My excitement over this amp isn't only based on Bill's impressions with his HD800. His general description of "it's a MCTH with far better clarity, and does remind me a lot of a super clean Liquid Crimson, minus the slight aggressiveness" is also a strong signal to me. For my own reasons, I've long had relatively high confidence in Bill's tastes, due to lurking, reading impressions elsewhere, and kind of putting the pieces in my head together. Thirdly, I've already been discussing and expressing excitement for this amp over PMs for a while now. I'm just glibly expressing my excitement over this product. Ultimately, I never know how I'll actually like it until I try it. And I'm about 120% ready to try it.
