I used to own a pair of these amps, need careful match up to a preamp, preferably tube. However I did a side by side comparision to a pair of Blue Circle BC-2 monoblocks and it was no contest. The Blue Circles were far more musical. So I sold the Claytons. I am not saying they weren't good amps but he would be probably better with a pair of the new Bel Canto digital EVO 200.2 in bridged mono for around the same money. Read the review in www.stereotimes.com or better yet have him audition both amps and let him be the judge. The EVO 200.2 bettered my pair of Blue Circles, so I am going the digital amp route soon.
