That happens to be the review that got me to thinking about buying a Cherry Plus in the first place- Alvester mentions me in his half of the review
As a follow up to that article, I'd like to add some information. I just took my Cherry Plus over to Alvester's house last week to hear it in his system again, and we were both surprised at how much better it sounded than the one that he had for that review. As you can see in the review, everyone loved that amp. With mine, though, it was better all around, especially in the bass department.
I emailed Tommy about that, and the only thing we can figure out is: 1- I have a different transformer, 2- that first amp might not of had the mother board upgrades that I have, and 3- I have different binding posts. Mine are the all gold looking WBT's where as that review sample had the posts with the plastic covers.
Whatever the reason, I'm glad that I waited to get mine!
