The Plinius 8150i is the best Solid State Integrated I have heard. This includeds the Goldmunds, Classe's, Krells, Bryston, etc. I do like the VAC AVATAR better, but whose got the money for this tubed wonder. The ARC CA50 has no flexibilty and The Jadis Orchestra is a dead end piece as well. While these latter two sound nice, be sure you have no upgrade fever. Bac to the Plinius...it is smooth as silk and has the guts to reproduce transients when needed. Fantastic with thiels, Proacs, Joseph Audio etc.I love the dual speaker binding posts for Biwiring. Get it and you won't be sorry.
