OK, hold up here. Are you seriously considering buying an amp that costs 1-2-3-4x the price of the speakers you're using with it? We're talking a tiny fraction of an improvement at best, particularly with M2s. If you were driving big towers, like M

I just gave the new Ben Howard CD a listen (his second). Hmm….. It’s OK, but not nearly as good as his first CD. If you like Ben Howard’s first CD, you’ll like the new one, but it just doesn’t have the same energy as his first CD. Recording wise, it’

Watched INCEPTION the other night. may have to watch it again (and again?) to figure out what level its at at any given point. Anyway, GREAT LFE - worth the rematch just to feel the floor move up and down again.

New oldish news. DTS has withdrawn from the application to be the new broadcast audio format. Now Dolby and MPH are the contenders. DTS will focus on premium cable shows (like HBO) and re-entering the cinema marketplace.

I would look for an older Sansui amp for now such as the au717 they can be had for bargans the sound from those au series is awesome and a lot of times you can pick them up cheap they have a very tube-like sound imo and very low thd numbers. I would
