Yeah the title sort of reveals the type of amps.

I'm getting more and more impressed with this new system. Both amps and speakers have developed properly and amongst other factors detail and resolution is very impressive. Big difference when goes from digital to analog source. I'm hearing more in each and every recording, and lots of fun finding this in material I know very good. Instruments are very easily to follow, and I can choose what instrument I want to focus on. I'm very aware to cost per watt is pretty high with these amps, but to me it's very much worth it.
I think I had pretty nice setup earlier, but it is those small steps in the right direction that drives guys like us, and I'm getting quality back for the investment. It's kinda of fun to be the only owner of this version, but to any lurkers, go for it.

I have a question though, when close to clipping, would the OA3 start pulsating? I have noticed this when I turn volume to between 2 or 3 o'clock so to speak? Not sure what is the max setting. I'm using stepped attenuators. Can't her any noticeable clipping tendency at that point, but wanted to ask if any of guys would know.

Not many bought the 2008 version either from what I could tell.  In regards to the OA3...I think that happened when playing the Omega Alinco Super 7XRS at 93dB too loud but I never have seen it with the Zu Audio "Souls" at 99 dB.  With the "Souls" there's plenty of headroom. Mark.

PS...thinking about it I may have seen a flickering Rectifier with clipping with the Taboo MK III...it could never provide adequate volume with the Omegas.  It's been so long, can't remember.  The answer is that tubes can flicker when clipping occurs.
