    I was never a fan of the KI stuff.

    Life is too short to worry about the opinion of others.

    'Like previous models the amplifier showed very powerful and balanced sounding, which was especially brightly emphasized during the work with "native" (i.e. from the same firm) CD player. Well, the history of the soft and mighty bass Marantz goes on...'

    Not really sure if they are damning with faint praise there or what but it's a pretty cool looking amp. Never heard one myself.

    I never heard the KI Signature version, but I had the SE version for about 4 years. Nice amp and very well built. Good looking too. But I found it to have a very clean sound but a bit light in the lower end of the presentation. But that may have been down to my Marantz CD player at the time. And the KI Sig is a step beyond again so can only better.

    Iím waiting to hear what you think of it! That is all that counts! It is their deluxe model, they put all their thought into making this one their best effort, I donít see how it could be bad?
