    D’Agostino M400 monos are absolutely wonderful ...

    Thank you Jock for an unbelievably smooth transaction and insane deal.

    My amps arrived yesterday safe and sound. Thank goodness for those flight cases. They even have wheels built in, love that.

    Once warmed up and settled in, they are stunning, sweet, delicate, ballsy, 3D and sooo musical.

    Absolutely best solid state amps so far.

    Studio 2 are playing first and the D’Agostino drives them with ease.

    A true homerun for me.

    Thank you so very much Jock.

    Congratulations Joe! The M400s are the real deal.

    Great for you Joe that Jock let them go at a such a terrific price. They must not even have to work too hard to drive the Studios.

    Enjoy!

    Congrats on your new amps and glad they're hitting your sweet spot! Am I correct to assume you're driving them with the Luxman C-900u which came so highly recommended? Enjoy the tunes Joe!

    Thank you guys.

    Yes the C900u seems like a great combo. I forgot about the XLR pin configuration but didn’t seem to notice anything off. I’m using my Modwright Sony 5400 sacd player. I have not used that thing in ages. Sounds pretty damn good. I’ll have to experiment some more, but so far I’m ecstatic.

    Enjoy the amps Joe. A Music First on them would be stunning.

    Ha! Damn, I hope not. They really are killer.

    Hmmm, I’ll check out the Music First, again. All reviews and user reports are great.
