    Re: Boulder arrives at Suncoast Audio

    Mike. I was wondering, what's the MSRP of the 1160?
    I heard this amp paired with the S7's and the M3's and was mightily impressed.

    Itís $28,000. Iíve been thinking how incredible that amp would be with S7ís myself.

    How does it compare with Mephisto? They both are class A SS amps. Curious to know the difference between them.

    Do they put off quite a bit of heat?

    Not really. The massive heat sinks do a pretty good job. The amp has been on and playing since day one and itís warm to the touch.

    Boulder on some models use to have a thermal cutout circuit that would mute the amplifier when the transistor cases reach 85įC - 185F. They had a red indicator light come on when this happened. Not sure if this is still a fact though ....

    Very cool Mike! I didnít see them in the store yesterday. My focus was on the Extremes.

    I really like the sculpture and chiseled look of the new Boulders.

    Iím trying to figure out how to restrain myself. Iím very happy with DíAgostino, real happy until I see Boulder.

    Boulder at RMAF last year had a fantastic room!

    Restrain Ed, restrain.
