In Reply to: RE: REVIEW: Gilmore Audio Raptor 500D Amplifier (SS) posted by ahendler on August 8, 2012 at 22:24:03
considering that 85 watts of VTL power was sufficient, did you consider the 250 watt Raven?
They have a very similar sound. The Raptors have a little more slam in the bass and are perhaps a tiny bit clearer sounding, probably due to having two completely separate power supplies.
If you want to hear even more slam and clarity try running them off a PS Audio P5 Power Plant. I know Mark Gilmore recommends running them straight from the wall, but the P5 adds a major Wow IMO.

I did consider the Raven but the price for the monoblocks was so appealing I had to go for it
