Considering Gryphon Diablo 300 "OR" Simaudio 700iv2 ???
I had a Sim 600i v2 prior to my Gryphon Diablo 300.   The Sim is a good integrated but the Diablo just blows it away.   No contest, get the Diablo.

I also have the Diablo 300.   Best amp I have ever had in my house and I have been through many.   I leave mine on all the time.   What do you guys think about that ? Are you doing the same thing ?   What does the manufacturer suggest ?

VAC 160iSE integrated with NOLA speakers
I use the VAC 160I with Sonus Faber Minima Vintage Speakers and it is fantastic.

Sonus Faber Minima Vintage v/s Cremona Auditor

Accuphase E-560 versus VAC Sigma 160i
I guess I am a little biased since I own the VAC Sigma 160i. It has made me stop looking for amps, at least for now. Haha. It is just a fantastic amp. Not the classic tube sound, just supremely musical and no fatigue at all. It sounds great across... 
Best Tube Amp/Preamp combination with Quad 2805s
I have the VAC sigma with a pair of Quad 57's. It is probably more power then I need but it sounds fantastic. It is a great amp and very musical. With the 2805's it would sound great. 
Biasing VTL Triode-25's Older Version
I have had those amps in the past. Just unscrew all the little screws and remove the Red chassis. The trim pots are underneath. You can't miss them. Biasing is straightforward. Getting the screw holes to line up when you put it back to gether is a...

What is better Mono or Stereo ? 
ICEPower vs SET
I had the same experience a few years back with a Bel Canto Digital Amp. With my CD source it sounded very good but with vinyl it sounded terrible. I was running a VTL 5.5 pre at the time.

Comments about Nottingham quirks
I have not read this review but I have owned five different Nottingham models. Notts are great tables even the entry level models which I have had. This reviewer obviously needs to find another job.

Nottingham Interspace Jr. $1900. Spend a few extra bucks you will not regret it. It blows away everything on your list.
