i know ... i have no doubt you are correct.
However we must remember that DIY carries the highest existing bias factor and most products are only scrutinized by their creators in their particular and unique systems. But yes, if I had a double audiophile life the second one would follow the DIY route.

Hi there. I have been contemplating trying the Jbl 4367 and was even planning a visit to Dallasjustice (Michael) to hear them in action which never materialized due to my busy schedule. I pair of M2s with the high power Crown IT-12000HD's showed up on Audiogon for a fair price, and I would consider scooping them up unheard and try them in my room. I am quite attached to my PS audio monos poweramps, and I would hate to have to part with them to drive the M2s with the Crowns (hence my preference for the JBL 4367), and I also don't like the idea of doing a A/D - D/A conversion in the amp. Any thoughts? I am currently using the Evolution Acoustics MM3. Like them a lot, but I want to downsize because of future move to smaller premises - I won't be able to take the giant EAs with me.
I have and absolutely LOVE my 4367's. You will actually need 4 channels of amplification for the M2's. I have used many amps and also use the BHK 300 monos, among others, on the 4367's and they are wonderful. The PS Audio amps are sleepers. Amazing for the money. The 4367's are so much easier to integrate in your room/home. As much as I love my Strads, the JBL's are receiving the majority of play time.
