This most likely will be Mr Park’s masterpiece, these KT 170 tubes will create quite a stir once they receive more exposure with much lower colouration, they are a complete revelation in my 25th anniversary.

The centre transformer is huge!
What a Beauty, it will drive anything.!

During the last three weeks, an Allnic T-2000 30th Anniversary integrated amplifier, featuring the newly popular Tung-Sol KT170 and Allnic’s 61-step Constant Impedance Attenuator, arrived here, the first in N. America. Using a complete Allnic ZL cable loom, I connected the T-2000 to the earlier 2021 released H-5500 phono stage, and my turntable bearing an Allnic Rose cartridge, creating our first ever impromptu all-Allnic “budget” system. Albeit having a small footprint proportionate to the room it is in, this combo creates imaging that transcends all physical boundaries and is fully immersive and palpable. Additionally, what really strikes me overall is the complete clarity, without coloration, that the system provides, maintaining the stunning and non-fatiguing neutrality for which Allnic is renowned. These pieces, as combined here, have commanded my attention with their sheer musicality and the sense of presence and reality they create, increasing my respect for the ingenuity of their designer, KS Park.

This setup is now under review with Marc Philips of Part-Time Audiophile.

Thats certainly a whopping transformer, your listening impressions certainly reflect mine using KT 170 in the 25th anniversary, however hard to imagine the 30th will be probably be more so as it is designed for the KT 170. Iam sure this raises the bar at this price point, “viva la tubes”.Mr Park’s masterpiece.

With ten or so units in N. America and many, many more sold in Europe, the feedback has been universally positive and supports the reviews published below. Incredible dynamics, imaging, and holography. Even though the power transformer is the largest I have witnessed, the break-in process was unexpectedly quick. While this amp continues to mature it was nowhere near the break-in time of the M-2500 monoblocks which I estimate at 400 hours. Whatever innovative circuitry the 30th Anniversary has, that magic sauce certainly piqued my interest. Performance, price, simplicity, it should be considered!

Anyone interested in this unit, here is a list of dealers worldwide - https://allnicaudio.com/distributors/

I have at one time or another chatted with most and all of them are wonderful to work with.

I do not see Allnic Audio listed on their website as either a vendor or manufacturer. Maybe one of the Allnic distributors or dealer over the pond can chime in.

Allnic is well represented in Germany however:

Can you not offer a home demo/trial Ketcham ?

Unfortunately not at this time. There has be huge pressure in the industry overall because of increased costs of manufacturing, shortage of parts and unprecedented high rates associated with freight.. In addition the risk is just too great. Although the amp is double boxed, with internal wood support with handles - the shipping weight is just under 100 lbs. Freight with discount across country is approaching $500 per direction. Also note freight of this type of item from Factory to my customer is now $1200. Add in risk of damage because of its weight, it just isn’t viable. Adjustments were made to keep Allnic profitable without sacrificing quality and not increasing pricing. Not increasing pricing is essential with all that is in the world today.

To be clear, I am not speaking for dealers in other parts of the world. Their cost to import are high and likely higher than mine. We would agree that there are exceptions - local customers and for Kevalin Audio the western states where freight is less and handling is less risk.

I would also note that special pricing of the L-6500 and A-2000 ‘se’ offered only through David Beetles Hammertone Audio distribution which includes Kevalin Audio and Corby’s Audio is time limited because of these industry pressures. I anticipate they will fall inline with worldwide pricing by midsummer.

Yes I understand the logistics very well. Iam sure if you had a potential customer say within 150 miles you would offer a demo for a few hours would you not ?

Absolutely. 150 miles is considered local. I prefer trials to be longer than a few hours.
