Chapman & Wells Audio Fall in Love

Speaker manufacturer Chapman was demming the T-8 Mk.II ($9995/pair) with the 120Wpc Innamorata solid-state amplifier from a Californian company new to me, Wells Audio. The hefty three-way T-8 (it weighs 100 lbs) combines a 10” polyaminate-fiber cone woofer with a 5.5” midrange unit and a 1” silk-dome tweeter. Frequency response is specified as 28Hz–30kHz, ±3dB, sensitivity as 89dB/W/m, and Chapman claims it specifies all the drivers to within ±.025dB. The Innamorata is heavily biased into class-A and features Jack Bybee’s “Music Rails” to lower its noisefloor. According to Wells, “innamorata” is Italian for “to cause to fall in love” and the sound in this room, wired with Dana cables, was indeed seductive.

I am intrigued by the Innamorata amplifier's "music rails" solution to RFI, especially considering the price: $6000 

Looks like a nice, solid system that is not in the stratosphere, price-wise.
