I'm demoing the 431 as I write. I demoed the 432, and the 335, but not the 336. I use virgo 111s, arc ref. 2 mark 1, arc cd 3, rega 25 with grado reference, and various nbs cables (statement 111, omega 1). IMO the 431 is the best-by far. Interestingly I thought the 432 too bright and too detailed-artificial albeit very powerful. The 335 didn't do it for me at all although that was on my older speakers-reference mm dacapos. The 431 is extremely neutral and musical-I'm not a musician but I attend a lot of live classical concerts so I think I have a good ear. One left to demo before I decide-the Rogue Zeus. Good Luck , Steve.
