Very nice Tori3!

How do you like that Kingko amp?

Appreciate the compliments, guys. The Kingko is a great little amp. I bought this amp direct from the designer/owner, King, prior to a US dealer being identified. With shipping and currency exchange I was right around $830. With the most recent version, Kingko KA-101 Pro, plus the US dealer it’s going for an introductory special of $1100 (I think). I’d be curious to know where the price eventually lands. IMO it pushes way above its weight class with its versatility, fit and finish, and sound it produces.

For some history, I actually cancelled my order of a Decware Select Zen Triode that I had been waiting for, for the Kingko. Fortunately I haven’t had any regrets, but I’m still intrigued by what I’ll find with a small SET amp matched with the Omegas. At the end of the day and to answer your question more precisely about the Kingko, this small PP matches great and still surprises me.

In an ideal world in the future I’d love to have a small SET housed directly next to the Kingko on that credenza - how cool would that be!?

I think well implemented EL84 amps, either PP or SE, are a great choice for Omegas!
