I wonder what the 'amplifier experts' have to say about this amplifier? Probably sucks, right?

In the interest of keeping things honest and to the best of my knowledge, the VTL MB-1250 Wotan rated at 1250 wpc were the biggest, baddest hifi tube amps ever built.

That said, I'm sure Bob's new amps sound as glorious as his other tube amps. Sure look purdy too.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."
