Bottom Line:   
For retail of $14,500 this amp is a steal when comparing to the Linn Klimax at $19,000. The things that the Rowland amps do better far out weighs what Linns do better for the price difference. If cost was no object I may have a tough decision, but with the cost difference, it is a "NO BRAINER". The Rowland Amps are extreme in every sense of the word, and I have to say that it is an engineering accomplishment using the Switch mode power supply technologyto its fullest potential. There are also technical advantages to Rowlands deployment of Switch Mode power supply technology versus what Linn does (i.e. use of Power Correction Factor Technology to further pre condition the line voltage before it hits the power supplies, and also the use of 20 amp IEC connectors which provide much better AC Connection. I would urge anyone who is in the market for a referance amps to try the Rowland's as well as the Linn's. Depending on your tase, you will find what you are looking for in either of these amps. It is however very important to use the right front ends and cabling to really appreciate these amps.
