Default Momentum Mono Blocks in Stereophile

I initially posted this is the wrong thread (Dan's Stereo Amps). My Bad

The Stereophile review by MF in the February 13 issue has arrived in the mail. Bottom line he states that along with the DarTZel 458's it is one of the two best amps he has heard.

Thanks Jim,

Until I get my issue, did MF use his Dartzeel 18NS preamp with the Momentum amps?

Yes, that is what he lists as the pre-amp for the Momentum review.

Jim...I guess you like MF now as you share speakers and he likes your amps

I think he upgraded from the Maxx 3's to the Alexandria XLF's, skipping over my little old X2 Series 2.

Jim.......Just got my latest copy of Stereophile today. When I saw the Momentum on the cover I immediately thought of you. I figured you'd be all over it. I haven't read the review yet, just a little too busy this afternoon with other stuff.
