    @iFi audio I've never heard one of their products, but the korean versions look stunning, oh, and "full transconductance system" sounds sexy even without playing music :)
    "My system transconducts twice as much current as yours (and all class A, zero feedback)" must be the ultimate Hifi E-peening sentence :D

    Aye, this looks good indeed, pricier than it actually is, which is good for NAD.

    @9suns

    Those are gorgeous but if I had a 150k pair of amps I wouldn't place them directly on a brown 70's rug :D

    Those babies need an oak or mahogany table or something like that.

    Nop, milled from a single block of aluminum and "satin champagne" color anodizing...the pins of the tube sockets are gold plated btw haha :D

    Oh yeah, fully agree! But there's something special about those 70's brothel style rugs haha
