Web: www.musical-fidelity.co.uk. The old advertising jingle "Who put eight great tomatoes in that itty-bitty can?" bubbled through my head as Musical Fidelity's Antony Michaelson proudly unboxed the new $4500 M3 Nu-Vista integrated amplifier. How didthey cram it all in there? The M3 packs improved versions of the English company's acclaimed Nu-Vista preamplifier and Nu-Vista 300 power amplifier (minus 25Wpc) into a surprisingly compact and dramatic-looking package. As with the separates, the integrated's power supply is outboard to keep transformer magnetic fields from interfering with low-level signals, but the supply, too, is smaller than the Nu-Vista 300's. With its blue LEDs, intricate, jewelry-like knobs (each is composed of seven individual pieces), and brushed "ultra-pure HE39" faceplate heavily accented with 24k gold, you'll have to decide whether the M3 Nu-Vista's looks remind you of Cartier, or of a dumpy guy with a comb-over wearing a Star Sapphire pinky ring. And if that's you, I apologize. Let's Get Physical Appearance aside, there's no mistaking the M3 Nu-Vista's build quality: beefy and substantial outside, jigsaw-puzzle intricate inside, with circuit boards stacked like floors in a high-rise building and linked, in the case of the preamp board, with RCA-to-RCA interconnects. Despite the M3's compactness and complexity, its overall internal approach is impressively neat and orderly. Both the volume and source-selector knobs are remote-controllable, while the front panel's only other control—a tape monitor button—isn't. The amplifier-sized power supply, while not nearly as dramatic-looking as the main unit, nonetheless merits visible shelf space—a good thing, as it has the M3's only On/Off switch. Like the Nu-Vista 300's power supply and amplifier, the two halves of the M3 are connected by three cables: one fitted with XLRs for the preamp power supply, the other two fitted with Neutrik power connectors for the juice. There's a Mute button on the remote but not on the M3 itself; if you mute using the remote and then misplace it, you have to shut the amp down and power up again to un-mute. There's no front-panel "Mute" LED, so if you forget you've muted the unit and then go back to listen, you might accidentally start your source, hear nothing, and begin by turning up the volume. Once that doesn't accomplish anything, you might remember and un-mute with the volume fully up. How do I know? Guess. You have a choice of six selectable line-level sources, one of them labeled "SACD," and there's a tape monitor. Also included is a built-in moving-magnet/moving-coil phono stage. Given the M3's price, the phono stage must be considered a rather substantial freebie. Musical Fidelity reprises the 300's dual pairs of ridiculously oversized binding posts, thus guaranteeing that no spade lugs known to man will fit around them. Speaker cables tipped with banana plugs are the order of the day. The gold-plated RCA jacks are neatly laid out, with plenty of space between them for your favorite steroid-fed interconnects. The M3's heft, custom-machined heatsinks (watch it—they'll slice your fingers), superb fit'n'finish, luxurious control knobs, and internal layout add up to a $4500 design extravaganza and an incredible value. Nor will Musical Fidelity be making their profits from volume sales. As with the other Nu-Vista products, MuFi will make only 500 M3 Nu-Vistas; if history is any indication, they'll sell out quickly. Nuvistor Design The M3 Nu-Vista's output stage is essentially dual-mono. Each channel is fed by its own transformer/power supply, and each has its own dedicated printed circuit board, output transistor array, and heatsink. Both the original Nu-Vista preamplifier and power amplifier (the latter reviewed in December 1999) include tiny, metal-can nuvistor (6CW4) triode vacuum tubes in their signal paths, but the M3 concentrates both pairs of these in its preamp section. Out of production for almost a half century, the nuvistor has a life span estimated at 100,000 hours. According to MuFi's Antony Michaelson, 500 Nu-Vista preamps and almost that many amps have been sold, and not one nuvistor has failed. Nonetheless, Musical Fidelity will stock a set of replacement tubes for every one of the 500 M3s it plans to build. While the basic Nu-Vista preamp and amp circuits have not changed, Musical Fidelity claims to have made a few improvements for their implementation in the M3. Slightly less negative feedback is used, but distortion is said to be four fifths of its separate cousins, thanks to refinements in the mechanical and electrical layouts. As in the 300 power amp, choke power-supply regulation is used, which results in a more continuous source of current to the reservoir capacitors with less spurious RF radiation. There's a new wrinkle, however: the choke regulators are mounted on the heatsinks. MuFi claims to have discovered a sonic improvement when the choke-induced "micro vibrations" are "exactly in phase with the...related circuitry." The end result is a preamp section claimed to be quieter, with wider bandwidth, lower