Aura would have sold more of those if they hadn't be so far up their own a**hole in calling it the SE -x
Leave out the minus, just call it SEX, but then that would have been a misdescription cos it's deffo not sexy.
Does it sound any good or is it just another euro-shed manufacturer surviving on pseudoscience claptrap and Jimmy Hughes reviews?
Ok, now, <sips tea> my Mission 753 always ate most mid range amps for breakfast - '25 to 150w' amplifiers recommended. These were a big seller in their day and for good reason, if you are into electronic music, they are perfect. Now ramblings aside, there was a magazine article many moons ago that found the original 753 worked better with amplifiers of 150 to 300 watts...
The Aura that I have is around 90w (from memory) and takes my Missions, puts them over its knee and spanks them.
So in short,m it wasnt hype, I'd have this over an Audiolab 8000A any day etc etc...
