    Re: Integrated amplifier for Scansonic MB-2.5

    So, in that case I will keep Hegel H160 still at the top of my list.
    2. can be Naim Supernait 2 or Nait Superuniti (which is more expensive but seems better for digital).
    3. Musical Fidelity M6si
    4. McIntosh MA5200
    5.
    Primare I32

    Any other suggestions or opinions?

    Of course I will need a pair of good speaker cable for system as well. But it should be
    also in budget section as other components...
    Do you know what cable using internal cabling of Scansonic MB series? Should I go with what's inside ? or is there some other options which you had good results with these speakers?

    I would love to learn from your experinces about cable subject too, but my priority is deciding over amplifier as first step..

    Looking forward to hearing from you


    Cheers !!

    Unfortunately not yet I am planning to finish this up until end of this year.
    Still searching for possible other options, but so far I am seriously thinking about Naim Superuniti..

    Re: Integrated amplifier for Scansonic MB-2.5

    Hello there...

    Actually I could not get whole system yet, but started from speakers.. And unfortunately I could not buy Scansonic MB-2.5. I have just decided to get them and tried to contact with dealer in my country, but I could not. Somehow he was unreachable. Their place was closed and could not get any response for my calls and mails.
    After that I started to looking for another speaker option. Anyway, I was about to buy New Dynaudio Focus XD 20 active speakers, but it ended up with Dynaudio Contour 20.
    And right now I am in same dilemma... Which amplifier ?

    Dealer has 3 integrated amplifier at demo. Hegel H160, Naim Nait XS and Devialet 400. Devialet was doing wonderful job with Contours, I really really liked it. Naim was also quite good. But Hegel's bass quality was not good as others.

    Frankly speaking Devialet 400 was overkill for contours, I believe even Devialet 120 or Expert 130 pro would be so good with my stand mounted speakers.
    And instead of Naim Nait XS, Naim Supernait 2 would be much better option I suppose ( as a result supernait has better structure and higher power output, also have DR power supply which is a huge plus ) The other hand, If I go with supernait, I will need a proper dac and also good interconnects, and that means I need to spend more money which is currently my main concern.
    With Devialet I will not need a DAC, because it already have a great DAC and also a very good "Phono Stage". And of course it will be more expensive than Naim. I am not so sure but I believe result will be better.
    The other hand I did not have any chance to listen contours with none of these so far. Because I could not bring together any of those amplifers ( Devialet 120 & Devialet Exper 130 Pro or Naim Supernait 2 & Naim Superuniti ) with my speakers. And it seems that will not be possible anytime soon. But the other hand I am driving my speakers with a very entry level Marantz A/V reciever, and I wanna buy a new amplifier asap.

    I am planning to buy an integrated set, that's for sure... And I would prefer an amp which has all in the case like Devialet.
    So, do you have any experiences with Dynaudio Contour 20, or any recommendations for new amplifier options for these speakers? My budget will not be more than 3500-4000 USD or EUROS (That's why I am considering to buy maybe Devialet 120, not Expert 130 Pro)

    I will wait for your comments and suggestions.

    Cheers !!

    Re: Integrated amplifier for Scansonic MB-2.5

    Capybara - Back when I had Dyn C1's and Signatures I really liked the Octave V70se and Naim SN2. But considering you'll need a dac I'll suggest the Devialet. A very good sounding unit with a good dac that's built in. I'm not impressed with the Hegel after Axpona this year. I had the Naim nDac back when I had the Dyn's and although it's very good (especially with an external P/S) it can be quite expensive. As far as the Devialet I don't think the 400 is overkill (Dyn's love good clean power).

    Re: Integrated amplifier for Scansonic MB-2.5

    Thank you for your reply George.. Yesterday I purchased Devialet Expert 120. So, I ended up with a very different configuration than I was planning to buy at the beginning. Hopefully I will be very happy after all burning in period of equipments. But even right now I can say that they don't sounds bad even at day-1 ...
