    Yowza!
    Congrats Mike!

    I've never seriously looked at the specs before.
    Monster amps indeed!
    If you tell me that they can be brutal and subtle at the same time, they must be winners.

    Great gear. You'll do very well with it. Once again, a phenomenal match with Magico. I've heard it a few times at Goodwin's. Are you dropping any lines to make room???

    Hi Mike,

    As I know you are a VAC dealer, I am curious to hear how you like pairing the VAC pre-amps with the Boulder amps. In my system I use a VAC Statement Preamp paired with Boulder 2160 driving Focal Stella EVO. I find this combination to be pure magic, the VAC front end pairs incredibly well with the muscle of the boulder pure class A.

    Some details tell me when the manufacturer knows what he is doing.
    The care placed on the power plugs is one of those signs.
    They clearly do not leave a weak point like that to chance, hoping that the customer may - or may not- buy a Furutech ncf booster...

    Suncoast Audio is officially the heaviest hitter of high end audio. Constantly redefining itself to continue to thrive in this tough business.

    M3s getting air time with Boulder combo, Mike?

    Thanks for the kind comments. I work very hard to curate the best audio products from around the globe and Boulder and Magico are definitely tops!

    The M3ís were sold just recently. I had them for four years! I have M2ís, A3ís, A5ís (coming), S3 Mk2, etc. But yes, M2ís will definitely be getting a test on the big Boulder.
