  1. Ooh, that's a deadset bargain for the appropriate Accuphase owners. It's the current model, so good luck finding another one at this price! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  2. I especially like the mk4 running 71/2 and 15 ips. Is it a quarter or half track machine?
  3. Heard the Elysian floorstanders at the Vietnam hiend show last year in a good sized room and they were indeed very impressive. Just my 2c.
  4. ...and another 2c worth: As you already have (and, I assume, enjoy?) Audioengine products, their HD6 speakers are a very cost effective way to upgrade your system. I'd also second the 'leave vinyl alone for now' advice unless you have a large record collection. It's a steep and slippery slope, and you already have the bug. Good luck! It's a fascinating way to spend your hard-earned.
  5. ...and then of course there's Class A and ACCUPHASE Class A.
  6. Hot? Time to move to Cambodia for a reality check! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7. Heh heh, and Accuphase have just released a new model, the E-800 integrated. Mmm, 50w class A into 8ohms, doubling down to 1ohm, etc. That 50w extends to 90w before it starts to clip... And of course that's _each_ channel with _both_ channels driven. Fully balanced from go to whoa (of course). I'm salivating just writing about it ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘. How are the gutters? ๐Ÿ˜
  8. Oh, dribble... I have the A77 mk4, the B77 was a cut above. Being a 2track, the quality of recordings can only be delicious. These things were built to last.
  9. Careful. The A1 does run hot, and considering where you live...
  10. Agreed. This is bargain territory for anyone wanting to get into vinyl.
  11. This model is not an Accuphase class A integrated. E-650 is the current (apologies for the pun) class A integrated, E-600 and E-560 are the previous models. Their class A amps are rated down to 1 ohm, thus the โ€˜currentโ€™ pun... Regardless, the E-470 is a quality amp, but it simply ainโ€™t one of their class A models.
  12. Campfire Audio Special Edition Gold. Iโ€™ve been a fan of Sennheiser for many years, but these are amazing, the best Iโ€™ve ever heard by a country mile. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  13. They're excellent amps with plenty of power for difficult speakers. The power supply is strong, and the pretty coloured lights in the amp simplify tracking any fault. Good luck!
  14. Well Marc, I'm impressed. I read many of David Price's reviews over the years in Hifi World. 'Nuff said. Congratulations, and best wishes for a (nother) fantastic show. Rusty
  15. I've never had success with noise canceling headphones, which is why I use iem's on planes. The Campfire Audio Andromeda Special Edition Gold that I bought in HK recently rely on your using the correct tips to seal the ear canal, which then creates an amazing soundstage. Sealed ear canal equals noise reduction. Expensive, yes. Extraordinary sound quality, yes. Surprisingly comfortable, yes. Selling like hot cakes, yes.