distortion, and better overload characteristics. Though there is one fewer pair of output transistors, which drops the power from 300W to 275W into an 8 ohm load, the net result is a drop of 0.5dB in overall dynamic range, which is essentially meaningless in most systems. With about 40 amps of peak current, the M3 should be capable of driving almost any loudspeaker out there without ever clipping or distorting. The frequency response is said to be just about "DC to light" (actually to +100kHz), as the great engineer Bill Porter, responsible for Elvis' golden age of recordings, liked to claim for his work (Nashville Studio "B" 's finest). No Sonic Fingerprints? The first design objective for the M3 Nu-Vista, as listed on the press release I received with my review sample, was "No sonic fingerprint." Of course, that's the goal for most designs of most designers, none of which, in my opinion, and none of whom have ever succeeded at it. Despite Musical Fidelity's best efforts, neither have they. No big surprise—every amplifier I've ever heard has a sound of its own. This is what makes the "if it measures the same, it sounds the same" crowd so annoying. I go into this review with an admitted prejudice: after I reviewed it in December 1999 I bought a Nu-Vista 300 power amp—essentially the amplifier section of the M3—and I have no doubt that John Atkinson's measurements of the M3 Nu-Vista will be as stellar as those taken of the 300. But I have another prejudice: I auditioned the 300 with the original Nu-Vista preamp, the sound of which I didn't care for at all. This despite the rave reviews it received, and the fact that all 500 preamps were snapped up in a hurry—when you find one on the used market, expect to pay more than it cost new. So what do I know? I auditioned the M3 in two places in my room—between the loudspeakers, where my 300 customarily sits, using digital source material, and in the space usually occupied by my preamp—so I could listen to both digital and analog. That spot necessitated a 20' run of speaker cable—hardly ideal—but overall, I noticed no fundamental sonic difference using 8' or 20' of the Analysis Plus Oval 9 copper wire sent along by Musical Fidelity's then importer, Audio Advisor. I also tried 8' runs of other, more familiar speaker cables, including MuFi's own Nu-Vista brand. When I closed my eyes, it wasn't easy to tell that I was listening to an integrated amplifier. Despite having two less output transistors, this package shared much of the 300's power, authority, dynamics, and overall sonic grace, though it didn't have the 300's bottom-end "slam" and control. It seemed ever so slightly softer in the lower bass, especially when reproducing well-recorded kick drums. But overall, I preferred the M3 to the more expensive separates because of its richer, warmer, quieter presentation. No matter what I threw at it or how high I turned up the gain, the M3 always sounded at ease, never stressed or strained. Whether it's the nuvistors, or the care that went into the board layout, or whatever, the dryness, etch, and two-dimensionality that frequently parch moderately priced solid-state gear has totally eliminated. (Although the M3 costs $4500, that price must be considered "modest," given the design's power, build quality, and overall performance.) When I played the CD-Rs I'd recorded off of the Rockport System III Siriusturntable, the M3 sounded somewhat more rich and lush than the separate Nu-Vista combo, as I remember it, though I still wouldn't call the sound lush or sweet. It was more pristine, delicate, and ultra-resolving. The added quiet was an obvious benefit in revealing low-level details in most of the LPs and CDs I played. Reverberant trails extended in space and time the way they do on far more expensive separates. Spacious, atmospheric recordings like John Hiatt's "Lipstick Sunset," from Bring the Family (Mobile Fidelity MFSL 1-201, LP) were reproduced with impressive width, depth, and air. On tracks like Davey Spillane's incredibly well-recorded "Atlantic Bridge" (from Atlantic Bridge, Tara 3019), which has subterranean bass and the best recording of Bela Fleck's banjo you'll ever hear, the M3 stepped out in style, delivering plenty of bottom-end weight, midrange richness, and top-end sparkle. The banjo strings had a nicely developed metallic ring in front of the instrument's distinctive-sounding body. The overall sound of the M3 reminded me in many ways of the top-of-the-line PS Audio preamps of the late 1980s, which had remarkable high-frequency delicacy, purity, and freedom from grain, as well as wide soundstages that I could see way into (at least on the equipment I owned at the time). They also tended to have a paucity of image body, solidity, and weight. If I were to criticize the M3 in any way, it would be for those same deficiencies, though to a far lesser degree—the M3's midrange was much richer and sweeter than the midranges of those PS preamps. And the M3 possessed an overall liquidity managed by few solid-state preamps of my experience at any price. I also still heard some