I have Proprius mono blocks at my home from the loaner program.
I picked them up today so I have not yet been able to spend much time listening.
But two things are already evident.
First: They have a very natural sound. Especially obvious when listening to acoustics music I think.
Second: For the price being asked, this must be among the best amplifiers possible to buy. I do not say it is the best amplifier in the world, but it is without doubt one of the best for the money. And you probably need to spend a lot more money if you want something significant better. Whatever better means. I am not certain you can find something that make you happier.

Couldn't agree more. I have owned a Proprius now for about 5 days and it is remarkably good. In depth impressions to follow, but for now I'll just say the Slee way appears to be the right way. Yet again!!!

They are tremendous amplifiers, nice little boxes with a great big sound.

Hey everyone,

I just got a new pair of Proprius amps two days ago and I thought I'd post here, in a few words, my first impressions. I'm using them without any preamp but connected straight to my Reflex M and they're driving a pair of QUAD ESL-57's.

Straight out of the box they sounded rather good to me, but even so I must admit there wasn't an immediate wow effect. Luckily I have some previous experience from getting a brand new Solo UL and a Reflex M, both of which I clearly recall changing quite dramatically in sound through the first few weeks, and especially so in the first few days - from being rather average sounding one day to sounding jaw-droppingly musical and emotive the next. Swinging back and forth in this way for a few weeks or fortnights even.
Well the Proprius sure is no different in this department it seems as today, after being powered up for nearly 48 hours and played for perhaps 6-7 out of those, they all of a sudden went from just sounding "good" to sounding (repeating myself here) jaw-droppingly musical and emotive. Suddenly they were warm and sweet, yet tight with effortless control of bass and with highs as clear as cool spring water. Anyone who's tried a GSP phono stage for the first time will know what I mean.

Now I know they will likely swing back to sounding rather less than their best before long, only to come right back again (and so forth). But knowing I'll be living with this kind of high fidelity music in my home permanently once the burn in period has finished is, simply put making me one very happy music lover!
I'll probably be posting more as they progress in their burn in and as I get better aquainted with them.

Wow - I'd have never thought about pairing the Proprius with Quad electrostatics! Shocked

No surprise they sound good though . . . and as you say better things to come as well. Thumbs Up

It sounds like they have brought the best out of the ESL-57's. You already know how they will change over the next week or so by just being left on so I wish you very happy listening Johan.
