Bottom Line:   
THIS AMPLIFIER IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!

IT HAS THE CRYSTAL CLEAR SOUND OF AN AUDIO RESEARCH TUBE AMPLIFIER COMBINED WITH THE DYNAMICS AND BASS DEFINITION OF THE LAST KRELL MONOBLOCKS I LISTENED TO!

AT $3500, THIS AMPLIFIER IS CAPABLE OF EMBARRASSING MOST $10,000 AMPS ON THE MARKET (AT LEAST WITH MY VANDERSTEEN 3A'S (WITH SOME SPEAKERS, MAYBE YOU WOULD WANT THE 4B...).

THIS IS THE LATEST ITERATION OF THE 3B; THERE WAS THE 3B, THEN THE MORE REFINED ST, THEN THE MORE REFINED SST, AND NOW THE SST-2, WHICH HAS BEEN IN PRODUCTION ABOUT 6 MONTHS.

I HAVE HEARD A LOT OF AMPLIFIERS, AND HAVE NEVER HEARD A BETTER ONE AT ANY PRICE.

I AM USING IT WITH AN AYRE C5-XE SACD PLAYER ($6000), AN AUDIO RESEARCH LS-26 PREAMP ($6000),
AND THE VANDERSTEEN 3A SPEAKERS, AND THE SYSTEM'S SOUND IS TO DIE FOR NOW; THIS AMP WAS THE MISSING LINK NEEDED TO BRING THE REST OF THE EQUIPMENT TO ITS FULL POTENTIAL.

I THNK ONE WOULD HAVE TO SPEND A MINIMUM OF $250,000 TO IMPROVE WHAT I AM HEARING IN MY SOUND ROOM NOW.

BEG, BORROW, OR STEAL ONE OF THESE AMPLIFIERS BEFORE THE REVIEWS COME OUT AND THEY DOUBLE THE PRICE!
