    Re: Any Jeff Rowland owners?

    Based on Guido's earlier comments I will try to audition one of Jeff's new Continuum S2 integrateds. While I did not get on with the earlier Continuum C-500 integrated, technology continues to advance and class D has moved beyond fit for use as a sub-woofer amplifier only IMHO.

    Nonetheless, I still think it is fair to say that the majority of audiophiles have greater confidence in class A / AB bias for amplification.

    Hi Mike Ritmo, if your priority is ultimate authority and musical refinement, M825 is the ticket... But if monoblocks fit your system layout better, M725 is still a very fine amp.

    I think my last response explained it quite clearly. I'm ready to move on.

    Re: Any Jeff Rowland owners?

    ICE Power modules (Class D audio amplifiers) used now by several amplifier's manufacturers, including high-end Anthem audio manufacturer (Anthem Statement M1 - monoblock power amplifier), are B&O's development babies.

    This is strictly as pure info from B&O's own company's website, and nothing more to do with some of JR's amps than any related implementation that it has, or not: ICEpower ? Class D audio amplifiers ? Our History

    And some additional information which some members might find educational: Attack of the Clone Amplifiers | Audioholics

    - The Anthem (ex Sonic Frontiers) Statement M1 ($7,000/pair) is a Class-D amplifier.

    - The Mark Levinson No.53 Reference (monoblock amp - $50,000/pair) is a Class-I (IPT - Interleaved Power Technology) amplifier.

    Re: Any Jeff Rowland owners?

    Hi Davey, I thank you for the kind invite... If everything goes according to my evil skeemings, I might be able to travel to San Diego to present a paper at a conference in Mid March... In which case I accept and look very much forward... It will be my first opportunity of listening to the legendary M8!

    Concerning current cabling adventures... I am working on some absolutely fascinating review projects... Hence my public silence on the subject. Unless I suffer from a sudden attack of Procrastinitis Furiosa, I will post an article on a complete loom of [redacted] by the end of February at the latest.

    Re: Any Jeff Rowland owners?

    Hi Ralph (Kiwi), if you audition Continuum S2, do give it enough time in your system.... I am talking about several hundred hours of handling audio signals. Dealers are way too quick to declare that their gear is fully broken in. I have not tried CS2 in my system, but I suspect that 800 hours of break-in may not be an overestimate.
