Well said Thomas, how about a Quad with electrostatic speakers?
I used to own a pair of Quad II amps once. They were beautiful amps. Never got along with electrostatic speakers of any kind, though. I like rhythm a lot, and most, if not all, electrostatic speakers I have heard fall flat on their nose when you play reggae or ska. That includes the Martin Logan CLX, by the way...
