the comments on this thread by few folks also lines up with what fremor says in his review
for example michael fremor believes CH is warm where as dartzeel is bright, lean and analytical in. a good way.
may be this is what people are interpreting as warm or soft or laid back etc etc.
can anybody help in characterizing the the spec, design and sonic differences between A1.5 vs M1.1
on paper both look identical, with M1.1 having a more powerful transformer (1800 vs 2200 VA) and may be a few more transistors at the output stage.
iam sure it would be more than that but can...
