Audio Nirvana 300B SET amp.

Can anyone tell me anything about the Audio nirvana 300B SET amp? I was looking at their speakers and came across their amp. I know this means nothing about the sound, but it looks like a pretty hefty unit. And the pictures of the insides look like a nice neat assembly job. Can't actually see any of the solder joints, but the wiring looks very neat. Does anyone know how they sound? The price is right. And the shipping is free. So if anyone owns one or at least have heard one. What did you think? Thank you all.
 
I’m sorry you never received a reply to this post. Had I seen it last year I would’ve replied because that’s when I purchased the Audio Nirvana 300 B amplifier. I’ve owned a number of audio amplifiers over the years many have been big names, some were kits, some were tube amps and some were class A mosfet amps. The AN 300B is part of my current listening room system which consists of a Kuzma turntable and tonearm combo with a Lyre cartridge, as Pass DIY Pearl Two phono stage, and a pair of DIY Cornscala 3 way Speakers. The point of the build up is to say, WOW! This is hands down the sweetest stereo amplifier I’ve heard, period. Audio Nirvana is an appropriate name and is the feeling I get when listening. Truly remarkable. I did use a different tube compliment than what comes with, as I installed KRAudio 300B balloons, and swapped out the rectifier and 6SN7 and 6SL7. I’m not sure the tube swapping was necessary but I had them on had from my other 300B amplifiers. If you are still considering a 300B SET, this is a choice you won’t regret. The price for the build and sound quality is ridiculously low. Also of importance, David Dicks, of Common Sense Audio, is a very helpful guy and a pleasure to chat with.

There is a very positive review here:
Glow in the Dark Audio - Audio Nirvana Single Ended 300B
I think the only prob of this amp is the 300B is not a cheap tube, so if you can afford buy this tube its a great amp to own, others 300B amps are more expensive.

AN 300B

Hello,

I am thinking of purchasing this amp for my system.

Are you still found of the amp?

How is the inside point to point wiring? Well done?

Thanks very much,
Mike
