    That's right....$400.00 (street price at about $300.00) and you can get the sound quality (if not the respect from audio-snobs) like those of Classe or Bryston components. I haven't even mention the inclusion of Dolby Digital, dts, and Dolby Pro-logic II decoding either.

    It's a digital amp? That sounds "tubelike" ? I don't think Bryston/Classe have anything to worry about...

    So the new Sony digital receivers may be worthwhile too..?

    Actually, someone at audioasylum.com already posted comments last year on Sony's digital amps inside its inexpensive A/V receiver. I just saw one for $150.00.

    Here's the post.

    Chu,

    You can get more info than you would ever want about my speakers at the website below.

    The Panasonic is neither Tripath nor Class D. It uses Texas Instrument's Pulse Width Modulation technology to drive the speakers directly.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Yeah - there was heavy discussion over this at audiocircle.com

    This and the Sony C70ES - now updated to C700ES.
