Yup, awesome sounding amps for sure. I own a pair but paid "only" about $4,800 for mine used. I had an older pair( newer ones do sound "better) and the newer models I now have. I purchased both used for under 5K. His price for a new pair are way out of my range but for a 75% discount , I'm in heaven. Cant miss, and yes for me after owning over 40 different SETs over the years they rank up there , but I must agree, there is a limit as to what I can justify as "cost". With 2 still in college my limit for ANY amp is about 5K.
You paid 4800 for a used pair of 2A3 mono blocks that we are listening to in the video? How much are they new?

To me, even 5K for an amp is over the top for me but if it does what you want it to do then it does. But again, how does one justify spending the initial amount so you can get a deal of $5K used and realistically how many are out there? You don't see them come up too often for sale used. So either there aren't that many or they are that good. I personally can't see even spending what you did.
I saw the posting Dennis made to me and although he says a lot there are still very little parts to justify $14K or so for a pair of new amps.
