I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: my ears are big fugly muffles that can barely tell the difference between a bassoon and a bass. It’s a little like telling the difference between a good cigar and a great cigar. That being said, I’ve rarely come across the foaming-at-the-mouth-it’s-so-great kind of reviews this little amp is getting. The fuss is over the Sonic Impact T-Amp, a $30 15-Watt amplifier that “easily outperforms amplifiers that cost 100 times more.”
It started out as a gimmick, cheap battery-powered amp and has turned into an overnight sensation, shipping thousands of units. From the review
this has been the most thrilling and incredible experience I’ve had with a component in, say, 25 years of HiFi listening. This website has existed since 1995, I’ve reviewed hundreds of HiFi components, inexpensive and ridiculously overpriced ones. I never – repeat – NEVER came across such a stunning piece of gear in all of these years.
Right. It almost makes me want to buy one and see what the fuss is all about.
Read the Google Cache of the review (BoingBoing broke the site, I guess). It’s quite entertaining to see such enthusiasm, really.
