    New Progression Amp - Integrated

    Happy brand owner and supporter, however, while the new Integrated is feature rich, IMO it is lacking in aesthetics.

    Design and taste are subjective. With that stated, I’m scratching my head on this one.

    Cosmetics have been changed for the better IMO. Anyone have experience with this on Magico? More specifically A3s?

    Source input labels is old-school. LCD and dynamic labels have only been around for 10+ years.

    Re: New Progression Amp - Integrated

    I have upgraded from McIntosh Integrated to Progression.

    I got mine recently, paired with Sonusfaber Olympica 1 speakers right now.
    Using Siltech Cables [Speakers and Interconnects], Power [Shunyata].

    Very Impressive.

    Re: New Progression Amp - Integrated

    What's with putting the speakers on the same table top as the electronics. That's a Singapore apartment living thing?

    Re: New Progression Amp - Integrated

    My local Wilson dealer has the Momentum integrated connected to SabrinaXes and it's a super match. They are usually driven by Luxman which is no slouch, but the Momentum elevates everything to a higher level: transparency, resolution, drive and esp the bass. We used the outboard Luxman phono stage for the compare, his demo Momentum didn't have the optional DAC or phono.
