Accuphase vs Luxman vs Sansui

28 posts in this topic

Mmmm, I'm wondering if this weekend will be long enough.  The Accuphase via its internal DAC is truly high end and has this awesomely smooth rhythm and addictive PRAT in the bottom end but the Sansui 907NRA via the Accuphase internal DAC is a different flavor of high end.  The top end is so clean and clear and open and somehow manages to be to sound what the aroma of fresh morning due is to smell.  


This could take some time.

Have to say I have never come across somebody that has a high end integrated amp that they keep to use as a DAC. :party

Well, that's not the only reason, it also just happens to be an excellent integrated in its own right.  


Also, I was trying to keep the playing field level, I can't compare two amps on totally different DACS.  That just wouldn't be fair.


I see your point though, if anyone was likely to do that it would probably be me.

      I understand that his topic has been dealt with extensively, however there is question that I cannot find an answer to.
      Magnepans are known to like high current amplifiers. I am sure high current air a good thing when playing at loud levels, but would the high-current capability make any significant difference at low to medium volumes? 
      With my maggies, I have owned several amplifiers, some of which had very high current, some not so much. However I have never noticed massive differences in sound when playing at low volumes.
      What is your experience?

      These have a smooth and relaxed presentation, also fairly powerful. They have a refined treble especially.

      I have the original box for the pre amp and a Musical Fidelity M8 box for the power amp.

      There's a slight mark to the left of the pre amp led, which I tried to show in the last picture. It isn't easily visible.

      I have a complete commercial Theater System that im trying to get a fair price indication to sell. 
      it is obviously too big for a home theatre setup but a night club or a big Shed would be perfect.
      any advice on what to do with it would be great
