    Re: Accuphase E-800

    The accuphase E-800 may end being a great integrated.
    But the distributor mark up is insane. I would never buy product marked up that much, no matter how exclusive it is.
    I wish that luxman, pass or gryphon will come up with class A reference integrated with at least 50w 8 ohm and double at 4 ohm
    so it can drive wider range of speakers.

    The Luxman 590 benches at 83 watts of class A. See the measurements in HiFi News. They said it was woefully under specíd. Very conservative. Iíve had one and it drove the piss out of everything.

    This does not look to be anything new. Look at this snippet from 2012

    Thank you everyone for your responses. I read some similar threads and Accuphase seems to be the most favored although Luxman should be shown no disrespect. I got a quote on a new Accuphase e-360 for 10 grand. Whew, I certainly can't afford a new one so I'll be searching for something used.

    Wow, that's over double the price of a new E-360 in Japan. Thanks!

    Sure..you could do this but think about what you would lose...no warranty for any problem. Interesting that you don't suggest the same solutions on another forum where you moderate....
    hmm... maybe because the owner is an Accuphase dealer and your thick as thieves?

    Out of respect for Mike and Joe I am going to keep this civil. I never claimed I was an expert, know it all etc. Far from it. I only know what my ears have heard and liked. I have heard 3 different Accuphase INT's in the past few years and its not the sound I prefer for my musical tastes. Feel the same way about Audio Note. They don't "Rock" to my liking. There is no right or wrong with anybody's opinion about what they prefer. If I had your Ears and musical taste Im sure I would LOVE Accuphase. I know at least half a dozen people who owned Accuphase gear and they ended up ditching it for Luxman, Simaudio, Shindo, Doshi and other brands I cant remember.

    Gene.......My post was simply a suggestion for those interested in being able to control supply voltages, nothing more. I would have no issue posting the same information on any forum if the discussion turned to supply voltage issues. It is self evident there would be no warranty on 100VAC Accuphase components sold in the USA. Doh!

    The remainder of your comments are uncalled for, but not surprising. The Internet is run amok with self appointed keyboard generals. We don't know each other, so I don't have a clue where your rancor is coming from. I do find it interesting that in your nearly four and a half years as an Audio Shark member with a grand total of 105 posts you decided I was important enough to spur you to increase your forum contributions. It's good to know I still have the ability to motivate people.
