    A picture of my system, the amplifiers on top need to be in cupboard but they produce to much heat.

    for the moment I have harbeth 30.2 with Primaluna Dialogue HP pre and power.
    because I have no listening room my system is placed in living room. The amplifiers need to stand on top of cubboard ... anyway my wife dont like it! Because they are All very new i spoke with dealer and hè offered me the sopra with nuvista part Exchange in terms of financial iT is a good deal but because I m not very experienced is that system also better
    i could buy a bigger cupboard and put amplifiers in cupboard

    If you have enjoyed the Harbeth / Primaluna Dialogue combination then I’d say you are an audiophile who prefers “drama” over “documentary”.

    What do I mean by Drama over documentary? Well, drama lovers tend to like mid-range warmth and fullness and lots of tonal colours. For them, it’s a case of prioritizing musicality over transparency to source or what some term as accuracy. Whereas, documentary lovers tend to like low distortion, transparent and neutral systems. They don’t want any editorial of the music – they just want the facts.

    While I’d solidly place the Harbeth / Primaluna in the drama camp; the Focal / Musical Fidelity is much closer towards the documentary camp and thus I’d be concerned that if you can’t hear the combination before purchase – you might not like it when you finally do!

    With living spaces we sometimes need to compromise with our wife. If the Primaluna tubed amps are driving her crazy, why not consider keeping the Harbeth speakers (which are great) and replacing the Primaluna with a solid state integrated amplifier that leans on the warm side of neutral – perhaps something like a Luxman 509X?

    I’m so sorry that you have to compromise so much. What you have now is exactly how I like to listen to music. Carefree tube amps with a wonderful pair of Harbeth is an awesome combo.

    Accuphase or Luxman would also be a great combo with your Harbeth. But heat build up is a big concern of mine. In properly ventilated cabinets, sure, no problem.

    Pure class A amplifiers from Luxman and Accuphase could be considered but they have their own challenges. First, they generate heat which in an enclosed cupboard could pose a problem. Second, they tend to be physically large. Third, their power output is much lower than class AB, which can be a consideration when driving moderately inefficient speakers.

    Have you considered a hybrid amp i.e. one that uses small tubes in the pre-amp section and solid state in the power amp section?

    Re: Nuvista 600

    In reference to this post and the other two threads just started, you are starting to get in to the "shotgun" approach which is not going to end well. The two speakers you are asking about are different as to their sound profile as are the two integrated amps so what will go well with one might not be the case with the other. Decide on a speaker first and then decide on the amp.

    Re: Nuvista 600

    Thx Jack dont understanding Shotgun mode but I understand what you trying to say.
    I understand sound profile is not same but for me Some days I like fast Some days slow.
    unforunately I m not in a financial position to have more systems. Its diffucult to get home demo s. And in shop listening make no sense cause each room react different with speaker.
    therefore the multiple threads and questions to get hopefully answer or insight, in gear I m maybe intrested in, to narrow the choice, from people who has those systems at home, in stead of answer from sales people who want to sell gear. What I understand. So I was hoping a forum like this was the right place to ask about different options.
