Small But Mighty - SMSL VMV A1 Class A Integrated Amp

You wouldn't be an audiophile if you didn't have at least some curiosity about class A amplifiers. The downside is that they're usually massive thanks to big heatsinks, very expensive, and very heavy. In this video I'll share my thoughts on a class A integrated amp that will give you a serious case of cognitive dissonance. Enter the $660 SMSL VMV A1 coming in at a svelte 4.4 lbs while pumping out up to 15 watts from a CNC machined aluminum chassis that fits in the palm of your hand. I'll also compare it to my reference McIntosh MA8900 and the recent Pass ACA class A monoblocks I built.
