5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one to buy...., 31 Dec. 2014
This 3118 based version of the SA36 is quite frankly brilliant...

This is better than the 2020 version of the SA36. I have both.....i bought the 2020 version first and it is a big step up from the Lepai 2020 and the smsl sa03 which i also bought. The 3118 version is as big a step up again. The bass is much more controlled and the soundstage is much clearer. You will need to make sure that you have a decent enough power supply. I bought my own which is 12v 5amp and it seems ok but other people suggest a switch mode power supply. I have read that 24v is better.

To put the quality of sound into context, i have scrapped my previous hifi system comprising expensive separates from the late 1990s which cost ~£1500 and was all what hifi winners...arcam etc...

I have set up a laptop based system using a muse mini dac and a pair of wharfedale 9.0 speakers (richersounds) and it sounds amazing. My only caveat is that it might not have the power for a large room (which mine isn't)...All in all a very cheap hifi.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it dies just reset it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had one of these for a couple of years and they do lock up occasionally but all you have to do is press the on off button for 10 secs and it resets....I rescued mine from the bin having read this....do get one , it is brilliantly designed, the sound is great and it has something lovable about it

5.0 out of 5 stars solid comfy chair, 22 Jan. 2014
Just finished building my chair which is a present for my partner.

Very happy with the finished chair which appears to be robust. The wood is a pretty decent hard wood

Will be painting with deck oil and should last a long time....

It is also very comfy

Great product and would have cost a lot more from a garden centre

5.0 out of 5 stars worked fine, 24 May 2013
Bought this power supply for my Lepai amplifier and it worked just fine providing the extra power the amp needed. Would recommend it for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars their 2nd best album..., 11 April 2013
This review is from: Strangeland (Audio CD)
Well it only took me 10 years to realise what a great band they are....it started when i bought hopes and fears which i have been toying with for ages.

It turned out to be in my top 5 albums of all time...just stunning.

I then started buying their back catalogue and was slightly disappointed.

However with this album they seem to have gone back to what was so good about hopes and fears.

There are couple of dodgy tracks but generally it is a great album for easy listening.

It's just a shame that even when they produce an album as fine as this it will always be compared to H and Fs which was just one of those magical creations which happen very rarely.

Nicely built and looks nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously good!, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well i received my amp having read all the reviews of Tripath amps...

It is far better than i even hoped....stunning!

I have an expensive system downstairs (£2K) and this amp is of that quality.

Having read the reviews i bought a 12v 5amp power supply (meant for an LCD monitor £10) for it which probably helps.
I bought a set of Wharfedale Diamonds for £50 which i have wall mounted (decent floor stands cost more than the speakers) and some good speaker cable. I also bought a Sweex external sound card for a tenner. I can now listen to internet sources and it is brilliant. I have a great hifi system for less than £100...genius.

The amp is smaller than i had imaged and does look at bit cheap...don't bother with the tone controls ruin the sound. I had bought a 4700uF capacitor to mod it as other sources had suggested but i'm not going to bother.

To sum up, probably the best bargain on the planet!

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed...., 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well i don't know what i expected but they only sound like a £30 set of speakers...not great just ok...which is a disappointment really. Wish i'd heard before buying.

Tried with my sandisk mp3 player and my laptop and was not that loud with either. I have had to hook them up to a CD player to get a reasonable sound level in my office...

I wish that i had bought either a lepai amp and cheap set of speakers or an intempo docking station which is currently £45 on Amazon...my partner got one of these and it is much better.

I've decided to save for something better....
