    Please drop me from the loaner. I've got too much going on right now. I'll eventually just buy one for myself anyways.

    Sadly, my time with #2 is up, just PM'd @ohmaigulay.

    I wish I could have tried dual mono, to see if it would have made the bass more solid, which is my only complaint with the single Aegir I tried. The Focal Electra 1008be in a very deep room are too much for it.
    The Anthem MCA 20 does better down low and overall projects a slightly bigger sound. Also, the auto power-on feature is just great for my TV setup (I can't trust the GF to turn off the Aegir after watching TV... :oops:).
    Those two things aside, the Aegir was quite a bit more enjoyable to listen to. The amp's liquidity is just yummy :cool: and the tonal balance seems just right with the bright Electras.

    I'm definitely considering getting one (or two :rolleyes:)!

    Aegir #1 received. I'm a little confused by the roster - who's it go to next? Paging @ChaChaRealSmooth

    It seems that the tour is over when @E_Schaaf and @ohmaigulay finish evaluations. Then both Aegirs #1 and #2 should return to Marv's place, I believe.

    Eager to experience Aegir x2 if allowed. But logistics may favor shorter moving distances within CA.

    If you are trying to dual mono aegir - are you just listening on headphones again? If so, might not be an ideal setup.

    x2 Aegir loaner can be arranged if you want to pay for shipping both ways.

    Thanks but never mind. Just realized shipping too much for such a couple of heavy masses. Better find another chance locally.

    Then, may I? ;)
    I feel the Focals would benefit from more power in my big room :(

    @Clemmaster absolutely! Just let the members who have the Aegir loaners know.
