Anyone compare Levinson 436 to Parasound Halo JC1
I own a Levinson 436 and was thinking of buying a few more for home theater and stereo listening. I thought I would take a shot at the JC1 to see if it was a giant killer (half the price of Levinson). Here are the results of my shootout...I did a ... 
Bidat vs. Perfecwave MSB Playback Design
I thought I would chime in on the preamp debate. I can understand how Vhiner might experience better sound using a tube preamp with the Biddat if in fact the volume control is flawed on the Biddat. On the other hand, a preamp in the playback chain... 
Bidat vs. Perfecwave MSB Playback Design

I have not heard the Pass Amps as of yet but plan to do so. So far. The 436 is the best sounding amp I've ever had in my system. I've had other great amps like Ayre V1XE but still preferred the 436 
Levinson 333 Upgrad to 436 Monoblock
I have the 436 paired with Totem Sig Mani 2's. The combination is amazing and I've tried some other amps like Ayre V1-Xe. The Mani 2's share the same drivers as the Totem 1 so they should sound similar.

Levinson 436 mono amp power cord
I made my own cord using slim Furutech IEC connectors. This one fits perfectly. Not Furutech's greatest IEC connector but I'm happy.
