Use pair of Manley Snapper Mono Block power amplifiers in very good condition. Actual pictures of the amps shown.

100 Watts at full power across the entire frequency band from a quartet of EL34’s in a fully differential circuit topology is only achievable with an impressive 19-layer output transformer designed and wound by us here at Manley Labs, of course. Very cleverly, the Snapper’s unique fully balanced topology can be driven via the XLR inputs or by the unbalanced RCA’s with no sonic penalty either way. Until you have experienced these beauties, you have no idea how great these Snappers sound. Strong and natural, like real music.
