...and bought one of those horrible AR integrated SS amps because I read Julian Hirsch's review in Stereo Review and believed it.

I did that when I was 15 and didn't have a clue. It didn't take long to determine that the amp worked great at high power, but resolution tanked at low levels. I kept mine for a bit longer than you.

I did, however, get a glowing THD chart from none other than Dave O'Brien at a local McIntosh clinic.

That experience demonstrated to me the irrelevancy of the THD metric. :)
