    This amp has been burning in since we got it. Sat down and listened this morning. WOW. I love this amp. The soundstage after 250+ hours now has really opened up. So much more punch and dynamics over the old m900u. Still the same great midrange...

    Hi Jack

    I need a recommendation.
    I want to buy an amp for my spatial m3 turbo s
    Based on your experience. The stereo or mono north nc500 is there the best candidate ?
    There are some choices like Ps audio stellar 300 ,Odyssey kismet, Red Dragon s500.

    My pream is a Doge 8 lp* gain 10v* impedance output* 600 ohm


    Thank you
    Sebastien
