Re: WHO MAKES THE BEST AMP?
You are right, the Bel Canto's did a great job with the Joseph Audio speakers. I have heard Joseph Audio several times and like them everytime I hear them. I still own several pairs of JSE speakers from the mid 80's (which is where they got the basics for their corssover design), which has some 20 years of mods on now. I don't know if you got to see the Cabbasse room which was powered by some 10 of the Bel Canto's mono's. Unfortunately the speakers were WAY to large for the little room they had and sounded terrible.
Just to put it out there one of my favorite rooms was the Nagra/Verity room. The new Nagra CD player was sooooooo smooth it was truly comparable to analog!
