Audio Research VSi-55 integrated amp - comments?

Hi everybody,
i'm moving back to nyc tonight stereolessnessnoless. i had to sell everything here to scale down for a small apartment. so sad to see my counterpoints go.

I started researching integrated amps. I can't find any comments here or other sites for the new ARC vsi-55. It's priced right so i'm wondering how it sounds and if it's worth searching one out in nyc for a demo.

thanks for any comments on an integrated amp. (i have a seperate phono stage so that's not an issue although it would be nice to have one in the amp/preamp to save even more space.)

adios, los angeles.
keep the counterpoints
IH' I just tried the VSI55 & it is a bit dark like most tubes not like other ARC I have tried althow. But it was nice. With a good soundstag.
I listened to the ARC but thought my Consonance M100 plus actually sounded better for less money.
