Though there are other amps on my list, the Mac 501 and the JC 1 are getting most of my attention lately. The AA refurbs are tempting.
Does anyone know if the JC 1 runs hot when in low/regular bias mode? According to Parasound, idle power is about half of what it is at high bias (250W).
I had a mishap which may affect things, my VPI PLC isn't working, and I'm wondering if I should try getting it fixed or replace it ($1195 MSRP). That's a chunk out of any money I might use for an amp. We'll see. It doesn't stop the process, however; it may set me back a month or so.
