I wIll be very interested to hear your comments about SP1000 AMP + VC. Indeed, I have SP1000 and just received my verite Closed, and.... obviously the Verite C is underpowered by the SP1000 Alone (volume level is OK, but sound is congested and soundstage colapsed ! So... I am hesitating between getting the SP1000AMp or "upgrading" to SP2000.... but I understood that SP2000 is less powerful than SP1000 + SP1000 AMP. is it correct ?
