I have discovered with my Manley Snappers monoblocks, a wonderful company that is not known enough, according to its quality.
Manley builds terrific products, which just sound superb, at a great price.
Their customer service is top notch and makes you feel that you're part of the family. Very different from the customer service that we can get these days from big and old HiFi companies....
For a while I have considered a Jumbo Shrimp preamp for my second system, to go with the Snappers, but the Mc C48 flexibility, although costing much more, was finally more attractive. With a tighter budget, I would have choosen the Jumbo Shrimp without any hesitation.
Long Life to Manley Labs !
