    Re: Boulder arrives at Suncoast Audio

    I recently auditioned the 866 Integrated - quite a new one too. It was almost warm in its presentation. It was smooth textural and had loads of power. I was very impressed - as i too recall the older Boulder sound that was a little clinical.

    Additionally i was at a friends house who has some 3000 components hooked up to M Projects........ fabulous sound

    Boulder Boner!

    The integrated looks much better in your photos and I hear good things about it, and itís not a crazy price IMO

    Yes, maybe the 101ís. The Xtremes need four amps or two stereo amps.

    Also, I am really impressed with what I call my baby Boulder 508 phono amp - no options, fully balanced -$5K

    Yes, they say itís so popular and they canít keep up. About a 4-6 week wait. The new integrated too.

    I will tell you guys, this 2160/1110 is absolutely incredible. Here are my thoughts so far:


    1. Ridiculous sound staging.
    2. Acoustic instruments are Renderer in a three dimensional beautiful manner.
    3. Top end is smooth.
    4. Bass is powerful
    5. Wonderful decay on instruments
    6. This amp DOES NOT sound at all like solid state. Itís beautiful class A all the way.
    7. This amp is so musically engaging. It's hard to explain just how musical this amp is.
    8. Dynamic. This amp is snappy. Toe tapping.
    9. This amp creates a soundscape that puts you in the front row with the music just surrounding you.
    10. Wonderful bass control
    11. This amp out D'ags the D'ag.
    12. Instruments just hang in the air
