Thread: Accuphase E-800

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    So clearly the only thing you have to add is that Accuphase is too expensive in the US?

    And thats exactly the condition you can expect your new Integrated to arrive in from the Distributor, embarrassing.

    When paying this kind of money the box matters just as much as the component inside... to me at least.

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    The outer box quality certainly leaves a lot to be desired. Inner boxes are more than adequate. I guess they could ship on a pallet but that creates some challenges for residential delivery.

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    In my opinion, an overly critical unbalanced review that does not make sense -- starts out with saying it is a warmer sound but still has all the details and other audiophile attributes. I feel that his impressions were driven by the disproportionately high price of the component in the US (which I agree is a big problem). It also highlights the subjective nature of this hobby where 10 people can rarely agree on anything as we all hear differently.
    I do not have personal experience with the Luxman 590 mk2; so cannot comment on its sound. I have heard only good things about it.
    I do have extensive experience with Accuphase A70, which is a 60 watt Class A amp that I have owned for the past ~ 3 years. It sound sublime and easily drives my Vienna Acoustics The Music speakers. No lack of power here and the bass is all that it needs to be. I am a little puzzled about the reviewer talking about a lack of power.
    I compared it at length to a Gryphon Diablo 300 integrated and decided to keep the Accuphase as it edged out the Gryphon in my system. Just a smoother, more refined, easier to listen to at length sound (the difference was subtle but there).

    Hi Anshul, I agree with your statement. I am using Accuphase A75 with accuphase pre now and these replace Diablo 300. And the sound characteristics are as what you mentioned.

    Having said that, I have not listened to Luxman well-regarded c900u with m900u. And I hope can listen to the luxman combo in near future.

    Here in Singapore, the price of accuphase components are less marked up than in US and US RRP of accuphase left a lot to be desired.
