The same dealer as D'Agostino M400 monos and Theta Citadels monos and the JC5 compared favorably. The M400s are really special but for 1/10th the price, the JC5 really does a great job. The dealer opined that the JC5 was a refinement of the JC1s in terms of sound quality.

I would not be surprised if the JC1s see an update in the next year or two based on the JC5's design. I'm told it was a 4-year project for John Curl, Richard Schram and the rest of the team.

I put down my $$$$ for the JC5 which is shipping in June.
Congrats! Looks like a fine amp. Are you going single or two?
