I think its on the warmer side. To be honest, the more I'm reading different reviews, I am getting more confused. It seems Hegel is a highly praised amp that many people use / used as reference. I was leaning towards it, but then i'm little unsure if the too clean and neutral sound will become less engaging or involving (comparitively). I am no critique, I am just a music lover who wants to enjoy his music everyday.

IMO. It's a synergy thing. The R Series is quite warm and smooth works well with a clean, neutral amp. If you had Focal, I would say that the warmer amp would be a good match.....but personal preference always trumps perceived wisdom.
