  3. And I was worried I wouldn’t get much of a response! Quite a bit to check out there. Budget is probably around the 5K mark. Current amps are a couple of Emotiva XPR-2, speakers are Pioneer S-1EX. The speakers are definitely staying. Thanks for all the help, from what has been said so far, will probably check out Arcam (Perth dealer?), “the local guy†and may look at Hypex. Wrt Hypex how similar in sound are the UcD vs nc400, may give the UcD’s a go and if I don’t love them they would be sufficient for driving surround speakers. Again, thanks for all the help.
  4. I am looking to replace some class A amps, not because I don’t like them but for practical considerations. But, having been spoilt by them, am struggling with where to go next. The issue – we have one living space that is used for listening to music, watching TV/movies but also provides background/ambient music during the evening. It is the later that causes the issue. Being class A (well first 50 watts) they produce a bit of heat, and while they don’t get overly warm to the touch they do heat up the room over time. As summer approaches again (in Perth) we have found that we are turning the stereo off, and only using it for more critical listening, and this somewhat defeats the purpose – particularly as off means no music! So I am seeking some thoughts on alternatives, I am looking (hoping) for that liquidness in the highs one gets with class A, but without so much heat. Have tried a class A/B amp but it is not quite as good – although I would probably be happy with it I had not owned the others . Are there class A/B amps that people would recommend in this regard and what about class D - or is that a step to far?
  5. Hi All, have lurked for a while but am now in the need of a bit of help or at least a few opinions. Thanks, Oinksta.
  6. Hi All, trying to work through the hype vs reality. Stereonet appears to be populated by people who are a bit less evangelical than many forums, so thought I'd give it a go. Oinksta.
