(I WANT IN) a good solid state amp - almost true

In the end we all have "our" idea of a perfect stereo. I think I'm a little peculiar in that I like a slightly different sound between my stereos. This is why I have and use tube amps, Solid state amps, vintage amps and new amps. I like to change it up occasionally. So I'm not really "fixed" into one type of sound.

However! I do expect good detail, clarity, balance, imaging, etc... from any stereo I eventually keep. Regardless of it's heritage. It's only criteria is I have to listen to it and "hear a great stereo" and be moved by it.

I've had some of the "hot ones" with "hot numbers" and true be told I didn't care for a number of them. Many of them came and went. What I am finding in my later years is money doesn't necessarily equal good audio. Matching and synergy does. And also at some point money isn't actually going into the sound just the hype.
