It's been a while since we talked about our amplifiers (23 months in fact). So we'd like to know what you are using now and why you like it.

I have a McCormack DNA.5 power amp driving double stacked Advents. This, with the Adcom GFP-565 preamp, really opens up the Advents sound

I Love it, because I've made it myself, and it is so totally great that I couldn't think of anything else!!
