I can't add here because I just got my first Jolida (502brc), but it was intended as a stepping stone. So I am very interested in replies to this thread. Let's keep it neat the top until a few members have "chimed-in"

Started with a 502B, and went to VTL MB 300 monos with a Manley Reference Linestage. Obviously the VTL's have much more speaker control and dynamics, but my 502B was pretty heavily modded, so at lower volumes they were much closer. The bigger improvement was going from box speakers to Magnepans. And lately, there was an incredible new level reached with the addition of a Stello CD-5 CDP. Its amazing what a good DAC and Clock section do.
