Seems like these two amps trade bass for smoothness. If that's the necessary compromise to go balanced from one of the Lite...

    Basic economics lesson for those railing against so called HF-1 "profiteering": Artificial price ceilings establish a huge gap between the demand for a good and the supply, with the demand far outstripping the supply. As Grawk notes in an earlier post, if buyers artifically colluded to set a...
