    I ended up with Esotericís S-02 stereo amp, had Luxman M900U.

    In my opinion a better match with my First Soundís pre amp.

    I'm still using constellation which is excellent but still wondering if Rowland 735 or Esoteric would be better

    The impedance level on the Esoteric was a much better fit for FS amp. Opened the soundstage, better bass etc.

    You have a First Sound preamp? That's cool, I do, too. They're amazing preamps...Emmanuel is a true artisan. 👍
