Listening pleasure restored with this quality amp

 

I bought this amp as neither my new TV nor my Blu-Ray player would connect with my old Denon so I had lost the facility of listening to TV, DVD soundtracks, radio and music through my Mission speakers. I am so pleased with the new amp. It was so simple...

Excellent product for money

 

I bought this based on reviews and am not disappointed. Easy set up and good sound. Bought in conjunction with CD player and both very compatible. Capable of multi use and overall good piece of kit for the money. Adam and Simon were great help.
