Had several people asking for more information on John Wood Audio. Surprised me really because I thought virtually all forum readers would have heard about John Wood Audio.
At a risk of sounding like a fanboy I think I can honestly say that most people who have owned John Wood's amps reckon they are the best they have heard/owned. They are hand built, including the transformers, by John in Nottingham. Build quality is exemplary although the looks might be a tad funactional. You will note for example on the power amps how the transformers are set at 90 degrees to maximise performance. What you cant see is the other 2 transformers inside each power amp and the super neat and tidy wiring.
Forum seaches, Wam, Aos, PfM etc will bring up several rave reviews on the power amps.
