    Would love to hear the amps, but they're way outside my audio budget.

    These are among the best amps I've heard. Together with the Zanden 9600mk2 and the Octave Jubiliee amps.

    Yes, "effortless" performance from these amps is great, have listened many afternoons to this system, never failed to impress.

    Not sure if my post was confusing, but I am adding EMMLabs. Starting with a DV2 which already has the latest and greatest upgrade. The DA2 will get this upgrade this summer.
