    That is the only downside to the old amps. They run very hot as they work in Class A (just like the big Pass monos or the Lamms 1.2R).

    This amp looks like a steam train ... kind of weird. I bet many will miss the gigantic meter present on the 611 / 1.25kW.

    True, I do like how the new amps run a lot cooler. They won’t melt you out of the room. A necessary thing here in Florida.

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.

    Mike, 12mths ago new mk2 (with copper heatsinks + upgrades) was €30000, the one in pics was €16000. I'd happily ask the world distributor if you wish. I have no financial interest at all in this. Met him 12ths ago in Paris, we got chatting. Lovely man, Italian, prefers speaking English to French even though he lives in Paris. Hah!
