Great write up and story.
I am so glad you went all the way with the amp.
It is obvious that music and its enjoyment is important to you.
Could you please comment more on the sound with the amp .
I always wonder whether I am hearing everything that is on the disks we buy .
Thankfully, as I upgrade I hear more ( resolution ) and enjoy more ( saturation of sound / timbre ).
Every time I upgrade I tell my wife I am saving as I am rediscovering my music collection and not buying new music,
for a while.
Would love to hear the Vaughan.
PM me .
