I got the 1611 on yur recommend. The A10.2 does different things well than the A7.3. I prefer the A7.3 and will add helper woofer if the desire to get back what the A10.2 does better.

I've wanted to try it for a long time, although I'm in no particular hurry as I have no space in my home for OBs. I may be able to try it on an experimental basis sometime in the near future if I'm lucky, maybe over the summer.

I own all three. Compared to the A7 and A10, the TB just doesn't have the same zip. It doesn't hold my attention like the Alpairs do. Now understand that I drive my speakers with a good T-amp. What you tube guys hear may be different.

As to ranking the two Alpairs, the A7 is hands down better with a sub. The A10 is true stand-alone and I guess that is why I have the A10s in my 2-ch setup now.

BINGO to the 7.3 / 10.2 "comparison"

Bob, your TP60 is no doubt a superior sounding T-amp the TP30, or Kingrex T20, which are my personal frame of reference. What us "tube guys" (think we) hear can vary widely depending on the amps topology (and our expectations) - I have a range from DHT (2A3) to EL34 SE to EL84 P/P pentode, and they all sound different from each other on any speaker.

I've not ventured to take the cover off my Denon HT receiver, out of curiosity, it's time to ask if anyone knows for sure what type of output device/topology such current models of receivers employ? When you have 5 or more channels of 75W power in a compact and fairly cool running component weighing in at only 20lbs or so, it's hard not to think "some type of digital" - particularly from folks like Denon or Sony.