of what had bothered me most about the sound of the original Nu-Vista preamp: a mid- to high-frequency bubble of smoothness that was pleasing and refined, but that robbed instruments of their natural solidity, edge, and grit. It kept me from feeling cymbal rivets rattling as the metal rang. It also tended to reduce the sensation of blackness and definition between images. Remember, I'm comparing the M3's performance to preamplifiers that, alone, cost much more than this integrated. But in absolute terms, that smoothness diminished the sensation of musical "traction" that helps create a sense of a real musical event occurring in your room. Getting that level of performance from low-voltage electronics always costs big bucks. That's why the Ayre K-1x preamplifier costs more than eight grand, and the Audio Research Reference Two line stage costs ten! So don't think I'm being too negative. As fantastic a product as I think the M3 is, it would be unfair to other manufacturers—and, more important, to you—to be left thinking that the M3's preamp section leveled the playing field. If an amplifier has to err on one side or another, give me smoothness over abrasive, grainy, rough edges. The M3 tended toward the smooth, but it had the power, dynamic presentation, and finesse to rock hard and reproduce lush massed strings and female vocals with equal aplomb. The M3's presentation was of a piece, leaving no loose ends hanging out to get in the way of the music. Its ease and liquidity had me listening hour after hour without fatigue. Phono Section The switchable moving-magnet/moving-coil phono section had enough gain and low enough noise for just about any cartridge I wanted to use with it. I could run the 0.5mV Lyra Helikon into the MM section, but the bass was somewhat weak. I got deeper, tighter bass and richer mids when I switched to MC. (The switch is inside the chassis, where dangerous currents lurk; Musical Fidelity prefers that this switch be set by the dealer.) The MC section also had no trouble with the ultra-low (0.2mV) Lyra Parnassus D.C.t. Both MM and MC settings are loaded at 47k ohms. The M3's phono section sounded like the very fine, three-can Musical Fidelity X-LP2 phono stage ($800): spacious and detailed, but a bit thin and cool in the upper midrange. I played a bunch of favorite test discs, and with Janis Ian's Breaking Silence (Analog Productions APP 027) noticed a bit of roughness in her voice that wasn't present when I ran the Audio Research Reference phono stage through one of the M3's line-level inputs. I hear you: "What do you expect? The Reference phono stage alone costs more than the preamp/amp/phono M3!" Well, here's the problem: The M3 Nu-Vista was so good overall that it demanded to be compared to the best out there, even if it fell a bit short in some areas. Bottom line: The M3's phono section is good enough to carry you until you're ready to spend more on an outboard device. Conclusion I don't know how a relatively small company like Musical Fidelity can offer this level of power, performance, flexibility, superb build quality, and aesthetic refinement at such a reasonable price. After all, the Nu-Vista 300 power amplifier alone cost $5495. If you contemplated buying the Nu-Vista preamp/300 amp combo and missed out, here's your second chance. For a lot less money, you get what I think is, in some respects, more refined performance (though with slightly less power) in a single package. Reviews emphasize sound quality, but there's also pride of ownership. It counts. Most audiophiles would be proud to own an M3 for its physical andsonic qualities. At this price, the specialty audio world is populated mostly by black boxes. The M3, Musical Fidelity's final amplifying device in the Nu-Vista series, is a welcome exception. With MuFi making only 500 for the entire world, if you're thinking about owning one, now's the time. If the Nu-Vista preamp is any indication, you might have to pay more if you wait to buy one used.

  12. Item: Naim 5si Integrated amplifier Location: Sth Gold Coast Price: $1150 (+ courier costs) Item Condition: Excellent. Ships in original packaging with remote, power cable, original Naim din cable, and manual. In the close up pics you may be able to pick a tiny nick above the tuner button and another on the side in photo of corner. They are virtually invisible unless right up looking for them. Same with a light scuff on volume dial. These are the only marks I could find. Could be able to help out with some banana plug terminated BJC speaker cables for a reasonable price if necessary. Reason for selling: Wanted to try the Naim with my Dyn speakers but think I prefer my current amp at the low SPLs I usually listening to. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ any fees), COD Only Extra Info: This is the current model with RRP of $2,350. I purchased from Tivoli HiFi about a month ago. It was a trade from original owner and apparently about 2 ½ years old. It's had the once over by a Tivoli tech and came with 3 months warranty. I have not asked if this is transferable but can do.

