I have a nap 250/82/cdx/xps/2 hicaps in main system and 140/72/cd3.5/ 2 flatcaps in office. The 72 is equally at home with either amp. 82 sounds much better with the 250 and is more revealing of upstream electronics. New reference gear is smoother and a bit more open. Olive is less in your face than chrome but chrome and olive gear boogie like son of a gun compared to reference gear. One mans opinion.
