Did anyone hear the brand new hybrid amp from ARC at T.H.E Show? Did they mention anything about how it compares to their all tube designs (REF110, etc).

I have no idea of any comparisons (since none were offered) but the combination with the Vandy 5s was one of the sweetest, most balanced sounds I heard at CES.

What are the intrinsic characteristics of the Vandy 5's? Warm? Lean? Spacious? I have a pair of Paradigm S8's (which I love, even when compared with $$$$$$ models) and I wonder if this amp will do them justice.
