I have a friend who has the YBA 2h/c monos, YBA 2 preamp and YBA 3 CD player. I have spent considerable time listening to them. I have also listened to YBA's top of the line system approximately $180K I love the YBA sound. It's very smooth, detailed and musical. Most of all I find it makes you forget about the music and emotionally connects you to the music. It's a great line. I have also heard on a few occasions the YBA 1 h/c Monos and Stereo amps. It's a fantastic amp. My experience with YBA is that it sometimes does not integrate well with other components. It very much reminds me of NAIM in the fact that YBA sounds best with YBA. I would highly recommend auditioning the YBA 1 h/c in your system before purchasing it. It will either blow you away or not integrate. It's a very powerful amp. YBA systems create some of the nicest musical sound I have heard. Good Luck!!
