MBL 8011 - Impressions?

I'm considering few amplifiers; among them is Boulder and MBL 8011s.
It is really hard to find a dealer of MBL in the US.
Does someone have any experience with MBL?
The best MBL guy around TED at www.highendaudio.com
Ted has great ears and years of knowledge with MBL .
Ted may be a great guy, however he is an Mbl dealer, so obviously he is baised.
Yah: Ted maybe is a little Biased and i guess all sales people are and have to believe in there product,but you have to trust some one some where and being I have purchased many peices from Ted I thought he could be a good starting point....Anyway good luck
