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

    Mike replied to a thread Boulder 866 in Boulder Amplifiers
    Very different. The Boulder 866 sounds like a class A amp. Rich, warm, musical. The Diablo 300 has a big bold sound, with thunderous monoblock bass and grip and a huge soundstage. I was talking to a customer this morning who was debating between...

    Like with anything, you can always cut corners and get the cost down, but in doing so, you will cut performance. The X260.8/XP22 outperform the INT250 by a fair margin. I think as good as the INT250 is, the separates just bring much more to the...

    It has a Roon module in the DAC. Thatís how we are using it. I know there is a lot of talk about the cables, but to be honest, this system went from great to ďout of this worldĒ when we put in the full Alpha V2 loom. We had in there previous...
