Dan D'Agostino is already established as one of the best amplifier designers of all time. This goes beyond cementing his already, well, cemented reputation. I'd say this is a halo product intended to elevate his brand in the minds of people as being among the very best in existence which will help fuel sales of his, eh hem, lesser models...

As John Atkinson has said in his reviews, Dan performs "heroic engineering."

Based on what I have seen and heard, Relentless will do just fine selling itself.

While many Wilson owners use D'Agostinos, I'm sure that WAMM owners will continue to use their favorite amps on their WAMMs. That said, I suspect many WAMM owners will choose Relentless once they have heard it. It is a revelation.

I also believe Relentless will find its way into many systems below WAMM, from Wilson and numerous other speaker makers.

Bill, I can tell it left an impression on you. Does it really sound that good?

Vern I long ago stopped trying to describe the WAMM to people because I sound silly, like every audio cliche you have ever heard. Yet with every WAMM with which I have been involved, I continue to find even more than I initially realized.

My reaction to Relentless is on that level. I only got a few hours with it but was in awe.
