Break-In:
The Sutherland 20/20 does get to sounding better with break in. Right out the box, the sound can be not so impressive - dull, lifeless. After just an hour or so, the sound will open up and you will get a sense of its talents. The Sutherland 20/20 gets subtly better with more use!!!

Quick Set-Up:
Remove cover. Set gain and loading for each channel with movable shunts. It is OK to change settings with power applied - JUST MAKE SURE to turn down volume control while changing. Plug in power supplies to each channel. Power jack on each circuit board is located at the front. The unit will be muted for about 30 seconds after power is applied. It takes a long time for charge to travel thru all the filtering and ramp up the operating voltage.

Product Reviews:
"...listening, of course, is the ultimate proof of any component's worth. When people ask me whether I prefer tube or solid-state designs, I typically reply that I don't care if a component is powered by jellybeans as long as it sounds good. And the 20/20 most certainly does." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, September 2011, Issue 215

"Indeed, if one were to describe any character beyond the word "natural" to the 20/20's overall nature I would call it beautiful. The 20/20 is consistently so." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, September 2011, Issue 215

"...the sheer beauty of the 20/20, its amazing instrumental separation, and wide-open staging are wonderful things. ...rarely do I have the thrillingly eerie feeling of stepping into a recorded space the way 20/20 delivers it. In this regard it ranks among the finest at any price point." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, September 2011, Issue 215

"...the 20/20 persuades the listener in a very subtle, almost subliminal way, of the 'rightness' of the sound emanating from the speakers, I felt it was well balanced, with a tight and seemingly accurate description of the sounds relayed through it, and an almost hedonistic delight in that hard-to-define essence of music... I would certainly put this high on the auditions list if you're looking for a flexible and musical phono stage." - Tony Bolton, Hi-Fi World, October 2010
