I had a Cronus for about 2 weeks, I wasnt sure how a 55wpc integrated would handle my B&W N804s. It handled them in style, I was very impressed with the Cronus, so much that I went ahead and snagged a Tempest II. The cRonus is a great unit, switching the pre-amp tube made the biggest difference, i threw in a NOS 12au7 Mullard & that took things to a new level. The reason i wanted a T II was to have a little more power for those times when im home alone & can rock the house. For regular listening the Cronus is just as good as the T II.
