Thanks for the welcome guys.
The amp I purchased is about 1 yo and I think it was used for about 8 months before he downsized but I am not sure. It was obviously well cared for by a guy who values his gear, so I have no worries about it.
I just love builders like Klaus who obviously care about their product, have great build for the money, stand behind the product and participate in a forum answering questions. I am happy I have a chance to own some of his gear
I am moving my Luxman amp to a different system. It is class a and with the amount of time I was using it my electric bill was going crazy, both from the amp draw and my A/C dealing with the heat
I will always love my Luxman gear but this amp has made the move very easy to do. I am way surprised at how well it sounds compared to the Luxman it almost makes me mad LOL. The only thing the Kismet lacks is meters
I love meters haha
