    I have both in the store. The Diablo 300 has that big HUGE soundstage, tremendous bass and seamlessly limitless power on tap. The PA3100HV is breathtakingly beautiful in design, it has a very “tube like” sound. Buttery smooth on top.

    They are, to me, the two best solid state integrated’s I’ve ever had. Just fabulous. Really, both are in a league on their own.

    No I haven't. I believe the module is $2,000+. Don't see the need for it at this point.

    Mike,

    How does T+A integrated compare to the separates (amp + pre)?

    Thanks!

    I cannot answer for sure but as the specs are the same I would believe the difference is marginal. The main advantage with separates is that you can, funds permitting off course, run the 2 off power sections in mono and get 60W in pure class A as opposed to the 30W class A in the Integrated.

    soastrup, I can't seem to find the Class A information anywhere in print. Where might I find it? Additionally, what cabling are you using?? Thanks!!!

    Penthouse-D,
    The information regarding the Class A output is not available anywhere on the T+A site so I asked the T+A guy at the Warsaw show a few weeks ago. He said it was somewhere between 30 and 40 Watts. In my system it probably never leaves class A.

    I use cables from QED and Audioquest.

    Same here. 30-40 watts max. I would think if the amp is truly class a- a/b, they would promote it. Maybe Mike has additional information. Thanks again.
