I only have 82 hrs on my ref6 and I can't believe how good it sounds! I swear mine sounds better than the loaner from my dealer. Really just incredible how it pulls you in and expands the soundstage...it's practically 3D. Listening to roger waters amused to death , it IS 3D. Roger really did that QSound right. If you've never heard that, go get it immediately. It's mind blowing!

I have 400 hours now on my REF 6 and it really has become other worldly! Anyone who bought one of these is in for a real treat! I'm convinced I will never sell this!!!

Sorry don't mean to derail this thread but I just stumbled over this looking for owner reviews on Ref 6. Does anyone know of any comparison reviews between the ARC Ref 6 and the BAT REX II preamp? Just looking for owners' input. FWIW, it'll (most likely) be paired with a pair of Bryston 7B cubed amps driving ML SummitX. Thanks.
