Congrats Tommy on 20 Years making audiophiles happy! Count me as one too, you see Tommy has bent over backwards and jumped thru hoops to keep me smiling, first when I snapped a binding post off my Cherry Ultra, and then when I arced speaker cables when they fell out of my Genesis stand mount speakers taking out the right channel. All Tommy said was he was glad I didn't hurt the Genesis, and to ship it back!!
I purchased my Cherry Ultra back in 2012 and it was love at first site and sound, but for various reasons be it my messed-up electrical mains power box, wall plugs, ( both new now ) or shipping back and forth we couldn't get it to run or stay running here. Tommy had suggested going to the Maraschino 48V mono-blocs but I was hesitate giving up the shear power the Ultra delivered. Finally I tried the Maraschino amps, but it wasn't so easy at first giving up that big juice. Also coming off many months listening to a tube amp, a new learning curve if you will but getting a far better handle on things now, such as letting out my preamp farther than I ever have. The Maraschino along with my TL- DAC DAC are sounding very nice indeed!! Thanks to Tommy not giving up on me throughout these many long months, a class act for sure!
