Simaudio i7 integrated with Merlim VSMs...?

The i7 would seem to fit all my needs from a connectivity standpoint, and the descriptions I've heard of it seem to be up my alley (musical, crisp highs, a slightly warm midrange).

Can anyone comment on the potential of this combination? If not, can anyone provide me with general impressions of the i7?

Many thanks in advance...
Bobby P. is the man to ask. He has previously recommended SIM equipment for SS and apparently there are quite a few people using the combination.
