I have recently purchased a YBA Passion integrated. I'm driving JM Lab Micro Utopias. I've had it now for about 2 weeks. Prior to this I was driving it with a Cary tube amp. The sound is different. The YBA is faster and has more extension on both the high end and the low end. the Cary his a cleaner mid. The reason I chose the YBA was two fold. Both YBA and JM Lab are French companies. At this year's CES show here JM Lab launched their new Utopia's at the show. They chose to drive them with the YBA passion integrated. You know that they want to put their best foot forward and they chose ths amp. this forced me to do a lot of research. everything I read here and Stereophile indicated that this amp was a special amp. So far I agree!
