I heard a set of Nuforce monos on a wonderful wilson setup. I did not expect them to sound so good, and they were not too expensive.
I have the Musician III SE for almost two months now. IMO, this amp is hard to beat, even at three times its price. Lots of control and detail. Makes music sound very very real. It's hard to describe, but this amp just plays whatever is thrown at it with authority and finesse. The most neutral piece of gear I've had in my system. It is very sensitive to any changes in the system. For instance, now it's easy to hear what a power cable is doing or not doing. I change speaker cables and I can clearly hear which one is better.
I was deciding between the Bel Canto Ref.1000 and the Musician III SE. I heard the Bel Cantos at THE Show in NYC and thought they were doing a good job considering the room conditions. I decided to try the Musician first and this amp won't go anywhere anytime soon. My two-year search for an amp has finally ended with the Musician III SE.
