Is there anything I should hear before I plunk down hard-earned dough on as many channels as I can afford?

Probably not. They were really onto something with the 550a. I like the 550b's as well, but the Q doesn't seem as wide to me as the 550a's. A set of old Quad 8's might be cool to check out, but they are more gentle than the 550a can be when you push it.

If you can swing it, get a couple of the "a's". And try them on acoustic guitar as well...
