The thread starts:  I had the opportunity to listen to B&W 802D's fed by Classe monoblocks, for the second time. anybody that knows, knows that I lust after those 802's like an addict lusts after the next fix. but for the second time, I was left disapponted by classe mono blocks coonected to 802's!!!! yes the sound stage is excellent, the space between the instruments is excellent, the voice is centered and i could hear subtle cues and more detail and the amp were not struggling and more more...but I kept wondering, but where's the music? i have heard the 802 on a parasound amp, boy oh boy, that is better than the best orgasm you have had! I'm not taking a dig at highend and excuse me if I come across as doing so, but is highend all about cold mathematical analysis than good all musical magic?!! I want to hear music and want to tap my foot more than I'm concerned about the placing of the cymbal!!
