Anything SS sounds better than D'Agostino ?
There have to be at least 20 companies that make a statement amp that is every bit as good as D’Agostino.  At that level, to say that one is better than another is of limited meaning.  More important would be personal preference, and synergy with ...

Jazz is not Blues and Blues is not Jazz.......
Going back to the dawn of recorded jazz and blues in the 20’s there was tremendous cross-fertilization between the genres. They are just sides of a coin, so to speak. If one delves into the free jazz genre, the influence of blues is great.  Check ... 
Woofer pumping possibly due to tube amp when playing vinyl
