Harmonicat II TPA3110 (Sold to Mike D. of Washington D.C.)



There are audiophiles that share the opinion that the 3 watt TPA3110 is at the top of the ladder in terms of sound quality among the TPA series of amplifiers.  Many can't take advantage of the sonics of this amplifier due to it's low power output, but for those that only need one watt or two, the TPA3110 is preferred by some owners over multi-thousand dollar tube amplifiers due to it's ultra-quiet background, while still retaining triode like sonic qualities.
