I live in Pittsburgh - 70 miles from Morgantown. A few weeks back a VPI 16.5 record cleaner was posted for sale in Craigslist Morgantown. I already owned one, but this one looked to be newer and the price was excellent - so I agreed to buy it and so drove to Morgantown to get it. The owner invited to his listening room, where he had a pair of SP Technology Timepiece 3.0 monitors connected to a pair of CIaudio D-200 monoblocks, driven by a Pass Labs X1 pre. The quality of the sound was jaw dropping. This alone made it worthwhile to drive 2 hours to Morgantown WV.
I have owned many high end amps - tube and SS. I was not a fan of Class D topology. I am now. The improvement in soundstage and image definition is surprising.I bought a pair of D-200MkIIs and have been smiling since.
