I'd take a serious look at the Music Reference RM9 currently for sale on audiogon.  Those amps do well with low impedance loads and are very sound worthy & extremely reliable - especially this one since it's just had a good overhaul by the designer/builder.  If I didn't need all the power I'd buy it myself today.

Well, I picked up an amplifier.  I really wanted the Pass Labs XA160.8 monos, but even at demo prices they were out of my range.

I ended up with a Pass Labs X350.8.  At 700W into 4 ohms it will be more than enough for my speakers.  It arrives next week - can't wait!

Pass makes the best SS amps out there, IMO.  Nice choice :thumb:

Be sure to follow up with your impressions after the break-in period. I think you’re going to be astounded...and a new Pass Labs fan.
