Good North American made SETs are not all that common, let alone one made in Canada, and
removed for privacy welcomes Wolf Ear Audio into Canada's audio fraternity. The quality, design, finish, and "maturity" of this amp would suggest a fifth or sixth model to be produced, but a first? Wow! Bingo! Andrew at Wolf Ear got it right first product out! But the biggest news isn't the original design or custom built chassis, but it's the sound. Highly resolved, lightning fast, and with an ethereal 3D, highly focused soundstage were one can "see" the performance through their ears.
Such a thing is accomplished by leaving all frills out and concentrating on the one thing that counts, the sound. Simple, but very solid construction, simple point to point wired circuitry, and small production runs make this amp affordable. They are hand built with no compromise in quality. Iron takes up most of the interior of the chassis, but because it's so well ventilated, the amp runs quite cool.
This amp will work best with quality high efficiency speakers which will no doubt make them sound incredible, because the amps dynamics can then flow. If you haven't heard a flea powered SET with it's simple circuitry on a set of well designed efficient single driver speakers, you're missing what may be the pinnacle of home audio.
