    I don’t mean to be hard on the M1.1’s. They are excellent sounding amps. Not my favorite but really fine. I just feel for six figures that the monoblocks should have zero compromises and be built from the ground up as mono amps. Audionet Heisenberg, dartZeel NHB-468, Nagra HD and my amps, Vandersteen M7-HPA, are just a few examples.

    Seriously, I donít think CH will design M1.1 mono mode with compromise. Most people use them in mono mode. Extra modes of operations should be considered as plus rather than minus IMO. I have compared M1 to one of the amps mentioned in your post in my own system for a month. I can say M1 is up to the the level. Actually, Iím getting a pair of M1.1 to replace my current amp.
