How was S5 + Vitus? Was it the Class A or Class A/B? I've heard the big Class A Vitus amps are great, but way out of my price range. The RS-100 stereo amp or the RI-100 integrated are where I'm at.
Simaudio is great with my Dynaudios but not the best for Magico IMO, especially newer Simaudio.
I Loved the build quality on the vitus , Im not sure if it was a class-A model now , but it was huge , not roasting hot like Pass , so maybe an A/AB and stereo , not mono bloc's. The Vitus was also plugged into a power / noise/ UPS type device and i felt at the time it was killing the drive of the amp , it was clear but soft , very little jump or drive , the owner later confirmed after taking the amp straight to the wall the difference was night and day ...
I now have to go back and hear it ...this is why i go straight to the wall with power amps...
Thanks. I'm with you on plugging amps directly into the wall. Magicos are not kings of dynamics, but from what I was told the Vitus Class AB amps are good with dynamics, and the big Class A monos too. But the 25W Class A integrated is more about finesse.
I may move on from the Magicos anyway.
Vitus is on my list as well.
