I was running the TFM-35x just before swapping in the 55 and I was floored by how open and transparent the mids and highs are with this amplifier! I think I may have a new favorite Carver amp!
You will till you try the 75!!! ...The 55 is a very good amp ...I known...believe me!

I've got the Decc-o tubed pre running the 55 now and re-listening to a lot of the songs I've been playing over the last few days and can't believe the difference I'm hearing. It's literally like going from a Sunfire 300x2 to a 600x2 in midrange presentation and upper end detail.
If you can provide the amps you are correct!
I hate you, JJ... ...now I "need" to get a 55 (refurbed preferred... ), or a 600x2 and since a 55 is a LOT cheaper... Damn, it NEVER ends....
