Now if you have a 10,000+CF HT space and like to listen at reference + levels then maybe I could understand but in a normal HT space, at normal volumes it just isn't necessary to have that much power (the LG was overkill).
That said, I came very close to spending way too much for the Cherry amps after "hearing them"
at RMAF. We are all susceptible to the cool factor but what I heard was the 210RT's doing their thing well setup and powered. Sorry DD but I know from personal experience that they probably would have sounded just as good with a couple of $400 Inukes.
IMHO (see my sig) those who hear sound differences in amps are reading between the lines and simply have an upgrade itch that needs scratching.
I am sure you are correct. I did see that you had been looking at the Marashino's but didn't realize you have the inukes. Which one(s) do you use? I am looking to get fewer d/a conversions in my system which is why I have been thinking of switching out the inukes.
