I own a pair

I use them on my Infinity RSIIb speakers, which have planar mids and tweeters with PP cone woofers. They do a great job in delivering controlled, tight bass without being strident on the high notes. Smooth, crystal clear midrange as well.

I originally auditioned the Gilmore Raven stereo amp on a pair of Zu Druids (since replaced by the vintage Infinities), versus NuForce Ref 9 V2 SE and Atmasphere S30. While the S30s had slightly more midrange bloom, the Raven was solid and tuneful throughout the musical spectrum. NuForce was a distant third, hard and strident sounding in my system.

When I moved to the VERY different Infinity speakers, the Raven didn't miss a beat - I upgraded to the monoblock Raptors and was rewarded with even more powerful bass without losing anything in the rest of the spectrum. I don't envision ever selling them.
