I have owned the older 60 watters and also the Silver 90. I have heard the Silver 60 in a dealer showroom. Best midrange I have heard at any price. High's are slightly rolled and bass can be a little thick, but you can work around this by properly matching with cables, speakers, preamp, etc. Older Quicksilvers are biased high and tubes may not last as long, but once you hear them you probably won't care. My impression is VTL has a "faster" more transparent sound, but can sound too forward with the wrong speakers. Which is better will depend on other equipment and taste.
