Followed 2 threads for high power amps, today: the EAD Powermaster and the Shoreline 800. The latter, at $125,000, sounds like "a real piano", although maybe only in Italian Restaurants.A few years ago, Bob Carver made those high-power amps, too. The EAD and the Carvers got great reviews, although you seldom hear about them now. Are we all missing something? Does it take 5000 watts? And can I keep my Canary at that end of the room if I get one? And if tenth row, main floor season tickets to Severance Hall cost about $1500, and a limo for each Thursday night about $100, how much music can I get for $125,000? Anybody out there good at math?
