I believe it is made in Simaudio's Canadian factory.

I only understood half, nevertheless, buckle up:

"Comparison: Hegel Music Systems H160 and Line Magnetic LM-518IA
The Hegel Music Systems H160 ($3500) is a bold mountain climber of an integrated amplifier. Well trained and strong, it conquers your speakers with adolescent eagerness.
But! The H160 plays music with a kind of bourgeois moderation that makes me yearn for a more bohemian libidinousness. Similarly, the Simaudio Moon Neo 340i's well-manicured precision made me wish for an occasional taste of slutty voluptuousness. On those days, I switched to the Line Magnetic LM-518 IA ($4400). Neither the Hegel nor the Simaudio could match my Line Magnetic for brilliant Van Gogh colors, verdant textures, or riotous debauchery."

Herb, if the Maggie's are untenable due to my room limitations, and of the other speakers tested, which did you prefer best with the Sim340i?

I know this is more than a little late but, for what it's worth, this is one heck of a fantastic amp! Did some serious seat time with it last year with a pair of GoldenEar Triton 2+ and Martin Logan Motion 60xti. If I had been in the market for an amp at the time, the smile on my face might have purchased it on the spot. A short critical listen is all it takes, kids!

I picked one up this past December. The sound quality is incredible! I am seriously loving this amp, will definately stick with it for the long haul. I'm using it to power a pair of B&W Matrix 805's and the variable output to drive a B&W ASW 608 subwoofer.

The only (very minor) negatives:
1) As far as I know there's no way to mute the variable output from the amp panel so when I plug my headphones in and press the "Spk Off" button I have to manually turn the volume down on my sub-woofer.
2) I'm using it with a Cambridge CXN V2, unfortunately some of the buttons on the 340 iX remote clash with the CXN V2 (e.g. volume up on the 340 iX button changes the input source on the CXN V2).

I've opened a case with SimAudio on the above, will update my post when I hear back from them. Even if there's no way of resolving these items I'll still stick with the amp. I can control the CXN V2 from my phone or laptop and am using the amp in my office so it's no big deal to reach up to the volume knob.
