    Compared to Japan the price of Accuphase is high also in Europe, but I always "enjoyed" the resale value after 4 or 5 years of owning it. (60-65% of original value) Most other brands I owned I had to drop a lot more of the original value after 4/5...

    They are both good amps however both of us felt that the AMP 8 was better. In actuality they are very similar in normal pricing. The Son of Ampzilla II is $4200 and the AMP 8 is $3600.

    I think what people refer to as aural memory, is the level of accuracy over time. The questions is, how well and how accurately can you differentiate between small details. E.g. when switching a cable or adding a tweak, when comparing it to...

    That's good to here specially as the AMP 8 is not much more than half the price of the Son. I've often thought about the AMP 8 but never gone there. Quite happy with the all-in-one I recently bought - saves a ton in cables and sounds great.

    Accuphase is a very rare breed in UK, probably as the distributor doesn't seem to work hard to promote it. The E-800 is offered by a dealer here for £15,000 and in Europe for about Ä15000. Whether prices here will rise I don't know, but it's...

    The sad part is that the E-800 is not better than the Luxman L-590 AXII. I personally know 4 people (well 5 counting myself) who have dumped their E-800 amps after buying into the hype.

    As if this brand isn't already overpriced in the US, Accuphase prices will increase effective 11/1 One example is the E-800 currently listed at $21,500 that will go up to $25,000
