good for about an hour, suddenly there was no output and a burnt capacitor smell coming out of the case.

They replied quickly enough, but I have to pay shipping to get it replaced. Since shipping is 30% of the cost of the unit, I'm not really okay with this. I didn't abuse it in any way. They were the ones who sent the defective unit. It may be a language issue, but he didn't seem terribly surprised that I'd received a defective unit.

The sound is very lively, though not very dynamic, but my speakers aren't very efficient and I was running it as an integrated amp. I've found that my sonic impact super T and regular needed a pre-amp.

I'll be interested to see how the shipping, return, etc. go. It could just be a bad sample, something that happens now and then.

Hi Neomatth,

I really enjoyed your review about the HLLY 20! I am also really starting to enjoy my HLLY 20. I have been spending most of my time with my HLLY 90! The HLLY 90 made a big impression on me. I have now been spending more time with the HLLY 20. I started the other thread about the HLLY 20, and also started a thread about the HLLY 90. Check them out.

I saw you wanted more people to review the HLLY 20, here is my latest post to my HLLY 20 thread (below). I would be interested in your impressions of the HLLY 90. It is a wonderful amp!

Best regards,

Tripath07


I've got great news to report about the HLLY 20. I've spent many hours now listening to it with the 12v 7ah battery and I am happy to report it is sounding great!

A couple of days ago I purchased a couple of larger clamps to clamp the contacts from the power cable to the battery. The ones I had were small and weak. They helped to make a much tighter connection to the battery terminals. That helped a little! Then yesterday I was listening to a CD enjoying the warmer deeper soundstage, but still missing some of the Samsungs dynamics and detail. It was then that I decided to go to the back of the HLLY and rotate the power cable connector that goes into the HLLY about a 1/4 turn. Hmmm I noticed a change in the sound. I got a little more dynamics and detail! One more little turn is where I left it, it's sounding great, it's sounding very nice!

The HLLY 20 is also now much better matched to my Paradigm Monitor 3's v3 in the master bedroom system than they were to my Pioneer HPM 900's. The HLLY 90 is happy driving them.

The HLLY 20 is now sounding GREAT! ONE thing that has stood out with both the HLLY 20, and the HLLY 90 is they LOVE to be turned UP LOUD. They both sound great cranked up!
