    Re: Accuphase Class A or A/B???

    Magico says "no problem". Besides Accuphase always rates power output very conservatively. You can basically almost double the numbers.
    Check out this tech info,page five and you'll understand.

    whats your room size? the thing with magico and other speakers of its sensitivity is yeah a 50watt SET (for example, i know the accuphase isn't a SET) will drive them and it can sound very nice. but you really owe it to yourself to try a big watt amp on them. maybe you won't like it BUT the magicos can eat up all the power you give them and do some stunning things with it. again different, but at this price point and pairing its worth exploring

    Class A of course.
    They are better. Because they heat cats more efficiently.

    Re: Accuphase Class A or A/B???

    Something extremely pleasant with Accuphase class A amps is the fact that they never sound harsh or agressive no matter the volume, while being extremely punchy and alive. That is something rather common with most well made class A amps, tube or solid state, but I noticed that Accuphase class A amps really sound exciting at the same time.
    Velvet touch and dynamic.
    I have not in home experience of Accuphase class AB amps. During hifi shows demos, they did not impress me enough to leave me with any kind of opinion about them.