  15. Now I’m not really a bucket list person but if I was then this would have been right up high, top 10 for sure. A sound off between 3 of the Great Japanese Amplifier Manufacturers, Accuphase, Luxman and Sansui (in alphabetical order, just to avoid any accusations of favouritism). Ready for battle. And even before I get anywhere near the sonic performance I can’t help but notice all the differences between the three amps. But before I get to those I’ll just elaborate on the specific models present. The Accuphase E460 debuted in November 2010. Rated at 180wpc into 8 and 260wpc into 4 Ohms, frequency response is 3 to 150,000Hz at +0, -3dB, 0.05%THD from 20 to 20,000Hz from 4 to 16 Ohms. Uses 92 watts at idle and a max draw of 440 and weighs in at a moderate 24.4kg. It is also a MOSFET design. The Luxman L507u debuted at around the same time (can’t find any actual dates but it seems to have been on sale from about 2010 to about 2015). Rated at 110wpc into 8 and 200wpc into 4 Ohms, it is rated 0.22%THD from 20 to 2000Hz (into 8 ohms both channels driven with line straight on) which doesn’t sound that great but it does make 0.015% into 8 Ohms at 1kHz. Frequency response is 20 to 100,000 Hz -3dB or less. It uses 1.5 watts on standby, 82 watts at idle and 325 watts max. It weighs in at only 22.5kg. The Sansui Alpha 907NRA debuted in 1998 and as such is the old man of the three. It is rated at 160wpc into 8 and 190wpc into 6 Ohms and frequency response from DC to 300,000Hz at +0 and -3dB. THD is listed as less than 0.003% at 8 Ohms. I can’t find a power draw at idle but it is rated at 400 watts max. It weighs in at a spine injuring 33kg. These three amps don’t lend themselves well to direct comparisons in many ways, still, what’s life without a few challenges, let’s see what comparison categories we can come up with shall we? Ease of use: Otherwise known as the laziness category the loser here is obvious as the poor Sansui doesn’t have a remote. The winner is harder to pick, both Accuphase and Luxman have a remote with line switching and volume control but only the Accuphase has cd controls as well so I think the Accuphase wins this one. Environmental friendliness: The Luxman is the only amp that has a standby mode, so I can see people using it. That’s bad because it will use power 24/7. The Accuphase does not have a standby mode so I would think people would turn it off when not in use, that’s good, unless people leave it on in which case that’s bad. The Sansui has no standby mode and no remote, on or off people you need to make up your mind with the Sansui. Most people would see the Luxman winning this one. Capacitor bank size: Should be easy right? Wrong! The Accuphase has one large 33,000uF custom made cap per channel, the Luxman has two 10,000uF caps per channel which is more but they aren’t custom. The Sansui is harder to figure out as it has six caps of three different capacitance ratings at 2 different voltage ratings. If we just add up the figures we get 14,200uF per channel. The winner on numbers is the Luxman but it is obvious that the three amps are all designed along different lines of thinking since the amp with largest capacitor bank is also the one with smallest wattage rating. Coolest Running: The Sansui wins this category as it barely discharges any heat at all, the Luxman comes in second and the Accuphase third. None of these amps generate a lot of heat as such but the Sansui is the only one I would consider putting in an enclosed cabinet. Most gratuitous use of knobs in the design: Sorry Accuphase, you lose. The Luxman and Sansui tie with 8 knobs each. (Yes I could called this one “Most controls accessible from the faceplate” but… well… I didn’t) I was going to include a phono section but there wouldn’t be much point, every one has a choice of MM or MC and since I don’t have a turntable I don’t have the chance to try them out. Although the Accuphase doesn’t come with a phono as standard so I guess that could count as a loss with a tie for the Luxman and the Sansui, yeah, what the heck. Optional Accessories: Definitely a win to the Accuphase here with its 2 optional module slots. It can be fitted with optional DAC, phono and line in boards. Why you would want an extra line in board is beyond me but I guess if you do then you just do. Wall Voltage Options: I had to put this one in as since the Sansui Alpha series were only ever available in Japan they are only available in 100 Volt and as such a step down transformer is required to use them in many countries. This is not the case with the Luxman and the Accuphase amps. So a loss to Sansui and a tied win to the Accuphase and the Luxman. A and B speaker options: Sorry Sansui, with your single set of binding posts you lose this one. Most Gorgeous Looking Ass: That copper looks damn fine, Sansui by a mile. And one final thing of note, I really like the binding posts on the Accuphase. They just have the feeling of extra strength and extra grip, a really nice design to use. They give you the impression that you could really put some strength into tightening those speaker cables. So if I put in a “Speaker Binding Posts” category the Accuphase would be a sure winner. I could also put in an “Ability to Power Other Components” category too, with the 100 watt max plugs on its back the Sansui would walk away with that one, admittedly it is much more use in Japan but since that’s where it was designed, built and sold then that is what counts. I could continue on here for quite a while, could probably double the length of this post if I felt inclined, but I think I’ve covered enough info to let everyone get the impression that these amps aren’t really that similar even though they offer many of the same options and have fairly similar output ratings. So if you have to that conclusion then good, it will help minimise the confusion later when I start to say things about how they don’t sound that similar either. I have to go now, things to do, but I’ll be back.
