    This was slightly more informative than a Z reviews video.

    I see Marv is training his offspring to do manual labour at an early age. Well done! Now all he needs is an uncle who owns a restaurant so he can spend his summers doing dishes, and don't forget to practice piano in the evening.

    BTW, this has serious potential. Nothing at all like the Sheng Ya. Letting it warm up. There are tubes inside. It's a hybrid.

    Interested to hear what you think. I have been thinking about trying their sv-237 integrated for a while.

    Going to leave it on until tomorrow. Tubes will take 15-30 minutes. Solid-state devices probably another week.

    You're probably talking about the cat but I'm talking about creating a thread with no impressions.

    I still think it deserves another day or two. I've gathered some thoughts, jotted down some notes, and I kind of get an idea where this is going.

    For now, this we what we have for impressions. (Vincent SP-331 vs. Sheng Ya SP-993)

    This seems pretty definitive for me.

    I thought we are going to "try" to be nice this year, instead of a being a bunch of trolls. I figured someone would take @Wilson's harmeless compliment and turn it into this.

    Thanks! It was actually his idea. He does his homework and chores quickly, do I let him do what he wants to do, which is watch YouTube videos on dudes who capture big alligator turtles and dudes like do game commentary for Clash of Clans. He wants to be a YouTube personality, so I figured I'd give him a start.

    I find it interesting that when stuff sounds better, it just sounds better. It doesn't take an audiophile.

    P.S.

    Will do a full review on the Vincent. It's very good. Not Hegel good, but worth the money.

    Children are the most honest critics. Runs in the family in this case.

    Kids always make me hopeful for our future :)
