Not coming to my house! I wish I could afford this level of equipment

I love my boulder 1050 amplifiers, would not hesitate to own the 3050s if I could. Not actually sure about the 3010 preamp though -- I am very partial to tubes in my preamp gain stage. VAC statement preamp paired with boulder 3050 amps might be my dream system.

I look forward to the reviews... meanwhile, I'll slum it with my Boulder 2060.

Yeah, I feel sorry for you.

You're really going to suffer with what was their last top of the line!

Hmmmmmm.....not sure about the aesthetics of that, but I'm sure it'll be a state of the art piece. Kind of looks like something out of Wargames.

I am usually a big fan of Boulder's industrial design. Not sure about this one.
