Hello everyone at whf forum. Iam looking for a new stereo amp for my speakers, "MA RX1" currently running then on my Yamaha V663.
The ones i have been looking at is Yamaha a-s500 and Marantz PM7004 and maybe if i can open the wallet some more and spend a more Yamaha as-1000
I have a hard time to try and demo the speakers to an amp at some store. I prefer a more warmish sound,
So i have been a little scarred when i have read about the A-S500 some say its a little warm other say its cold and clinical so its kind of confusing, I think my Yamaha v663 is a little bit on the warmer side and i like it. What i also can say that i have tried my speakers with yamaha rx 1010 and it was a little bit on the colder/neutral side i think at least in my home its reflective.
Marantz PM7004 feels like a safer bet but maybe its lacks power when i play loud and i like to do that some times"not always hehe:)".
Yamaha A-S 1000 really love the retro design, but maybe i feel its stupid to spend so much on an amp and overkill for the Monitor Audio RX1.So if you have any advice for me i will be most gratefull
