Default Incoming Ref160Ms

My new black Ref160Ms have arrived at the dealership. Will have them within the week. They will replace my Ref 150 which has KT150s. Looking forward to it.

Prepare for some long (wonderful) nights with your new amps. I'm right around 150 hours on mine and just last night listened for a few hours. The amps will have your Alexias singing like never before. Congrats and enjoy!

Congratulation, Great Amps
Do you plan to put them in Rack, or on Amp stands?
