    My fave reviewer is Wojech Pacula, he has an unerring talent for getting to the heart of how something sounds.
    Agreed about Roy Gregory and his writing style...but Srajan at 6 moons makes Roy seem clear as day. Alan has, IMO, no clue about what sounds good or not. Wojeich seems to understand things well but I have a hard time taking the advice from a reviewer who uses Soulution amps with Harbeth speakers...just ain't a realistic sound to me... This makes his opinions of far less usefulness than they would seem on the surface.

    Lol, solution with harbeth? Had no idea.
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    Sounds like a very interesting combo to say the least. Could work out in a good way. The soulution 'technical' sound may balance out the harbeth's sweetness ?
    You can never have enough power !!

    Custom speaker in progress

    Can help with recomendations for hotels and good food in munich !

    +1 on both your comments.
    Maybe Dire Straits should do another version of Money For Nothing.
