late to the party, but great thread. I'm not in the same ball park as most of you, but I'm seriously considering the 300. I need to take a trip down to Sarasota to see family and go listen at Suncoast. Any more thoughts Greg?

I have been occupied with other distractions. It’s been a while since I listened to my rig. I’ll try to post some more updates over the next few weeks.

Please do tell your bride that fwiw, everyone on this board who reads this post rolls their eyes at the end of the first sentence.

I wanted to consider the 300 when I decided I needed more power than the AX-5 Twenty in my main system, but at that time, they had pulled out of the US market (though they maintained their service center here). With Vitus' introduction of the RI-101, I'd have to consider both of these were I to change or upgrade a non-primary system.

I'll be interested in hearing your thoughts. While it was unavailable here in US, it sure garnered seemingly universal high praise in EU and AU.

I hope you get the chance to listen to both of them. I have not heard the new Vitus, but I am confident it is a great performer. But then again that also goes for my Diablo 300. As always on this level - it is down to individual taste and matching the rest of the equipment.

I am using a Wireworld Silver Electra 7 power cord. I also have used Audioquest Hurricane (which made more of an impact on my source components).

I went straight to a Nordost Valhalla. Just to keep all cables in the set up the same. So I can not provide any comparisons on the impact on a high end cable vs the standard one that comes with the amp. But over the years I have done enough A - B testings to know there is a difference to be had.

I've heard the Diablo 300 with a few power cords, Wireworld Silver Electra7 is a good match and value for money, but with Jorma Origo it shines.

The new Audioquest Dragon cord is very very special. The Elrod and Enklein should also be on your list to audition.
