    Hi Joe,

    I also have a LM-219IA. Mine is paired with Acoustic Zen Crescendo speakers 90db efficient. I've not listened to music in such a deeply satisfying way in some time. Suffice to say I'm very happy with it, but I wander sometimes if I could benefit from a little extra wattage and too have looked into the Mastersound Evolution 845.

    Are te you still using the Line Magnetic? I love it to, but have a wandering eye as well.

    I was just watching some videos of Diapason Italia Adamantes and Astera. One vid had the Astera mated with a Mastersound unit, not sure which one. That promted me to find the Evolution 845 which does look like a nice unit. I also suppose it couples well with Diapason??

    This is old but I ran across it while tracking down reviews. The Evolution was recently redesigned and improved upon. This is my main demo amplifier and it is intoxicating.
