ive owned several "pretty darn good" amps over the last few years.
the final showdown was a freshly rebuilt and upgraded Cavalli stacker II (there are people who consider this one of the best amps around) vs the O2.... i kept the O2.
I dont plan on upgrading anything anymore unless something drastic happens in the world of audio.
maybe i'm just biased.. maybe everyone else is just biased... well... my bias is cheaper ;-)
Yes, yes and yes dammit. I'm sick of the hype. I just want something that performs adequately. Electrical engineering is an objective science. Music is the artform, so why is personal audio industry so incredibly convoluted and unfulfilling at times?
