Hifi Rose RA180
Anyone try the Rose RS180 Integrated?
I managed to hear one in the UK (one of the first here) and was really impressed, having not gone head over heels with other Class D amps. I am hoping to get another one back with the Rose 150B as well. My thoughts so far: https://www.hifiwigwa... 
Hattor Audio preamps?
I have a balanced version with the AMRG Trans resistors. I am using it with an ARC Ref 75SE at the moment. It is superbly well built and the remote works really well. It controls volume, input, balance and has a mute. Once set up I am not sure you... 
Amplifiers from the big [expensive] brands in Japan?
Good advice here, and I agree that Luxman are a great amplifier. They are warm but not syrupy, do great 3D solid images, with real weight to bass and enough sparkle to make cymbals sound metallic but not harsh. They are superbly made and will last...

Power amp for Vandersteen Treo?
I recently reviewed the Treos: https://www.hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/149145-vandersteen-treos/ and they worked exceptionally well with ARC Ref 110s. And I found they were well suited to the Nord Class D using a passive preamp from Hattor through ...

Horn Speaker Recommendations
Being a UK-based Wigwam scribe, have you by any chance listened to Simon Mears Audio Uccello's? Yes, they were at one of our annual enthusiasts' shows. I thought they were very good. Not as lively as the La Scalas and may be more suited to classic...
