Well, I always want the best sound possible. My experience has been every decade has seen notable advances in sound quality of most components. The Primare sounds like a more contemporary, higher powered and likely better sounding amp.
I am an old fart. I went through a transition that took about a year from I do all stuff myself to I get someone else to lift anything heavy… and for that matter to do anything I don’t want to do. So, I don’t pay attention things like weight.
I don’t see my Chiropractor much any more… while I liked seeing her, I am saving a lot of money and my back is in better shape.
