Jolida tube amp smoothness works well with Morrow Audio cable clarity and soundstage. The Focal speakers transmit that smooth clarity and soundstage beautifully - at least to my ears. A lot of people think Focals are too bright. They probably are when connected to many brands of solid state amps. The Jolida tube amp combined with Morrow Audio cabling seems to smooth out the Focals - keeping the good bits and stopping any harshness. By the way, Morrow Audio sells Jolida (Maryland) equipment.
