Maybe I don't have such luck with Mr. Ray Samuel's amps. The only amp that seemed nice was the Predator. I personally found the Shadow overhyped, the Tomahawk seemed to sound better.
One of these days I'll pertain to my curiosity and get a Hornet when I have more money, burn the big caps in until I can hear something.

Reviews would stay as reviews - a person's opinion. Nothing more, nothing less.
They're meant to be used more of a "rule of a thumb" than a benchmark.
For one, I don't trust Skylab's review of the Voyager, because he never gave the Contour a chance. In fact I'm rather glad I didn't fall to "head-fi peer pressure" that way, just because all the big names have done reviews and some amps didn't go well.

I also think there are better people able to answer the hardware and electronic aspects of quality amps than myself. Perhaps some in the Sound science forum would do better or those that went to battle on dfkt's Hifiman 800 thread. That was great stuff!
