Am wondering..what u mean with reference grade?
In my dictionary thats TOTL stuff...
But i have a feeling reference grade in ur book means something different...but i old-fashioned in my ways and believes..so i must be missing something i guess.
For that amount of money u can get urself an amp hand built by ur own specs, no matter how crazy!
I did it and i couldnt be happier, so if u do have 5000usd for amp/dac to spend..check a certain blue circle company..u wont regret it
