1. Upgraded to 91-03 driver circuit.
2. New signature 91-01 output transformer is an upgrade from the standard 91-01 output transformer. It uses year 2010’s 91-05 model winding method for spacious sound stage and vintage WE iron core material for vintage WE sound.
3. Fancy new aluminum chassis: 6.5mm=1/4 inch thick aluminum plates and blocks. This solid chassis gives further solid sonic foundation. The fancy internal layout structure is an upgrade for sonic performance too.

Positive Feedback Review: "The Sophia Electric Model 91-01 300B mono amps are audiophile dream amps, they have great sonics top to bottom, bass articulation that is the best I've heard, and the SE 91-01 nails all of the nerdy audiophile things like soundstaging, imaging, sense of space, and transparency in such a beguiling way that even music lovers that don't give a rat's ass about audiophile-type sonics will appreciate its prowess.
I recommend these amps heartily, and I'd give them my normal 'two thumbs up' endorsement, but that just wouldn't capture what these Sophia Electric Model 91-01 300B mono amps are capable of, so I've invented a new rating, the 'two hard nipples up' recommendation, which is the highest award I've given out to date." ––– Jeff Day
