    It would be nice if someone could do a shootout between Pilium Alexander-Hecules combo and Audionet Stern-Heisenberg combo.

    Re: Pilium Audio

    Besides looks & power, AudioNet Heisenberg is 66kg while Pilium Hercules is 107kg.
    It all comes down to your sound preference in the end.

    It would be most likely very difficult to a find a dealer that carries both of these brands to make a shootout.

    I apologize, as I wasn’t suggesting that you would travel from France to NY ... I was merely attempting to demonstrate the level of quality of Pilium – that being the intended pairing with a $750,000 speaker – IMO speaks highly of the amp … Sorry to give any other impression.
    Sincerely,

    Re: Pilium Audio

    I read the review, I don’t know, I wasn’t feeling it. It was sort of saying “it’s good, but not as good as...”

    I’ll take gryphon or Boulder all day long myself.
