I hooked them up on 3/28 to verify full functionality. They come with a matched quad of Genalex Gold Lion KT-88s and a matched quad of Mullard Platinum Factory Matched QUAD EL-34 tubes. Subjective evaluation of sound: If you are looking for warm tube sounding amplifiers, these are worth a look/listen.
With Gold Lion KT-88s and Klipsch Heresy iii speakers, these deliver a rich, textured sound without fatigue. I found the Mullard EL-34s to be more detailed and also a bit bright, granted I did not burn them in. These monos are a great candidate for vinyl sources and/or digital sources in need of some post-DAC analog love. The Mini-Mite exemplifies Quicksilver's design philosophy: simplicity, musicality, reliability and affordability. Matched pairs of EL34, KT90, KT88, KT77, KT66, 6550 or 6L6 output tubes can be used with no adjustments, and the output tubes are self-biasing.
The power supply has over 100 joules of storage and the power cord now has an IEC connector. The Mini-Mites provide the famous Quicksilver midrange in a lower power package.
