You might want to check out the following review on nOrh's LeAmp: http://www.tnt-audio.com/ampli/norhleamp_e.html TNT-Audio is a little off the beaten path as far as review sites, so most of you would probably miss the review (which is why I am posting it). I've demo's the LeAmps (for use in my HT) pretty extensively in a variety of systems over the past few months myself, and I concur almost completely with this particular reviewer's take. Ultimately I ended up with Odyssey Stratos amps in my HT, mainly because I had the $$ to splurge for them. However, at $495/pair or $1250 for 5 (deliverd), I don't think there are many amps out there that can compete (the LeAmps are monoblocks, BTW). If you head to www.harmonicdiscord.com there is a nOrh forum, where a friend of mine and I did some extensive shootouts with a variety of amps (Bryston, Aragon, Odyssey, LeAmps, Counterpoints, Denon 5800 amps, etc. . .). They might be having server problems right now though (I couldn't get in today for some reason). He ended up with Aragons, I ended up with Odysseys. But we both thought the LeAmp was extremely impressive at its price point. To put it in perspective, I thought the LeAmps bettered competively (or somewhat higher) priced offerings from Rotel, Parasound, Adcom, and NAD. And that the LeAmps were slightly better than the Bryston amps I was looking to replace in my HT. Brian Cheney (of VMPS speakers, which just won "Best of Show" at CES - go Brian!) compared them with a Plinius SA250IV and a pair of Marantz monoblocks. Obviously the Plinius outclassed both amps, but the Marantz was a distant 3rd to the LeAmp. Aaannyywwaaayyy, the reason I am mainly posting this is the LeAmp is a very nice product for those looking for very good sound at a pretty cheap price. In speakers we have several very good options for quality sound at a nice price (ACI Emeralds, Swan Diva's, nOrh 4.0's, Ascend Acoustics, Home Theater Direct - see www.cheaphometheater.com). Also subwoofers (HSU, SVS, Adire). And DVD players (Panasonic RP-91). And now a very good amp (LeAmp). HOPEFULLY the Outlaw pre/pro will live up to expectations, and people can end up with a truly high quality HT setup without having to dip in to the kid's college fund. nOrh is a bit off the beaten path, so I hope no one minds my unprovoked post on this topic.
