I have not heard the VTL, but it would be a great improvement over the DNA. The Maggies do very well with ARC equipment.

I use the ARC LS16- great piece. Very natural sound, mates well w SS amps as well (I use Theta Dreadnaught,with a vertical bi-amp to Totem speakers). Also works well in a 2-channel/home theater 'combo' environment. You won't be disappointed. If you can afford it though, save up for the Ref 2, as I will one day... Good luck!
