Yes I did get the updated amplifier back and it is perfect. That slight "coldness" I was hearing with the highs is completely gone. The highs are still very crisp and clean. Dennis hit a home run with changes he made. I watched a couple movies with the old amp and it sounded awesome I had no complaints there. The newer version sounds awesome with music and movies. My sound stage sounds amazing and I am very pleased. I need a little more time to do some critical listening but that is my initial impression.

Interesting!

I'm really happy with what I hear now, but if it could be better....... Though I'd have no way to compare other than by memory. Did Dennis detail exactly what he did to the amp - do you know if it's a modification, or different amp modules entirely?

Anyway, glad you are liking (loving?) it!!

I posted exactly what dennis e-mailed me a few posts back. I have no clue what he did. I wanted to open the old amp and take pics but i didnt feel right since I was sending it back.

Understood!

I actually just called Dennis - so, it's a modification to the input buffer circuitry. I will not claim to understand what that means. BUT he did indicate that within a few weeks, he will likely make a more official announcement about it on the website. I think I'm going to have this done to my amp too. Just gotta figure out when a good time to do so will be to be without my system for a week or so....??
