Proprius mono amplifiers (one pair)


"For an output rating of only 25 watts per channel and being so small in stature I couldn't believe how loud and good these little amps sounded. My resident Triangle Titus EZ's are relatively efficient but there was loads of power in reserve and I never felt the amps would run out of steam in my average sized living room. . . The sound is very clean, smooth but detailed and three dimensional." 1

"Having 'downgraded' from some serious valve amplication costing several times the asking price, the GSP combo didn't sound out-of-their-depth at all. No transistor amp (and only a couple of valve amps) has ever matched the sheer musicality and transparency of the sublime Yamamoto but the Majestic/ Proprius were not a million miles behind, sounding unusually sweet and open for a transistor design..." 2

"This is about music; this is real class Ab - not D or T; this is about ease of listening, and an amazingly good amount of audio level despite the low power numbers; all those sudden bursts that many an amp needs hundreds of Watts in reserve to deliver with any meaning, are catered for with comfort here, even when I connected them to my 83dB sensitivity 15ohm LS3/5a speakers. . . This had grunt, with an exceptionally dynamic and energetic soundstage from the deepest lows to the tizzling tops. . . That this 21st Century £1299 all-in package can sound as good as it does is indicative of Slee's compulsion with creating the very best. . . This is real class in a pint pot, and well worth the price." 3
