After ten years of toiling in this financially ruinous upgrade cycle we call a hobby, I've decided that it's time to end the game for an extended period of time. I currently have my eyes on two amps, but I've hit a road block when comes to choosing between going to tube or solid state route. The amps in question are:
The Apex Pinnacle
The Cavalli Liquid Gold:
The amp will hopefully fill a dual role as a pre-amp in my speaker system. So can anyone that has had a chance to sample either or both of the amps provide any guidance/opinions?
