    VERY nice looking amplifier. SET with power, that's nice.
    What are your initial impressions of it's sonic signature?
    As an added bonus you get to heat your audio room with it this winter.

    A trusty old Pioneer PD-65 as a Transport, A MicroRendui, a Merrill Heirloom T.T. as sources. A Lampizator DAC to PAD Cables to a SP-14 Tubed PreAmp, Coincident Frankenstein 300B monoblocks, & or Valvet E-2, Fusion speaker cables, AudioKinesis Zephryn 46 Speakers. pair Rythmik F-12 subs, EP2050, DCCA Furutech and Kaplan Power cables, APC power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines. DIY corner traps and Acoustic Geometry Curves for room treatment.

    Very cool. It's integrated? Will you drive it external or use the internal volume.

    This amp is not the integrated. It's the Diana Forte power amp.

    It doesn't matter what system this amp is in, ... it is the best sounding amp I have had the pleasure of ever. Either owning, which I do or listening. As soon as I heard this I knew I am done with Soulution. The immediacy, prat, timing & absolute seperation is so scary as you sit there & bath in it. I haven't once thought about the tone or pitch after 3 listening sessions. Every time I have worried about the neighbors. Joe, I promise, this is the shizz....

    So you bought the amp pre amp and DAC? I so want a SET amp. I wish I could play in that League. I probably have to buy a Decwear.

    Let us know how it sounds. It would also be interesting what it's like with that DartZeel fronting it
