That makes me think that EveAnna told me more than 6 months ago that she applied to become a member here. And finally it seems that she did not join. I wonder why.

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 !

Maybe Jeff....But the Snappers sounded so good with the C1000P that the temptation was too high to refuse a C48. I love Mc SS preamps.

Jeff,

I see that your Snappers are equipped with 6CA7 tubes. You should put El34 in those. I have both sets and the EL34 sound better.

Made in Chino, CA.
The "Chinook" is a "Hook" to grab new customers to the Chino's company ?

I have a set of EL34 just haven't got around to installing them....I also been chasing some very high dollar Tele, Mullards and Siemans 34's from a friend in Germany.....he is a collector for 40 years and doesn't sell but he does me favors and sends me nice stuff when he runs across them so I patiently wait!

There is a big customer base looking for killer sounding phono stages in the 2-3k price range so I think Manley is smart to fill this need, yes?
