Bass and drum punch a plenty with my Van Alstine Fet Valve Ultra 550. Good to 2 ohms! If you live near Atlanta I'll bring it over for you to try if you wish.

Bob reynolds response about impedence made me try a different output on my Van Alstyne preamp. I switched my cd player from tape to spare and a new better quality cable.
It made a huge difference.
Im a bit skeptical about cable and wire claims,
should there be that much difference between outputs?
Now I wonder if would a newer preamp with a cd/dvd output be even better?
i couldnt pass up the deal on the sunfire amp.
I cant believe an amplifier can make that much difference.
lower end full and deep and loud.
voice / piano higher end not as harsh / bright
altogether more balanced from low to high.
separation of individual instruments is unbelievable.
what i thought was electric piano? is a harp!!
are carver preamps as good as the Symphonic reference?
