I have been mulling over the idea myself.Still after much reading come back to the st120 built by Bob Latino. My reason is that VTL seems to give poor service with their older units. The st120 looks excellent, built and sound wise. And they can be upgraded either by you or sent back to the factory without dealing with dealer intervention. I say dealer because VTL new policy is that the owner must ship from a dealer and thats just to intrusive with my time and money.
