AGD Tempo in the house

It is very interesting to spend time with amps.  You go to shows or even go to someone's house and listen to and amp and because it isn't on your gear and in your environment, it sounds good but it is insanely difficult to judge vs other gear.  

So AGD is a brand I had been flirting with and finally a customer asked for a demo so I put in my order and a few days later the Tempo arrived.  I dropped in into my system and all I can say is WOW.  It has all the grunt required to drive my Vivids.  Is warm and sweet with an extremely wide sound stage. 

Even fresh out of the flight case, (no box here) it didn't sound digital at all.  This sounds closer to Class A to me than Class D.  I have not heard a different GaN at this point but I am fascinated by this and how good it sounds compared to other Class Ds and even Class ABs.  

The other surprising part is this unit is about 1/3 the size of a normal component. I know I am a hair late to the game with GaN but damn, is it ever too late to celebrate a product.   


@milpai to each his own regarding respect. TBH, I’m not sure where all of this stuff originated. No doubt folks have their own opinions about these things. I just try to be fair in calling balls and strikes. 

@lula I can't answer your question directly (comparing the Audion to the Tempo) but this might help: I have two Tempos. I am currently using one channel each, not bridged, as mono blocks. There is a notable difference between this setup and using a single Tempo as a stereo amp. You might pose your question to Alberto. I think you will get a straight answer. 

Please let me clear this up.  I bought 2 Tempo’s from Mike with a 30 day trial in Nov of 2022. I ran them bridged   They sounded good but did not have the grunt and stage as Odyssey Kismet reference monos so I sent them back to Mike within two weeks. Mike told me he could not refund my money for 60 days as he had 100k worth of equipment he had to pay for. The day after shipping I fell off my roof and suffered a spiral fracture of my femur. 8 days in the hospital and 19 in rehab. I contacted Mike and told him I can’t wait around for my money. He sent me 2500 of the 9k. I personally called Alberto and told him how Mike was jacking me around and a piss poor representative of his products. He personally told me he was removing Mike from his dealer because of his poor customer service. Mike must have worked it out with Alberto but is probably on double secret probation with him. 
Mike paid me in installments and I even bought a Puritan PSM 156 from him just to help him get me paid off. Certainly didn’t need it at the time but it worked out. He made his final payment on Feb 5 .
