    I’ve always been a CJ fan. Tried to love ARC but never really loved their sound. I have fond memories of specific VTL pieces that were absolutely wonderful.

    It’s CJ that captures my attention and I’d love to hear the new ART300 and ART27A.

    I would think either amp would be right up your alley; perfect for pairing with the GAT.
