I could foresee a possible preamp upgrade, however I can't physically fit the 2160 in my rack, lol! So the 1060 is staying. But as we know, a great preamp can lift a system tremeandously, and I predict the 2110 will be the best preamp in the world when it is released. Mind you, the 1060 is no slouch either!

As a person who is planning an EXTREMELY substantial audio system for late this year, I am looking so forward to hearing the 3050 amps at this year's RMAF. I am hoping the new 2110 Preamplifier will be ready so that I can hear it with the 3050's.....if not I guess that I will simply have to listen to them with the 2010....sigh..is life not hard??

While Boulder is one of a few amp makers I am planning on auditioning, I will admit that I will be going into the audition process with a strong bias TOWARDS Boulder, as I have MANY hours listening to the 2050 amps as well as the 2010 preamplifier. Some of the most orgasmic listening sessions I have ever had were with a system featuring the above mentioned components, along with an Accuphase DP-100/DC-101, Focal Nova Utopia BE's and Tara Labs Reference cabling.....I got to hear that system 4 to 5 nights a week for at least 5 months before the Boulder stuff had to go bye bye.

I also had a delightful chance to tour the factory and what I saw was totally fascinating. The level of craftsmanship was beyond belief, with happy workers who clearly took great pride in their work!!!

I can concur with the friendly people as well...Rich M is one classy dude who has a cruel ability to tease those who are anxiously waiting for the next tidbit of news!!!

Cheers,

I have been saying this for a long time, often to quite negative comments. It is nice to see more and more audiophiles recognizing how good these amps are..

Oh my, I agree....

My worst Boulder "experience" was on another crummy forum where I posted a blurb about Boulder....a person replied in that forum that Boulder was garbage, poorly built, a scam and the worst sounding gear....ever. When I sent him a private message saying how unfortunate it was that he had such a poor experience....his reply?? "I have never heard Boulder before"....yes, this really happened and I can honestly say I never visited that "space" again....

Cheers,

Anyone know if Boulder is still in business? I see Rich@Boulder has not posted since January and I can't get their website to work. Guess I'll try to call later today.

Yes, they are in business. Check out their Facebook page.

In fact they just broke ground on a brand new facility twice the size of their current digs.

Default We're Still Here!

Hi guys -

Sorry for being an absentee. I generally respond when I'm notified that I need to or when there are a lot of questions about new gear. I can't keep up-to-date on the daily goings on here because I have so many other info outlets to monitor (and fill) that I'd go insane trying to keep up with it all.

Not sure why the web-site isn't working. I'll check on that.

With that being said, yes, we are building a new factory that will be more than double the size of where we are now. Ground was broken a week or two ago and foundation work will begin soon. We expect to move in nine months or so.

Development on the 2120 continues and software action items are slowly being narrowed down. Once they're all gone, we release!

Nnnnnnnope, I won't answer any questions about what comes next. Most people have guessed a 3010 preamp, and that's probably a good guess. Maybe. Maybe not.

And if you'll be at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this weekend, I'll see you there. I'll be the one in the hat....
