Hello Terry,

This might be duplicate e-mail. So far my ears are happy. W4S claims "tube like sound." A nagging thought of what this amp would
sound like with a tube preamp keeps intruding. If my wife doesn't
see the credit card statement I might have to indulge this whimsy.

Peace,

PB-

The ICE amps are of great interest to this fella!

An M80 mated with that beast should do the trick quite nicely.

Very, very interested in this "new" technology.

Tube-like sound without all the hassle of tubes.

Love the energy efficiency also. Go green and pump out power. Win win.

I'm considering the 500 watt myself.

Too many cool things on my to-get-list dag nabbit!

Check out the Virtue Audio stuff for the bargain versions kids!

I added a SVS-PC12NSD, 350 watt to the system. Yeah there was
more bass, but kinda boomy, and not all that integrated into
the overall sound. I recently exchanged the sub for a SVS-PC-
Ultra, a 500 watt sub with the extra features of an eq and
sub-sonic filter. Prior to it arriving I gave serious consid-
eration to admitting I had a problem and enrolling in a 13
step rehab program for impulsive chronic upgraditis. When I
plugged in the new new sub this Saturday, OMG, my system sounded
terrific. The bass blended perfectly. The overall dynamics
were finally over the hurdle. My hurdle has always been that
my ear picks up the systems inefficiencies. Not enough, or tight
enough, or blended enough bass. Not enough on the high end to
give cymbals the shimmer of live music. Not enough detail etc.
etc. Finally, the combo of the W4S-STI-1000, M80V2s, and
the SVS Ultra, gave my critical mind a rest. End result, the
emotional connection of getting into the music. I was ready to
pull the trigger on some pricey Salk Speakers, HT2-TL, or HT3,
if I didn't clear the hurdle. Not now, with the right electronics
the M80V2s can deliver a great 2.1 channel experience.

Peace,

PB

Glad you got your system just right, photonblur.

Now, sit back and ENJOY it! \:D
