New Class D amplifiers
It is a difficult choice between the AGD Audions and the Atma Ds. I may keep both. Speaking generally, they are greatly characterized by the nationality of their designers. Alberto, being from Italy, has created amps that, very much, have a roma... 
New Class D amplifiers
I have AGD Audions and Atma-Sphere Class D. Both are excellent. Among the best ever. The AGD are more tube-like and the Atmas are more dynamic and transparent.  
SET amplifier (for AvantGarde Duo's-original) recommendations
SET for sure. The lower the power, the more the magic. So, the 45 tube is the way to go. Yamamoto makes a very good 45 amp. And they are very affordable. Unless, you get a $5400 pair of the new Atma Class D. Ralph uses them with his very effi... 
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
@lula  Yes, I would say the main difference between the AGDs and the Atmas is that the AGDs do have more bloom tube-like sound.   
Do I buy an upscale TT?
The other big question is how much does the TT contribute to the SQ?  
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
AGD Audions are lovely. Atma Ds are more detailed and transparent. But some may prefer the AGDs    
Speakers for Atma Sphere M60 mk3
Save $ and get better performance-Atma-Sphere Class Ds ($5400). More transparent, detailed wt much better bass.  I had M-60s. The new Atma Ds beat them by a wide margin. One of the best amps I have heard. Ralph actually recommends the Ds over a... 
It was 61 years ago today...
I was 12. A memory burned into my consciousness and subconscious. Was already aware of the Beatles. So, this was anxiously anticipated. Laying on my parents bed watching their TV. Enthralled by every moment. This moment in time lay the course o... 
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
Finally got mine a week ago. Wow, they are detailed, transparent, musical with tremendous bass. About the best I have ever heard. Don't see why anyone would not love them!  
Under my tower speakers -- Isoacoustics Gaia, other options?
@nonoise  On the contrary. If the T Podiums have such profound effect on something as delicate as a stick with a motor attached, imagine what they can do with vibrating box!  
Under my tower speakers -- Isoacoustics Gaia, other options?
Only my experience and my understanding. Doubt any manufacturer would make such sweeping, absolute statements. There is a YouTube of Max T demonstrating the effect of the Podiums. There are 2 platforms. One with his tech and one with spikes. A... 
Under my tower speakers -- Isoacoustics Gaia, other options?
Townshend Podiums will be so effective as to like double the value of any speaker. When the speaker is decoupled from the floor, the vibrations that leaked down to the floor will then come out of the drivers! Almost total transformation.  
Ultimate stereo nightmare
Did you switch the ICs to the amp? Every time I had a channel go out it was a blown amp.  
Phonostage comparisons
I am enjoying my Grado Epoch3! Do you also load it at 47K? How does it compare to the London? Am thinking of getting a Zesto Andros Deluxe! Love the Zesto sound. It should be beyond my full function Atma-Sphere MP-1. There was some thought of t... 
Best sounding low power (under 80watts) Class AB amp?
+3 AGD The new stereo Tempo is almost the same as the upper line Audions for a bit over $5K. The cream of GaN amps. And light weight. Shouldn’t discount all Class D.
