I have been a fan of tube amps for awhile, that is until I'very met Bryston 3B3. I have been using Harbeth 7pes3 with Primauna with great result but I thought there was something missing.... it was easy to listen but was lacking some excitement? I was just looking to upgrade the sound a bit and came MDAC+ with improvements overall but still not quite there hence came in 3B3 and the difference was very significantly better. Then, came custom built speakers with Dynaudio with12" 3way with Tidal music player just did it. Such a confident sound only a large driver can provide with absolutely neutral music you can listen to hours at a time. I have spent numerous hours fine tuning speaker port configuration but at the end it was worth it! Not too bright nor harsh but just correct with Improvements to both of my speakers performance, without a doubt. Enthusiastically recommended!
