  1. Wow! That's a huge amount of bottom end acg. Have you ever caused yourself to suddenly rush to the toilet? Could you please explain...8 paralleled 8r drivers... what is "r"?
  2. Oh I'll be keeping the 660 for sure. Just need to scratch an itch! Will be checking out a tube in a few weeks, will report back. Got some mates coming on the weekend also with some gear to check out and compare..."playing in the sandpit"!
  3. Thank you for your responses so far. What's a decent amp upgrade do you think? Cambridge Audio CXA81 ? Musical Fidelity pre/power? I have a limited $ and would be happy to go good s/h, in the 1-2kish area.
  4. Hey All, Ive also posted this in Digital Sources forum also as it covers both ares. Seeking advice on an up grade from my either Arcam AirDAc, OR SS amp to tube. My current system is pretty good as is. It pulls me into the zoneI love it, but looking to go a bit further. This is the big question for me...Will a DAC upgrade be more beneficial than a amp upgrade. Currently considering Matrix Audio mini i 3 Pro or Element i. My other consideration is going to a tube amp. My set up at the moment consist of Arcam AirDac, HK PM660 (very nice!), Dynaudio Focus 160 an

My other consideration is going to a tube amp. My set up at the moment consist of Arcam AirDac, HK PM660 (very nice!), Dynaudio Focus 160 and MK Sound sub. Most of my listening is Tidal streaming and smattering of vinyl. My music styles var
  6. Agreed, the 160's are amazing. Buyer will not be disappointed! I went from pro BM6's to these. I have to say, I'm considering moving up the upgrade tree also. What were you're contenders and what did you end up going with? GLWTS
  7. Thanks Frednork. I used to have 650 also...it was pretty good also but might have struggled a bit with 4ohm loading. I have been eyeing of your above mentioned suggestions bar the Vitus/gryphon end. Would be an interesting listen! In the meantime I'll continue with the 660 recap. The musicality/resolution debate is an interesting one also. A mate of mine runs a Rega Elex-R with Focal 948's and thats a nice rig.
  8. Thanks again everyone. Your responses are very much appreciated and respected. I am also considering a replacement integrated. So what would you consider as a modern day equivalent to the PM660? As well as streaming (via am Arcam DAC) I spin vinyl via Planar 3 with a Ortfon MC cart (the 660 has MC pre integrated), and listen through Dynaudio Focus 160's in a medium sized room. High current capability is essential, inbuilt MC pre not. I've gotta say I love the sound of the HK (in direct mode) with the Dyn's, I'm totally pulled into the music soundstage and sonics but feel I'm
  9. What do reckon about this...glue or leakage? This is phono board.
