    AVshowreports has done couple of videos on them. I didn't meant to absolutely judge the sound quality but give some idea. Since all his videos are taken by the same camera, you can get a "relative" measure using a good quality headphone. Believe me, I have the same speakers at home as what they pair in the shows but the level of refinement with the Triop Corp is exceptional.

    Just giving you a hard time. If you read that thread about, "should you comment if yu haven't heard the gear" you'd understand. There's a bit of a tangent on those who listen to gear via YouTube.

    I greatly admire the Triode amps, and have also heard how great the big ones sound at shows. The issue is that anything that would really work for my friend is simply too expensive for his budget.

    Re: Your Integrated Tube Amp Recommendations and Expertise requested

    I have never owned a Tube amp. Pre, Power or Integrated. I had a Octave V110 on loan for a while. It sounded good, not better then my SS integrated amp. But still good.

    What I like about Octave is that it doesn't have a overly tube sound.

    I always recommend the Devialet Expert Pro Integrated amplifiers, they make my Bowers and wilkins sound like something out of this world. I bought them a few months ago from the Devialet NYC soho store and got them hooked up to my 802's. They even do at-home and store demonstrations if you call their Soho location

    Agree, to me the Octave had some tube presence with control of SS, it's even better with the upgraded power supply.

    I haven't heard your brand of amp, it must be good though.
