Perhaps we could get Anthony Cordesman--remember the "Auricle", in Audio Magazine?--to review it. He would trip over himself, giving us 42 reasons, why it's the greatest thing, since pizza. The higher the price, the more positive his reviews.

The cans arent a bad value at all. The measurements and adherence to the Harman Curve is almost spot on.

Amplifiers with tubes nowadays are a silly backward idea. Tubes will never perform as well as a good solid state product. Moreover, our planet is hot enough, we don't need more heat!

Perhaps but there are some excellent examples out there.

LOL, many a SS amp will draw more current than a tube amp, not to mention a Class A amp wastes more power idling as well as crazy heat generation. If you're thinking 'green' you had best stay with Class D

I was more interested in his marriage to Kim Cattral than any of his electronics....wonder if she still has any of his gear.....

ps then again does Levinson himself have anything to do with the Harman brand designs these days? Was thinking he was associated with some new high end brand out of europe....but it's been a while....
