    Big plus 1. I totally agree. There certainly could be times, depending on speakers, some would prefer the Accuphase, but for me the Luxman has been stellar on everything Iíve paired with it.

    Well apparently Nelson doesn't agree with your assessment and based on his history and the rave reviews of his products for decades he does know what he is doing.

    Hi Bhaskar, Iíd have to qualify my answer. If used only for very efficient speakers like my Avantgarde, the MQ300 can not be beat. Tubes absolutely rule in this case. If you have a variety of speakers and some need power, the 590 is...

    Make sure the iPad and the Aurender are both on the same network and one is not 2.4 and the other 5 ghz. When you shut down and re-boot everything again leave the iPad shut down until everything else is up.

    No he bought the T+A when the Vitus never was released and for a customer outside the immediate confines of the EU a much smarter move then and maybe still now in terms of service and support.

    That certainly does seem outside the pricing norm for him so I assume we are missing something with the parts cost or the amount of labor involved.

    Without hearing them side by side in the same system making the blanket assumption that a SIA30 would best the top T+A is quite a stretch. Why because it cost more.

    Hi Jack

    I need a recommendation.
    I want to buy an amp for my spatial m3 turbo s
    Based on your experience. The stereo or mono north nc500 is there the best candidate ?
    There are some choices like Ps audio stellar 300 ,Odyssey kismet, Red Dragon s500.

    My pream is a Doge 8 lp* gain 10v* impedance output* 600 ohm


    Thank you
    Sebastien