  16. Item: Pioneer SA-8500II - 1976 Location: Neutral Bay Price: $700.00 Item Condition: immaculate Reason for selling: downsizing collection Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The Integrated Amplifier which pursued high-quality sound-ization, such as adopting 2 power transformers of a right-and-left independency in order to improve a dynamic behavior. While having adopted a differential, a three-step hardwired-connection final-stage Class-A operation, pure complimentary SEPP, and positive/negative 2 power source of the first rank as an equalizer part and aiming at a distorted reduction,The modification of a property is aimed at by using the NFB element (±1% of an error, the nichrome vapor-deposition metal film resistor of temperature characteristic±50 part per million/c, styrene capacitor of ±2% of an error) selected carefully. Moreover, the improvement in an SN ratio was aimed at by selecting carefully and adopting especially a low-noise transistor as the first rank differential amplifier, and 250mV of maximum permissible inputs have been obtained by supplying the voltage of ±25V to a circuitry. In order to demonstrate the performance of various cartridges, the circuit changing switch from which four kinds of cartridge load capacity can be chosen is carried. The load capacity which was suitable for the using cartridge by this can be set up. The two-step hardwired-connection flat amplifier of a control part chooses the operating point as the linear area of a transistor by making the first rank into a differential amplification, and is aiming at the distorted reduction. Moreover, the tone control has adopted the 3 steps of turnover switching. It is adopted as a control knob with the click stop which is easy to use, and also also has the tone on-off switchpoint. The attenuator type of 32 steps is adopted as a volume, and there is little gang error between right-and-left channels as less than 0.5dB, and it also serves as indicated value of the panel side with an error of less than ±0.5dB. Furthermore, it has a muting lever of -20dB, and more delicate volume control is possible. The circuitry of the power amplifier part consists of a 2 steps of ±2 powering and differentials amplification current mirror circuitry, a final-stage parallel push pull, and a pure complimentary OCL circuitry. The dual transistor where the property was stabilized is used for the differential-amplification part of the first rank, and it is reducing the eventh harmonic content by considering a pre driver or later as a push pull drive while making the pre-driver stage into a current mirror circuitry, applying sufficient NFB and reducing distortion. The good chimney style radiator of the heat-dissipation effect is adopted as a heat dissipation. The power-source part had adopted two power transformers and the capacitor of 10,000 micro Fx4, eliminated the cross interferencee between channels in the power-source part, and has improved the channel separation. The protection network consists of quick electronic circuitries of a power relay and a response. Moreover, the it1 sound at the time of power activation is also eliminated. Functionalities, such as a separation termination of a preamplifier and power amplifier, a two-line tapes monitor and a loudness contour, a low cut (subsonic speed), and a high cut-off filter, are carried.

