Damn, Niimbus is great but Enelum 23r is something else. With 1266 TC is heaven made combo...

Which is the better amp in your opinion generally speaking? They are both around the same price.

Is the US4 discontinued? Violectric.de and CMA have only the 5 series listed now.

Thanks
US5 Pro=US4+ with additional 4.4mm
US5 = same as above without reed relais volume control

The volume control is the only difference now
Ah yeah but they're 1000 euros more than the 4 series, so I'm priced out of this one. I would have been stretching it anyway, and I would have had to sell my V280 which I don't want to do. And, I want balanced input, it's kinda surprising the Nimbus don't have that.

It doesn't?
It does, but only if you don't get confused when you're looking at a bunch of Nimbus and Violectric amps at the same time.

Thank you. P.S. I still can't afford it unless I also got the price wrong :D

Have you considered the v550 as an option? It is a pretty stout unit itself. I am working Susvara off of it and although not "Holy Sh%#$t" level of performance, I'm still at wow this is some "Nice Sh%#$t" level of sataisfaction and running an Abyss 1266 Phi TC for over a month on audition, I had no issues and was definitely at "Holy Sh%#$t". D8000 Pro, LCD-5, Fostex TH9xx, Stellia - all lovely. TL;DR it could be worth a look.
