Ever curious, I decided to swap my gm70's for we300b's. I hope that I will love the change, but i am nervous given how much I like the dynamic nature (slam) of the gm70's. But the order is placed...

Congrats Freestone, I'm sure you'll love it - WE300B'd are a holy grail amp!

Now I'll just selfishly hope that Ken builds my CCQ's before he builds your WE300B's. That's 2 of us waiting on some pretty sweet amps at the moment!

Thanks. And I think it's only fair he builds yours first. Yours sound great.

I just need to decide now on the big Latours...then no more decisions.

I don't think I would be able to discern the difference...but who knows? There has to be seriously diminishing marginal improvements? If it was truly "dramatic" but...and at some point the question of whether it is "worth it" needs to be asked.

I do like the giscours. It's a good place to be. Though I enjoy Petrvs as a wine for sure!

Congratulations Richard !

You will know enjoy a true balanced connection between the Giscours and the WE 300B.
I doubt that you will loose anything compared to the Lafon....

Wow, Freestone. Can you offer any insight as to why you made the change? I, too, have the gm70's and love then. But they are a different animal than the 300bs that I have (different brand). That said, I recently redid my music room and now have the gm's in a custom and open cabinet. Sort of like your set up was. But I'm surprised by how hot they are and how they heat a shelve above them. So I've begun wondering about grand master kens 300b, which I know will be cooler in a relative context.

Regardless, please keep us all posted. And congratulations on having fun along your journey. I suspect that magnificent room of yours will be even more magical!
