The latest and best sounding version of Knut Cornils' soulshine so far is the brand new Valvet soulshine II.
Hand crafted near Hamburg in Germany, the soulshine II is a line-stage using ECC802S and ECC99 tubes and a new external solid state dual mono power supply.
The soulshine II shows exceptional detail, plasticity and sound stage. Everything is played on a black/still background. The listener hears no tube noise, but many tube virtues. Voices really have body, strings have the right fluidity, and an electric guitar sounds just like it should. Especially the harmony between silence and dynamics captivates the listener right away. The price is US $8,450.-CLICK HERE to check it out or call for a listening appointment.
