300b INTEGRATED AMP Suggestions
A work friend and fellow audio lover had a small Cary 300B amplifier driving Audio Note speakers, I don’t know what model, but they stood on low-boy stands. The sound was really impressive, sounded like a real voices real guitars and so on 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
How do the GAN amplifiers like Audion ADG and Voyager GAN sold by Underwood compare to these super amps being discussed?
