I'm a little late in the game with this post but I can say playing Herbie Hancock's River cd last night through my vintage Rotel RCD 02,ASL Wave Line,MSB Link III,Golden Voice tube amp,Linn LK 100,and Focal/JMlab Chrous 706s spkrs have me tapping my toes. A great cd for the detail oriented. This rig indeed has soul. I'm biamping the Focals with the tube amp (12 watts) on the tweeters and the Linn on the woofers. Stay thristy my friends.
