I stumbled upona website advertising ICEpower amps direct from the factory in Denmark. The eAR 1001-REF (1000w into 4 ohms) is listed at "Sale price" 840 euros each. Seems similar to the bel canto ref1000's but a lot cheaper, even with postage and import duty (not sure what that would be from within the EU)
Anyone heard of Acoustic Reality from Denmark - not sure if it is allowed to post a link to the website, so I won't but it's easy Googled. I cannot find much info on them, other than reviews on their own site.
