Didn't really know what to expect from the Blue Aura V40 to be honest. Bought it on a bit of a whim (I've got a Rega Elicit and Elex in my other systems) and I have to say the little V40 more than holds its head up .... the overall sound quality is amazing.... especially given the price . Looks pretty good too. Credit to the guys and gals at Blue Aura. Proves you don't have to pay mega bucks to get awesome sound.
