How good is the Bel Canto Evo 200.2 amp?
I have heard varying opinions-wasn't the Evo 200.2 rated Stereophile Class A? Yet, I see alot of them for sale-did it turn out not to be that great of an amp? How does it compare with similiarly-priced ($2500 new) SS designs? Does it compare against the PS Audio HCA-2 (another digital amp). What about running 2 of the Evo 200.2's in mono-does this make for a great sound?
I was thinking about giving one a try-my current amp is a C-J MF-2200 and preamp is C-J PV10A. System sounds good, but maybe a digital amp would be a better combo with a tube pre? I listen to everthing-looking for something that has tight bass, with clean mids and highs-I listen to Jazz, electronic (ambient mostly, some trance), classical, and some rock (although overly aggressive music is kind of overpowering in my system).
