    I think the older stuff had a different sound. The new 1160, 2160 is anything but that. The build quality is second to none. The company has been amazing to deal with. Love dealing direct with a first class U.S. manufacturer. Theyíve given me all of Florida. No other Bolder dealers.

    Re: Boulder arrives at Suncoast Audio

    I recently auditioned the 866 Integrated - quite a new one too. It was almost warm in its presentation. It was smooth textural and had loads of power. I was very impressed - as i too recall the older Boulder sound that was a little clinical.

    Additionally i was at a friends house who has some 3000 components hooked up to M Projects........ fabulous sound

    Yes, maybe the 101ís. The Xtremes need four amps or two stereo amps.

    Yes, they say itís so popular and they canít keep up. About a 4-6 week wait. The new integrated too.

    I will tell you guys, this 2160/1110 is absolutely incredible. Here are my thoughts so far:


    1. Ridiculous sound staging.
    2. Acoustic instruments are Renderer in a three dimensional beautiful manner.
    3. Top end is smooth.
    4. Bass is powerful
    5. Wonderful decay on instruments
    6. This amp DOES NOT sound at all like solid state. Itís beautiful class A all the way.
    7. This amp is so musically engaging. It's hard to explain just how musical this amp is.
    8. Dynamic. This amp is snappy. Toe tapping.
    9. This amp creates a soundscape that puts you in the front row with the music just surrounding you.
    10. Wonderful bass control
    11. This amp out D'ags the D'ag.
    12. Instruments just hang in the air

    Yowza!
    Congrats Mike!

    I've never seriously looked at the specs before.
    Monster amps indeed!
    If you tell me that they can be brutal and subtle at the same time, they must be winners.

    Great gear. You'll do very well with it. Once again, a phenomenal match with Magico. I've heard it a few times at Goodwin's. Are you dropping any lines to make room???

    Hi Mike,

    As I know you are a VAC dealer, I am curious to hear how you like pairing the VAC pre-amps with the Boulder amps. In my system I use a VAC Statement Preamp paired with Boulder 2160 driving Focal Stella EVO. I find this combination to be pure magic, the VAC front end pairs incredibly well with the muscle of the boulder pure class A.

    The care placed on the power plugs is one of those signs.
    They clearly do not leave a weak point like that to chance, hoping that the customer may - or may not- buy a Furutech ncf booster...

    Suncoast Audio is officially the heaviest hitter of high end audio. Constantly redefining itself to continue to thrive in this tough business.

    M3s getting air time with Boulder combo, Mike?

    Thanks for the kind comments. I work very hard to curate the best audio products from around the globe and Boulder and Magico are definitely tops!

    The M3ís were sold just recently. I had them for four years! I have M2ís, A3ís, A5ís (coming), S3 Mk2, etc. But yes, M2ís will definitely be getting a test on the big Boulder.

    How does it compare with Mephisto? They both are class A SS amps. Curious to know the difference between them.

    Not really. The massive heat sinks do a pretty good job. The amp has been on and playing since day one and itís warm to the touch.

    Boulder on some models use to have a thermal cutout circuit that would mute the amplifier when the transistor cases reach 85įC - 185F. They had a red indicator light come on when this happened. Not sure if this is still a fact though ....

    Very cool Mike! I didnít see them in the store yesterday. My focus was on the Extremes.

    I really like the sculpture and chiseled look of the new Boulders.

    Boulder at RMAF last year had a fantastic room!
