  1. Re: How would you compare Luxman to Accuphase house sound?

    Who cares if the resale of Marantz gear is low. I buy what sounds good to me, not what the resale value is if I decide to sell it in a few years. The KI Ruby integrated is not like their cheaper...
  2. Re: How would you compare Luxman to Accuphase house sound?

    A few others to consider are the Marantz Ref. PM-10 and the PM-KI Ruby. I love the tone of the higher end Marantz gear. They do piano so beautifully. I find the midrange and tone of Marantz to be...
  3. Re: How would you compare Luxman to Accuphase house sound?

    I got to audition the Luxman 509 with Wilson Sabrina speakers and a Chord Qutest DAC and then compare it to my son's Cary Audio SI-300.2d integrated. We preferred the Cary. The Luxman had a more...

    Re: B&W 801D4 review

    Exactly! It drives me nuts when I see people telling people that want to get Magnepans that a 50 wpc amp will sound great with them. It may sound good but Maggie tweeters dip down to 1.9 to 2 ohms....

    Re: Those are for sale ... Dali Oberon 9

    My son and I heard a few Dali rooms at the last RMAF and we thought they were some of the best sounding rooms at the show. We came away very impressed.

    Re: Magnepan Owners? Your favorite amplifier?

    It will relieve the amp a little but I like to run my Maggies full range. I like the bass that they put out. I think that you take away part of the Maggie sound by removing bass but that is just my...

    Re: Magnepan Owners? Your favorite amplifier?

    Those Carver amps put out 400 wpc at 4 ohms and can handle 1 ohm. They should be fine with the 3.7i's. For 20.7's I would go with more power although the amps would be OK with the 20.7's.

    Re: Avoid the snake oil

    I took it as trust your ears and trust your local dealer.

    Double blind tests are good, but I do not need one to tell me what piece of equipment sounds better to me.

    Re: LPS vs ifi iPower x

    You can always sell the power X. I am sure it would sell fast. Power supplies though are going to be system dependent.

    Re: LPS vs ifi iPower x

    I bought an ifi iPower x for my son to use with his Chord Qutest DAC and it made a very noticeable difference in clarity and detail. It was like a veil was lifted compared to the stock walwart. I...

  15. Re: X260.8 runs in class A for the first 34,68 or 17 watts?

    So what about a class A amp like the XA60.8 which is 60 wpc Class A at 8 ohms and doubles its power at 4 ohms. Is it 120 wpc Class A?

    As far as the meters are concerned, the meter on my X250 amp...

    Re: Help build my list of amps to try

    I would consider a pair of Van Alstine DVA 225 monoblocks. They are small and pack a punch. I did a review of them on the AC forum for Frank. There are 2 excellent pro reviews. They only have XLR...

    Re: Magnepan Owners? Your favorite amplifier?

    Compared to the Pass it was relatively speaking. The PS Audio 700m's also sounded much better as well as several Van Alstine amps that I reviewed and compared to the A21.

    Re: Magnepan Owners? Your favorite amplifier?

    I run my 1.6's with a Pass X250 amp. I used to use a Parasound A21 which sounded midfi in comparison. Preamp is a tube BAT VK51se.

    True but quite a few people run them with Maggies and Magnepan themselves recommend the pairing. There is a woman on the AC forum that has the 20.7's with Bryston and loves that combo.

    Re: ARC 160M Monoblocks for Maggie 20.7?

    The best amps for Magnepan's are high capacitance, high current, voltage and power. Stick with the Bryston amps you were looking at or get a Pass X350.8. I love the combination of Pass and...