  19. It was suggested that I copy the review I put up in my Addicts Guide thread and put it up in its own, individual post that way people can search for and find it a little easier. So here it is with an extra pic of the remote that I forgot to include in my initial post. I have noticed in the past that some amplifiers cut/smooth off/leave out/trim/blunten the leading edge of musical notes. I can’t say I’ve ever understood why before but with the Accuphase I think I do, that initial impact carries so much power that it kills all the little details that follow. I’m not sure how it does this, maybe it is something to do with the amp itself or maybe it is to do with the human ear decreasing its own sensitivity in response to strong stimuli. If you remove that initial hit then you also remove the veil from all the detail hiding behind it. I usually notice this effect in the bass, because that is where many of the most powerful notes are, but the benefits can be heard throughout the frequency range. For instance, with triangle, while the initial strikes only come across as brightly as tiny little stars in the night sky the ability to hear the triangle itself ring out so clearly after each series of strikes is really something special. Also, while brass instruments come across as incredibly “rough and brassy” they don’t annoy at all and may just be the most listenable that I’ve ever heard. The higher piano notes are very nice, but not as noteworthy as the brass and light percussion. In the days since I typed those first two paragraphs I have done some research and have found that this effect, or at least something very much like it, seems to be characteristic of MOSFET amps. This would explain why the Accuphase reminds me of the Redgum sound as far as the missing leading edge of bass notes goes. The only other MOSFET amp I can remember off the top of my head is Perreauxs Audiant 80i and it certainly does not sound like the other two so I guess the effect is not universal. Anyway, back to the Accuphase, I simply have to mention the volume indicator. The volume is displayed in red numbers just below the green, illuminated Accuphase logo but they don’t stay displayed. The volume level appears when you press the up or down buttons and then disappears again about 2 seconds after you remove your finger from the buttons. Nice! And here's a picture boys and girls. Also, those VU meters are a bit less distracting than those on the Luxman, they are lit up a bit softer and that tan/yellow colour doesn’t draw the eye in as such. You can watch them or not, as you choose. The blue back lighting on the Luxman keeps you looking at them even if you try not to, you can turn the back lighting off on the Luxman, but then you can’t see them at all. I am a little disappointed in the remote control, in the days when many sub $3K amps from China come with a remote that seems to be carved from solid billet Accuphase have stuck with a remote that, while it has an aluminium cover, still manages to feel very light and very plastic-y. Functionality wise it is fine, but it doesn’t feel as though it belongs with an amp as eye-wateringly expensive as an Accuphase. Into specs, the E460 generates 180wpc into 8 and 260wpc into 4 Ohms with a THD of 0.05% from 20 to 20,000Hz at +0 and -0.2dB. Power consumption at idle is 92 watts, max is 440. It does run fairly warm. It weighs in at a quite reasonable 24.4kg. The model I have purchased from Galactic Soap has the optional AD-20 phono card fitted and I went and got all excited and ordered a DAC-40 card before the amp even arrived. I’m still waiting on the DAC-40 card to arrive but I have been assured it is on its way. I found that, rather like the Luxman before it, the Accuphase did not really like my Aurealis IC cables, they just seem to let through too much top end. Fussy Japanese amps require careful IC matching it seems, so I opted for a pair of Redgum Audio Pipeline ICs as they were the closest to hand and since the Accuphase seemed happy with them I didn’t go any further. The source in question was my YBA Heritage cd player, speaker cables were my 10 AWG Ugly cables with Jaycar banana plugs attached and the speakers were my Lenehan S2R stand mounts. Caffeine levels were maintained by the carefully co-ordinated consumption of Pepsico products and sugar levels were elevated via the regular consumption of Nestle chocolate. So, let the evaluating begin. Highs: As mentioned above the triangle ringing out is truly something special and the brass sounds so much more brassy than anything I have heard to date. Piano is nice, maybe even very nice but it does not come close to being as noteworthy as the triangle or the brass. 8.5 (maybe 8.75, I want to give it a 9.0 due to the triangle and brass performance but that level of performance, and that score, should really be backed up across the board) Mids: Slick, clear, clean and just a little smooth and calm. Rise to the occasion with an increase in volume, they are a little soft at lower volume levels but really come alive as you move up to regular listening levels and above. The mids are very good, violins and Santana style guitar are good enough to get an 8.0 by themselves but they jump up to an 8.5 with the addition of magic from the sound stage. More on that in a couple of paragraphs. Bass: Clear, strong and overflowing with smooth, well balanced bass. Never forward, there is no risk of it pushing you back in your seat here, the Accuphase is far too cultured to ever exhibit any of that hooligan-style behaviour. I’m going to mention something