An Additive to my OP. The dynamics are much more evident. I'm just pushed back in my chair. It's amazing that 9 watts with the proper speaker can make you more on the edge of your seat

The Spectron is Class D right? I'd expect you'd hear quite a difference between that and tubes especially SET. Pretty much opposite ends of the spectrum. It'd be interesting if you had a class A amp in there to compare too. But yeah, it's great if you can afford a lot of different sounding gear. Better yet when you afford to have two or more systems for different types of music.
Yes it's class D. But it's the best one I've auditioned and I've listened to a lot. Including traditional A/AB solid state amps. Fully class A solid state amps have always sounded too slow for my taste. I've been a SET guy for years and just change up to the sound of what's supposely the latest greatest form of music reproduction thus, the Sophia/Spectron combo. Hard to beat the 300B in SET.
Just dumped my Sophias for Maggie 3.6R's...properly setup they are vibrant, effortless and smooth. Very alive
sounding with tremendous transparency and dimensionality. Makes the Wilsons sound slow and closed in...full scale imaging with an acoustic wave launch to die for! I'm using Krell amplification with great success. I also improved the sound by installing the Cardas Maggie jumper kit and tweeter attenuation jumpers along with HiFi Tuning fuses...very seeet:O ) I've also never found a speaker that responded so well to MIT cabling...closer to the real thing than ever.
