Does anyone have any views on these new monoblocks? I can't get onto Quad's website at the moment, but a recent review in HiFi World was positive and stated they used Quad's tried and tested current dumping design. The Elite series is not Quad's top 'Platinum' range, but given that the Elite stereo amp is the slightly tweaked replacement for the 909, it seems reasonable to assume these monoblocks could be 909s on steroids. The review found them to sound a touch warm and expansive (Quad's pipe 'n' slipper trademark), which I like and want to preserve, but with the ability to drive Sonus Faber Cremonas properly. They're rated at 260W in to 8 ohms.
