The new W4S Mamp monoblocks have been out for almost a year. The are great amps - especially for the price. super transparent with outstanding bass. I had the 1090 quite a few years ago. No comparison IMHO.

It will be interesting to see their next iteration of this product line. The monoblock configuration is desirable for the utmost in channel separation. Obviously there is a price to be paid for this configuration. Hopefully any new stereo or multi-channel amps will have the same 100k ohm input impedance and sweet input buffer stage as found on the Mamps. Keep me posed if you go the new W4S route. I've got a new tri-amp application coming up in 2014.
I was looking at the mAmps but the B&W 802n dip into that 3ohm territory and was worried I need more power (room size 14w x 21l) but maybe the mAmps would be good. I was looking at their older amps (from the power standpoint) but the sonic description of the mAMPS seem like a better fit. I am definitely looking at the warm and organic end of the spectrum.
