    I own an Ultima 5… fast, powerful and an absolute surgeon with complex music. Nothing loses its place or gets obscured.

    Re: Chord amps

    I also have an interest in Chord amps, it’s a bit beyond my comfort zone and with a few notable exceptions most amps I demo definitely fall into the law of diminishing returns category. The hegel H590 kef blade combo sound great, but somebody had to post how the Blade/Chord combo were made for each other. Sigh
    KEF Blade, Mc-611's, C49 rega jupiter, roon nucleus, revox tuner. Meridian dsp8000 se upgrade, meridian 218 zone controller VA Beethoven's, Hegel h360.
