Thank you guys, I appreciate the kind words. It's hard not to be excited when something sounds this good.

The AA D'Agostino forum was an interesting and useful read when I was doing my background research. Based on what I've heard so far I don't think anyone was exaggerating about their D'Agostino experiences.

Anyone planning on making it to Definitive's Music Matters open house in March? I RSVP'd for the March 6 event, so maybe I'll see some of you there.

Thanks again,

Steve Z

Thanks, Anton.

Well, we should at least buy matching shirts and funny hats. . .

Hey Steve:
As one who has heard the D'Agostino S250 on many occasions (including in my home), I can say that there is no finer sounding ss amp on the planet (but I have not heard the Relentless). And the looks are a heck of a bonus. Congratulations.
