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

    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...

    A blind buy yes, but a safe buy in my opinion. What speakers are you planning on using with either the Luxman or Accuphase?

    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