here that works in with the sound stage below, the bass is never punchy, it is never felt as such but it is big and it growls very low. At one stage there I could swear it found the resonance frequency of my lower jaw but it did it by pressurizing the room with a hard, deep growl and not by punching me in the head so hard that my jaw felt it. All the bass stays on the stereo’s side of the room, in fact all the music stays on the stereo’s side of the room. There are some drum strikes that I feel are a little odd, perhaps it’s the MOSFET style of bass presentation, but those are few and far between. I’m giving slow bass (such as cello and double bass) an 8.75, faster bass (such as bass guitar) an 8.5, fast-ish bass (such as normal-to-fast played drums) an 8.0, and very fast, punchy bass (such as hard, heavy drumming) a 6.0. It just does not do punchy. For that 6.0 to really come to the fore however the drums have to be the main instrument playing, if they stay in the background the effect is minimised. Vocals: Female: The Accuphase does like the ladies, it adds a nice airy surrounding to songstresses who are already heavenly to listen to. To more regular vocals it doesn’t add or subtract anything that I can identify. But then, regular vocals are by their very definition not anything special. This is interesting because the better the vocals (you could read that as “the more audiophile the recording” if you like) the more effort the Accuphase seems to put in. So I’m awarding an 8.5 for the serious songstresses and a flat 8.0 for all the regular singers. Male: Very open, very honest, but frankly nothing special. 8.0 The Sound Stage: At low levels this is the same as most other amps but as you increase the volume beyond about 70dB something very special happens. The sound stage inflates, it puts me in mind of a soap bubble rising from the floor. It starts out in between the speakers and inflates out until, between 80 and 85dB, it envelopes both speakers and about of the floor space between the listener and the stereo. Once this happens it is difficult to go back, within this bubble the stereo separation is as nothing I have heard before, if you could imagine that instead of 2 speakers set about 3 meters apart you instead had 7 speakers and even then none of the instruments come directly from them. Placement within this space is a bit eerie, no two instruments occupy the same space at the same time so you could say that separation is extreme but it doesn’t feel like it is separation at all, just placement. And it is all portrayed in front of a background that makes the rear wall feel like it has been covered in several layers of warm velvet. So there is nothing that can be heard behind the speakers except the occasional instrument. This is magical stuff! I’m not sure my description quite does it justice. However… there is a catch. It isn’t present on every album. I was devastated when I moved from my pre-test discs to my test disc and found that this effect was generally absent. I’m giving it a 9.0 because I have heard nothing to equal it, or even rival it come to that, but I’m afraid I have to mark it down due to its inconsistency so I’ll call it an 8.5. I think that, if you bought this amp you would seek out discs that this sound stage effect worked with and just not listen to any that didn’t work with it. It’s as close to magical as I have yet heard. My big gripe (and the reason I marked it down a big 0.5 instead of only a 0.25) is that it doesn’t really work with most rock music. Montaigne, Dido, Enya, Amy Lee all sound amazing on the Accuphase but it doesn’t lend the same effect to Kiss, Big Pig or Poison. I don’t have a problem with listening to the first 3 more often but I don’t think I could manage to give up the last 3 completely. Overall Performance Integration: Smooth, calm, smooth again, un-intrusive, with an every so slightly soft/blunt feel to the music. Loves breathy songstresses and unpowered instruments, very high foot tapping factor but can be a little inconsistent. Works much better with female vocals than with male IMO. Ability to Emote: Since all the music stays on the other side of the room from the listener there is a sort of an “Ability to Emote from a slight distance” effect going on. If you are happy to accept that the band seem to be playing for the next table over in the restaurant you are seated in then this is an 8.5. If you prefer them to be performing for you then it would obviously be less, probably an 8.0. Electric Guitar Test: Nice twang, even though it is smooth and not very edgy at all it still came very close to making my teeth shiver, I like! 8.25 It would score better on Santana style guitar (8.5) but by longstanding tradition this score is generated from Joe Satriani’s guitar. 80’s Rock Test: I did not think the Accuphase’s smooth presentation would work for it here, it did do much better than I expected (minus the magic of the soundstage effect). My Whitesnake and Def Leppard albums came through very well. The earlier recording styles (I call it 80’s but that isn’t really accurate) that include more incidental noise and less compression come out much more effectively than I thought they could, let alone would. 8.5. I do miss that punchy bass, but not as much as I thought I would. I now know, and completely understand, why Accuphase amps are so well regarded. That bass presentation does take a bit of getting used to, even after a fortnight I’m not sure I’ve quite got it figured out, but everything else is just fine. And that sound stage, that is just icing on the cake.
