On the pro end, probably the PM 600. Home version, I'd say the 500t, although the 500t has quite a bit more output at 4 ohms....
Too much stuff to keep track of... Currently enjoying Legacy Focus 20/20 pair driven by McCormack DNA 225, BillD C1, and Oppo 105.

Am I wrong? I thought the M1.0 was strongly related to the M400 in design, but packaged in a long/narrow box rather than the "cube". If I understand this correctly, the M1.0 would be similar to the M400 but more "rack friendly".
No longer desperately adding to my post count by any means available.

The M1.0t has significantly more power than the M400
So much Carver gear, so little money.

The 1.0t is commonly believed to be significantly under rated, in order to fit into the numerical sequence of the "point T" line up... As Peck said, much more powerful:-)
