I have reasons not to chase this amp: it's too big for my office, costs too much, and doesn't have a balanced output. It really isn't for me.I have posted stuff all over the place and its a wonderful amp.
Its also a world class preamp...
Class A all the time, its on all the time here except when we leave for several days.
IMO its design is very, very special...
Its not cheap but its not going to fly off the desk in a stiff breeze either!!
...which doesn't stop me from wishing I could hear it. I have a thing for really good solid state.
