Some folks asked about tube alternatives for the M1.2. Check the sidebar: Power, isolation and tube rolling.

Great review Tima, I really enjoyed your perspectives on you going out on a limbic with your listening.

As much as I can find things of worth in reading a variety of reviewers I feel that both you and Myles are genuine standouts in the field with writings of valuable insight, depth and honesty... thanks for your contributions to the learning.

tima...great review Do you have any sense how the M1.1s sound relative the M1.2s. I occasionally see M1.1s come up on Agon for $6-8K and if it gets in the ballpark to the M1.2 sound that might be an affordable way to go. I am assuming the M1.1 would be an upgrade from my Ref 110 in the areas of bass depth and articulation, tonal density, dynamic range, and overall frequency extension. Paired with a Reference ARC preamp that should be a good combo. Occasionally I see M1.2s come on used market in the $11-14K range and that would be the preferred path to go but 2X the M1.1. So just wandering if you have a sense for M1.1 relative to the M1.2. Thanks.

Wow, Tim. You are like a poet describing musical attributes and recordings. It's great to have someone of your caliber here on AA.

Dear Cyril, Randy, Carlos, Bart, Graham and reader friends - my sincere thanks to each of you for reading and for your kind words.

Graham I took advantage of your musings on non-cognitive listening and thank you for those. Cyril, thank you, I responded off-line. Bart and Carlos you have that Maazel/VPO Sibelius 1; I'd love to know your thoughts in the Classical thread.

Tima, I've been non-cognitive for so long now I almost forget that there is any other way...

Tim, I'd like to but I don't have it.
I just looked it up and it is a bit too expensive for me

Unless Ivan still has some...
