Octave V70SE to drive Martin Logan Summits?
Jon-Where are you located? Your best bet is to find a dealer that will allow you to an in-home demo as there are very few units of this new model in the market. (We have customers utilizing the fantastic V70SE with both Dynaudio Sapphires and C1 b... 
soulution owners cables recomendations?
We have upgraded, probably not what you want to hear, on our demo system from Valhalla to Odin and have not looked back since. Pricey but worth the freight in terms of performance results.Cheers,Tyler - Next Level AVChicago Suburbs 
Amplifier suggestion for Dynaudio Sapphire
We are fortunate to probably have sold more Sapphires than any other dealer in the world. That being said, with our experience we have found numerous different synergistic combinations. Certainly, like all Dynaudio loudspeakers, you need clean hig...

Anyone using Octave amps or preamps?
We have on display and sold several of the integrated units. The V40SE ($4.9k) and V80 have done really well because of their value and overall performance. There is a new V70SE integrated that is coming out very soon which will have the same feat... 
Arcam AVR500 vs. AVR600?
