=D> \:D/ =D> Welcome and merry Christmas!! =D> \:D/ =D> Both are good amplifiers, which one is going to sound "better" is really going to be a personal preference. I really like the M-1.5t on my Klipsch speakers. The M-1.0t is a decent amp, not sure I'd spend the money on upgrades myself, money would be better off spent on Sunfire gear in my opinion if you need more power. Good luck on your venture!!

I think someone here on the forum has a pair of the big Kappas...don't recall what they're driving them eith, but I'm sure could provide some valuable info for you....

From FrankieD's lips to your ears: Sunfire - a quiet box of endless power.

Didn't DaveS buy them from RobertR two CF's ago or was that another speaker?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
