I do not equate “richer bass” with more bass.

I am not limiting my comment to Joseph Audio speakers. I think 2 feet from the back wall to the tweeter is not enough space for any speaker. Speaker set up is critical. I would recommend Jim Smith’s’s book, “get better sound.”

BTW, this is the same location as my original Perspectives.

It may vary room to room. My Perspective2s are 55” from the rear wall to the tweeters. This is the same distance as the Magnepan 20.1s they replaced. My YG Carmels are 40” from the rear wall even though they are sealed. Pulling any speakers away f... 
Anyone here with Magico A3 driven by Bel Canto Ref600's?
Not all class D amps sound the same. He is asking about the REF600M.  
The best speaker for a small room...at any price point.

Back to the topic, Stereophile rates the Bel Canto REF600M as Class A with $$$, meaning they are an excellent buy. They have an iron grip on bass, and smooth and silky midrange and top end.

To answer your question audiotroy, all of them apparently hear better. It is not necessarily hearing, but in your case, bias founded in financial self-interest. For $5K, and I have owned them, the REF600M are terrific, award-winning amps at a grea...

Yes, audiotry’s opinion trumps all of the Absolute Sound editors and writers.

The REF600M was Absolute Sound’s 2017 product of the year. It is NCore based, not ICE based. It has a magical midrange and smooth top end.  Did any of the amps audiotroy recommend earn any similar recognition?

I have owned the Joseph Audio Pulsars, the original Perspectives and the Perspective2s. I gave the Pulsars to my father-in-law, who has them set up in a small room. I doubt two feet from the back wall is enough. They are rear ported. You need to g...

Audio Troy does not like anything they do not sell.  The REF600M are great amps and will pair well with Magicos.
