    The $122K was the sum of the list prices, including the $44K list for the Boulder 2060, which he got 'pre-owned' for $14K. So even if he paid list for everything else, the real total was under $100K.

    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.
