Charging A Fee To Demo An Amplifier In A Brick & Mortar Store
No Way. I'd pay more to someone else first just to keep the money out of their pockets. I don't buy homes or cars like that and won't pay for someone to do their jobs. They also miss out on future purchases. I know it's not my name on their licens...

What's the deal with Canary and why have these amps been FS for so long?
I've owned lots of amps ss and tube. I have the Canary M350's with 300b and 6sn7 tubes. You can't go wrong with these mono blocks. Running a pair of Legacy Whispers (without the built in amps. Also ran Wilson Witt series II, and Lipinski L707''s. ... 
McIntosh 275 power amplifier with Cary 98SLP preamp
Get new hexfreds and Cardas caps put in the Mark I. The pre has enough gain in it so you don't really need the mark II. The 275 runs cool but doesn't have as much tube like sound.  
McIntosh 275 power amplifier with Cary 98SLP preamp
Get good matching tubes for the pre. I've used a McIntosh 7270, Cary V12R Cary CAD 120s thru my 98 P pre. The V12 R sounded good but ran hot as hell. The CAD 120s sounded better and ran cooler. I'm running Canary M350 monoblocks and they work the ...

Legacy audio Focus se and tubes
I ran A Cary SLP 98P pre with a Cary CAD 120' s driving Whispers and not a problem. Now I'm using 50 watt Canary M350 Mono blocks and again, not a problem. More than enough power. Plenty of bass. 26x12.5x8 room.  
Carver M1.5t vs. Krell or ML
I had a 1.5t when they first came out. A bad ass amp if you like loud. Should sound pretty good with the CJ. No worries with 86db, you've got lots of power.  
Is it just me or does the "new" posting parameters seem like there unproductive?

Raven 20 watt needs Speakers
I met Dave in Tampa last month. I don't think they've named their speakers yet, but I heard 2 sets of them and they sounded good. I don't recall which amps or int amps they were using though.
