I Marcus, thanks for the reply yes this integrated look very reasonably priced for a well known brand like Allnic.I've got the Allnic T-2000 25th for demonstration here since about a year back.
If you're looking for a well built, highly transparent and dynamic tube amp that drives most speakers on the market with ease, this is a SOTA contender at a very reasonable price (approx. €10.000 in Europe). I can't recommend it enough.

I had the standard T2000 for 8 yrs then changed to the T2000 anniversary, This plays completely in a different league than my previous one, like a complete different model! much greater dynamics, focus and sheer musical flow/ timbre. Volume level around 10 o'clock with my 93db speakers preferring pentode mode. I did not think it could be done especially at the price point, sounds best straight from the wall rather than my external balanced transformer, reacts kindly to footers taking away a mild darkness and opening up the soundscape also roll them 6485 to 6 ah6 and fuse. Balanced input also is best for my allnic phono.
Now I wonder if those new KT170 tubes will be compatible!
The T-2000 25h Anniversary - has a 8 Ohm 4 Ohm switch - set to 4 Ohms and the KT150 will drive these speakers without issue. There is no parasitical crosstalk between the windings (4 Ohm/8 Ohm) since they both are used simultaneously.
I actually adore the Kron tube sound but have not heard anything about a KT170 - I would love to hear more about them.
Another aspect of the Allnic T-2000, you can adjust them later and add in a preamp by bypassing the internal preamp. This adds future versatility and allows comparing to the internal preamp circuitry.
When will the KT170 be available ?The T-2000 comes with the KT150 stock as they were determined to sound better than both the KT120 and KT88. If the KT170 proves reliable, they will be considered. I have no reference to voice an opinion on the KT170 at this time. Given the trend, the extra power reserve would improve dynamics, speed and punch at the minimum.
