Wizard: as a techie, you know that since slew rate is dependent on other factors, there is no such thing as a simple "slew rate specification." Fill in the rest of the information I need and I will provide you with the answer you want.

My main amp for the last 5 years has been a Boulder 2060 and the only amps I have heard that are better are also made by Boulder -- the 2160 and the scary 3060. Long before I bought the Boulder I wondered what could possibly make it worth what it cost. The published specs were impressive of course but other cheaper amps boasted similar or greater power ratings for example. The one spec I recall that stood out was the S/N ratio was higher than any other amp I was considering.

It was only when I heard it compared to other amps that I could conclude that, yeah, its worth the engineering and manufacturing effort they put in it and worth the price. I would not have even considered buying it before that. So, a single spec, out of context, may not provide useful information.

But Rich really should update the Boulder website to show the current product line. Didn't the last 2060 roll off the line last fall? But still no 2160 on the website.

If updating the web-site were my responsibility, the 2100 Series would have been up prior to CES! But because it's someone else's responsibility I'm at the mercy of their work schedule. No worries, though - I'm applying as much pressure as I can!
