So I finally got my new Taurus MKII amp to go with my Vega DAC which I got last month.
This is the first time I've had the chance to use my LCD-3's in balanced mode. All I can say is "incredible", "stunning", "awesome".
A couple of weeks ago, I had almost decided to buy the Cavalli Audio LAu, even though it was well over my budget.
I'm sure I would have loved it, but I have absolutely no regrets buying the Taurus now. I managed to get an ex-demo unit at almost 1/2 price, so compared to the LAu, I have spent less than a 1/3 of what the LAu would have cost me. And I'm loving it.
