    i cant comment on the bore3 nor about the mephisto. however on the alexia2 i have heard a lot of amps and the humboldt sounds way better than the momentum 400 with the hd pre. much better!

    probably a very nice system. if you buy new and if you have to add the cabling, racks etc you could end up towards the 300k line....ouch.
    in that league you might want to consider the nagra hd preamp as well.

    I would recommend trying to demo Vitus as well. I have the RI-101 paired with 02’s and it has got to be one of the best combinations I have heard in a long time. I imagine going up in the Vitus line would be even better.

    A precursor to Jonathan Valin’s (“JV’s) review is above.

    Robert Harley, the Editor of The Absolute Sound (TAS) reckons Jonathan is high-end audio’s finest writer. While I’m sure such a proclamation would rightly invite some pretty robust debate, what I can say is that I really do appreciate JV’s efforts in not just describing in detail how something sounds, but comparing the reviewed item to other similar products he has owned or reviewed, currently or in times past.

    Jonathan’s point of reference includes MBL’s $263,000 omnidirectional MBL 101 X-tremes which in his opinion turn water into wine and are the best loudspeakers he’s heard at his home —or anyplace else, for that matter. Having had the privilege of hearing MBL’s on several occasions, I find myself in total agreement – well, sans turning water in wine that is.

    So for JV to earlier write that the $120,000 Børresen Acoustics 05 speakers have a transient speed and fineness of detail like nothing else he’s heard from a cone loudspeaker, plus a wraparound sound-staging that is only rivalled by the big MBLs – really is kudos for Lars, Michael and the Borresen / Ansuz team.
