My agostino amp is one of the best no doubt after I fed it via torus giant voltage regulator driving my Giya speakers

The torus is able to supply way more than mains in 1/2 cycle at 120amps , 1 ,5 secs etc.


Whaa! You v hi end now bro :D One of my dream systems :)

Karans do get warm in use. They need good ventilation all round to avoid heat build up. When putting in a rack, take air flow into consideration.
If you do not need the full power of the KAS400/600, KAS180mk2 is arguably the best sounding of the Karan power amps at a very reasonable price.

I am enjoying immensely the music that my KSA180mk2  is making. It's essentially the integrated minus the pre-amp section. Matched with Wilson Sophias, the music is luxurious, fast and very controlled with good PRaT.

Acrolink 6100 is working fine for me. Lots of speed and dynamics. Did not do A/B with the supplied cord.

I bought my pair many years ago. Since then, there are better models in the Acrolink Mexcel range and prices have changed. Call X-Audio for a quote. But ball-park range will be $1,600 to $2,000 per 2m cable.
