Job well done.
Well, I believe all high quality high power amps sound the same driving the same speakers at the same volume matched to 0.5dB.
Rotel, Parasound, Classe, Krell, Mark Levinson, Lexicon, ATI, Sunfire, Cary Audio, Theta, NAD, McIntosh, Denon, Marantz, etc.
But I think it's cool to buy $20K Krell, Levinson, McIntosh, etc.
I think all high quality cables sound the same too. But if you have the pocket change, $20K cables is cool too.
But we can still voice our opinions and say, "I disagree with you, but I'm glad you're happy, and I think your gears are really cool".
