    I have the 1160 here. The 1161 is a slightly smaller version. Excellent amp, just donít hear the 2160, youíll be ruined.

    Itís like a Porsche Carrera S; a great car until you drive the Turbo S. Both excellent but the Turbo S is fabulous.

    I love the Porsche analogy as I am looking for a 911 myself. As much as a Turbo S is stupendous but a regular 997 C2S/C4S is what hits the spot for me.

    We've got it here for demo in Stockholm, Sweden.

    What would you like to know, and which speakers are you planning to combine it with potentially?

    Depends where you live. In a warm climate, I would prefer the C2S. Both excellent cars.

    I have the Kharma S7S that I potentially would like to pair the Boulder 1161 with.

    Re: Boulder 1161

    Thx for the offer but if I get a C2S, it has to be the 992. Altho the new vette is a steal.

    Back to Boulder....
