    This amp has been burning in since we got it. Sat down and listened this morning. WOW. I love this amp. The soundstage after 250+ hours now has really opened up. So much more punch and dynamics over the old m900u. Still the same great midrange...

    The 800D4 series is dead nuts neutral and more bottom up then top down Vs the old series. It’s exceedingly musical. Magico speakers vary so much from A to S to M that it’s hard to pinpoint. The S is probably the closest sonically to the...

    I’m glad you’re doing what you feel is best. It would have been good to give the A5’s more time, but it’s up to you. It’s bizarre to me that a B&W dealer would try to talk you out of the 801D4’s. They are an amazing speaker. The A5’s are...

    Sorry for dropping you this message out of the blue. Would like to see if you still have your Cary 306 Pro since I am interested in getting one but not sure about its reliability, or worthy to get a CPO unit from Cary. Hopefully you wouldn’t mind sharing some insight.
    Thanks in advance.
