I own an int from Vincent, sv226mkII and like it very much. Traded from a Creek 5350SE int into it and is a better match for my Triangle spkrs. The Creek was a fine amp also, but the Vincent brought a very subtle warmth that is welcome with my spkrs. as well as more robust bass. Know the story might be reverse with other spkr brands. Can tell you have never listened to such a wide range of music types, and am really enjoying that. With the Creek I did not enjoy full symph. as much....more chamber music or solo guitar. With this Vincent it seems right and relaxed on all music types.
