    I would like to try it. I would never (in the near future) be able to afford one, but would be interesting to see the effects of good amplification in my two channel set up.

    edit: Actually nvm, don't have a pre amp, so I couldn't really try it

    I would like to try this out against my DIY Pass Labs F5 Turbo and Freya. Plan on using it mostly with speakers, but I would love to hear how this amp compares to a DIY option.

    That would be my interest in it. I haven't auditioned the NuPrime yet, but if my perceptions align with yours, the NuPrime may be hunting a NuHome.

    Would like to join if the Saga is included, to try with Omega XRS floorstanders, vs. Cronus Magnum.

    I would be interested in hearing the pair, to see how truly crap my Parasound stack is.

    Ha, no, my experience with them has been - walk into store, hang out for 30 minutes, get ignored. I got the V1 at the old Sound by Singer near Union Square, before they closed.

    I'm interested. Depending on where I'd fall in the order, I may be able to compare to the modulus-286 I'm building (hard to find time right now).

    I'm interested. It should be quite the step up from my current Emotiva amp.

    Update the list. Shipping this out to NY first. Will include Saga (shipped separately) for later people who need a pre.

    ok. One thing, about how much will this cost to ship? Seems like it could be a lot.
