    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 Marc,
    Joeind told me you are selling the ARC Ref5SE. By any chance is it still a available. I recently purchase Joes Lampizator 211's and I'm liking for a nice balanced preamp to be their mate.
    All the best,
