Second it is stratospherically priced. REG has opined in great detail on both of these subjects. I do think he would agree however, that it would make for a fine paperweight although he might point our that those glass bottles on top should probably be considered a potential health hazard even for a paperweight.

Â And of course, it is for his good judgement and unfailing rational approach to all things audio, including cost, that he has a cadre of readers interested in his thoughts. But unless I have missed it, I am not sure REG has ever commented on any personal sonic impressions garnered from a simultaneous side by side comparison of an amp such as the Sanders, and one of the audiophile tube Goliaths such as the ARC Ref 750, on a system of his choosing. Now that might be a very interesting and fun read. My guess however, is that this isn't going to happen anytime soon. What say you, Robert?
