The Sterling MK1 is our entry level amplifier, affordable and yet “Punches way above its weight” The Mk1 Sterling does just that, by  producing fast, tight and transparent transients.  This amp produces a level of performance that is radically superior to current designs. 

All Audion amplifiers, the MK1 included are hand built by a single Artisan from start to finish using carefully selected and matched components. All are capable of working with a wide range of loudspeakers.

The Audion Sterling EL34 Anniversary Edition is a warm and dimensional-sounding amplifier with a potent lower midrange that does justice to the power range of an orchestra. It sang right out of the box and never misbehaved. Kudos to the Audion team for breathing new life into the venerable EL34 pentode. In my estimation, the Sterling EL34 represents a gift to music lovers everywhere. Highly recommended.

"Very round, smooth and toasty," but "well capable of enough resolution to easily distinguish Red Book CDs from their SACD cousins"; the midrange is "smooth and luxurious," but the bass has "neither the detailed control nor the slam of any solid-state integrated in [the Sterling Stereo EL34's] price range" -- no surprise., pulvinar dapibus leo. "Fully capable of refined tube splendor that's unanticipated at its price level."

The sound was a contrast, detailed and extremely musical. There was no slowness and desire to lull the listener, for which I dislike for a directly heated triode single end.

Every Sterling feels like it's punching well above its weight. So Good I bought one myself. More seasoned audiophiles will know that good amplification – no matter the topology – has no sound of its own. Don’t expect the thick syrup or golden hues of sub-$1000 Chinese units. There is no sickly/heavy sauce here. Neither is there porridge bass. Who said tubes are no hopeless below the waist? (Fools!) This Audion is the healthiest of extra virgin olive oil: light, transparent, clean. And fast. It is unburdened by ponderous, labouring low frequencies or musical weight gain. Its talents lie in 1. the ability to drive a wide range of loudspeakers and 2. the beautification of music. Each combination a winner.
