    Heard these amps driving the Kharma DB-9S today at Mike’s. It was some of the best sound I have ever heard. They gave up very little to the much more expensive Boulder 2160.

    Ooh very interesting option. Looks like a negotiation with my wife is in order for more real estate some time in the future.
