RE: audio manufacturers pay for reviews

I have tried the latest nuforce and they were sterile, bright, and just non-musical. I have yet to herd a musical class D amp. This is the future, but it is not ready for prime time now. Tubes, tubes, tubes. If it doesn't have lethal voltage, it can't make music. Go with a good tube amp. I have used the ARC D300 SS amp and it was good, Electrocompaniet, but it was not good as tubes. The best so far has been the Quicksilver Silver monos and the V4's. I also compared the V4's to the Bryston 7BST's and the Quickies had better bass, midrange, and treble, not even close. The Bryston are overdamped. More is not better, it just leans the bass out. Try an ARC VT100 I,II, III or the VS110, or other similar amp. The ARC work well with Maggies. 100wpc is plenty. don't get lost in the wpc game. More power is not always better. Remember you have to double the power to go up 3db, a click on the attenuator...not much. Thus, 200wpc is only slightly louder than 100wpc, and twice the tubes and heat.
