I can relate most to the observation by this reviewer:
The Muse 160 ended a two year amp search that included all the amps listed above. Before the Muse I owned the Audioprism for 8 months but neither the dealer nor the manufacturer could get it to work reliably. I'll admit an anti-tube bias as a result of this experience. The VTL was a long term loaner. Only heard the VTL with Sovtek EL34WXT so I don't think I heard its best. Also tried the McCormack but felt it was very dry and two-dimensional. Great bass, though.
The Muse 160 gives me the smoothness I liked about the tube amps, plus greater detail and intelligibility of instrumental and vocal lines. Much is made of tube clipping characteristics but I prefer an amp with enough power that I won't run it to clipping. I run the Muse from 65hz up so 160 watts is plenty of power. Have never heard it clip or become harsh at all, even at quite high levels.
I would recommend the Muse to listeners who value reliability as well as good sound. I like to be totally relaxed about my system and just enjoy the music. I expect no problems leaving the Muse powered up almost continuously for the next twenty years. (I tend to keep components at least 10 years unless there is a problem.)
Audition by Appointment Only.
