To each his own my friend. Not saying you are wrong or right, just stating my opinion on the amps. It's all a matter of choice and I'm not arguing that. I'm sure you see where I am coming from with the amp.
The Auditor is pretty bad with low impedance gear and ortho's. Even the easy to power LCD-2 sounds bad on it. I always found it to be better with high impedance gear. To my ears it's the best amp out there for what I need.
The V200 is a lot like the LF in that it can drive almost anything with ease, say except maybe the K1000. Both are very powerful amps and are both excellent sounding. I just can't have anymore amp :(
Since we are talking about the LF, have you tried a K1000 on it? Also how do ortho's fair on it. When I had the test unit I did not have any ortho's on hand, except for my YH-2, which sounded great on it.
Oh crap I derailed the thread...
Well then, either one of us need to have their hearing checked. I thought except for the sexy gauges, the Phonitor was meh with pretty much everything (except for strangely enough the K701) and downright horrible with low impedance headphones and orthos. The LF trounced it in every category (except for those sexy gauges) to my ears.
Now which one is right? I'd say we both are...and we each own the right amp for ourselves.
