firebook23... I don't know if Tom has a "bee in his bonnet" or not I just think he is clueless, his review of the M2 clearly illustrates that. Tom didn't even read the press release he said it was a "really sort of a hybrid. It is a traditional amp with non-traditional inputs" and if you read up on it, it is nothing of the sort. and this "review" is a lame attempt at humour for someone with nothing (of any value) to say... or at least that's how it looks from here.
