    No one has replied, so I'll chime in with slightly related info. Music Angel is similar IMO to several other Chinese brands. There might even just be a few that OEM stuff for others to sell.....

    This amp looks kind of like the Baby amp that was a somewhat hit here in the US, and was cloned/copied by several Chinese makers (or again, by one and maybe OEM'd).

    I have owned a couple Chinese amps (headphone amps from Jasmine and Bada), and I know someone who had an integrated from AudioRomy.

    My impression was a good deal for the money, but 1) parts quality not always the best, and 2) tube upgrades always beneficial, almost needed.

    Still, for the price of admission plus some not-too-expensive tubes, it could make a nice front end to a pair of WAF-1's indeed.

    My 2 cents; again, no DIRECT experience to this brand or model, though.
    What if the Hokey-Pokey really IS what it's all about?!

    Kinky Tom!

        no experience with the amp/seller/brand and I'm not really familiar with the tubes used so not going to be much help for the amp. It does look nice though! :thumbsup:

        The blue glow is just from a blue LED under the tube that shines up. Here's a couple pics of amps I've built with 'blue' tubes






        on a side note, I picked up one of these little guys a month or so ago and am very impressed.

        The stock tubes aren't great, but a couple nice pairs of matched NOS tubes and it really opens up. I'm currently running a pair of grey glass RCA 6v6GT and Tung-sol 6au6, but I'm trying several different combinations at the moment. I still haven't found a nice pair of Mullard 6au6 for a reasonable price... But anyway, highly recommended. for the price you can't go wrong, I sold a gizmo for this little guy. :D

            I really like them. being single driver they do have some limitations, but as long as you don't crank them (mine are on my desk right in front of me so not an issue) they sound fantastic
