I am critical of audio publications that spend far too much page count reviewing ridiculously expensive hardware, so it's only fair to say thank you when S&V reviews equipment in this price range.

A cheaper Tube amp would be intriguing from this company.. Perhaps a Tube Integrated ..

Emotiva needs to build a Streamer with MQA and a switchable Tube section.. They would breakthrough with a product like this..

Now that it's been a year, do you feel like there is a better option or version of this system now? I'm hoping for a Kaleidescape for Christmas and I want to be sure I get the right speakers.
