Other Notes: "I keep shaking my head at the end of every listening session. There doesn't seem to be a limit to the Ars Sonum's magic. As I said, maybe you can have a little bit more of this of that, although I'd be hard-pressed to say what without doing a side by side comparison. Oh yes, maybe it doesn't have that utter blackness of the best solid state designs. But that's really nit-picking and more of an audiophile than a musical criteria.
I really hesitated before going for such a "reasonably" priced amplifier, and such a small one at that. How could it rival bigger, much more expensive machines? What would be the trade-off? Well the proof is in the listening, and I can happily and honestly report that there's no trade-off. The Filarmonia made me a happy audiophile, which probably means I'm not an audiophile anymore." - Audiogon Review
