From the UA Website:
The 4110 provides four channels of premium Class A, all discrete amplification and is the first analog product from Universal Audio to break from our vintage roots and offer a world-class tool of "ultra-fidelity" and still provide musical and warm euphonics.
Sounds like a new design to me. I haven't really heard many impressions of these boxes, or much buzz about them at all except when they were first announced. The competition is pretty stiff at this price point. Anyone have any first hand experience?
