Thanks for your reply.
What amp are you currently using?
What source component/s will you be using?
Thanks for your reply. Currently I using Marantz SA7001 CD Player as a source and matching amp looking for. Generly I listening Instrumental , Vocal, basically soft track. My current system is Quad 22L Floor Standing Speaker, Quad 606 Power and 66 Pre amplifier, Philips CD 624 CD Player, Audio Note DAC ONE 1x Signeture and Musical Fedelity x-10D Buffer. Now I buy B & W 683 Speaker and Marantz SA7001 CD Player. Right now I looking for a matching Amplifier for my B & W 683 Speaker. Now pls suggest me best matching amp. Thanks.
I take it that the SA7001 & 683's are to replace your current system. If so, then I'll recommend that you use your Quad per/power as these amplifiers should match well with the SA7001/683 and also suit the genre of music that you listen to.
Thanks for your advice. But I need a separate system for separate Flat. Then what kind of amp you advice with my SA7001 and 683.
You existing system is very good. May I ask what your budget is? I used to own the Marantz PM7001 and it was quite a decent amp, however I thought that pairing the two together might result in overall slow pace on the system (which to me, is quite a signature on Marantz)
Moon I-1 and above the line should sound nice as well. I had the I.5 for a while and though it is not a very powerfull amp, it worked quite well with my then Spendor SA-1.
