I have yet to hear an amp that sounds as veluptuous as the AJ. It has smooth, big, rounded midrange and sweet highs. Very romantic amp. Should have stopped with it. All other Pass amps i have heard are cleaner and sharper. An F4 has no identity in theory, as ZM stated. Find you a qaida pre or feed it from AJ outputs in a bi-amp configuration.

Bought the Loveltechs, but never built it. May try it with new horn setup, as amplification needs will change.
