Bottom Line:   
Here is a most excellent amp. It truly combines solid state power with refinement. 175 watts per channel. Has biwired posts in back. Has RCA inputs, balanced XLR inputs as well as having the option of getting two of these and running them at 500 watts as a fully balanced monoblock!

Bottom Line:   
What I own here is the Sonogy Cantata, used it for 3 years, never felt the need to replace it.

Non feedback design makes the midrange glows with intimacy and smoothness. Strong bottom and quick highs made this amp exciting to listen to. I partner this fellow with a Audio Research LS8 tube pre and link it to a Dynaudio Contour 3.0 speakers. Power is of abundant and the combo can handle subtle guitar strings as well as major drums interplay with equal poise and confidence.

Stereo imaging is spot on and soundstage is very well defined. Partner it wisely and you are in for a treat....

Bottom Line:   
This amp is a real winer. It has a very strong buttom end with a smooth and detailed midrange and silky highs that extend to beond audiability. Mine also has dual internal power supplys for the capability to drive hard speaker loads. At 175 watts rms, it is conservatively rated.
It is the best solid state amp I have heard myself and in my opinion, I like it beter than a good tube amp.

Bottom Line:   
I have listened to this new amplifier a few times,and it is one of those that you immediately say that they are doing something right.#1 musicality! Ultra quite background that makes instruments appear in free space.Built like a tank,double outputs for bi-wiring,balanced inputs,etc. This amp works VERY well on Vandersteens. I would also recommend it's use with the amazing Quicksilver LS linestage preamp.This combo is so good-it's eerie! STEP INTO THE MUSIC!
