Speaking of pretty amps, I happened across these Canadian built amps at a local shop just before Christmas:

Surprised I'd never heard of them before - still living in an audio bubble I guess. The sales dude gave me a quick demo hooked up to B&W 800 Diamond speakers. Hi-def female singer jazz track (forget her name) singing "Let it rain". The result was mesmerizing. I actually need to go back and get the name so I can buy the disk. Easily audition material.

Cheers from a freezing Chicago!
