sure, the levinson sounds better if you're into thin, dry, lifeless sound. if you prefer "tube-like" liquidity, balls-to-the-wall power, albeit with a bit of "darkness," and superior bass control, go for the JRDG. recognize, in either case, that you'll be a couple of generations behind....but that ain't all bad. BTW, so you know my prejudices, i've owned several JRDG amps that i've mated with several pairs of different avalon speaks (current setup is model 8ti and eidolons). levinson gear, especially the older stuff, sucks big time with avalon. it's ok with pre 5.1 watt/puppies, but that's another story.
