    Phenomenal piece. Have a friend with one, really likes it. Too much for me. I'm still happy with my Sutherland PHD. Gonna need to buy 16 D-Cells here pretty quick. Off to the warehouse club.

    Hi,

    Used to own the Manley "The Purist" pre amp. Wish I never sold it. When I bought the Unison Research Performance I also listened to the Stingray. Very close call. In the end I went for the Unison , on another day who knows. So in answer to your question No I don't own one , but yes I have spent some time with one and its a very dynamic amp pure Manley.Liked it a lot.

    Easy does it

    Hi JohnMichael,

    Thanks, but in reality i find it incredibly sad that i have to fight so much to teach people about good music systems. Boy am i glad Mike Anderson took my advice and didnt follow the masses with some Axiom towers and some deal amp.

    It wouldn't be any fun if it was easy. I think of it this sick way.

    Say you have a kite. A nice wind comes along. The kite won't go up if you don't have a string attached pulling it down. You need that opposing force in order for it to work.

    I know it's sick. But that's life.
