My new integrated amp

Ok so i probably fell for the oldest trick in the book.Contacted a local dealer about the MF M3i,as he was about to place an order with Music Fidelity he offered me a rather generous(promised i wouldn't say how much :silenced: )discount,if i were to buy there and then,over the phone....so i did(have spoke to them prior,and exchanged emails...they seem realy nice blokes :shifty: )

Now cno has recomended this to partner well with my speakers,as did the dealer,also the many different reviews iv'e read do claim this to be a great piece of kit....so no worries there.It also falls well within my budget.....but i now feel such a fool for not auditioning the amp...i'm sure i will be very happy with it. :oops:

So after following these forums for 2yrs and more i'd like to appologise to everyone who's ever given me advice becouse i didn't audition the amp,so it would serve me right if it all goes t*ts up!..will i ever learn :doh:

The amp should be ready for collection by next weekend Smile

Please feel free to leave ar*e kicking comments as i know i deserve them  :boohoo:

So a big thank you to cno,and also to hifix who recomended a different amp,but it was out of my price range Smile

RE: My new integrated amp

As long as your new amp is sufficient to drive your speakers properly, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Buying speakers blind would have been a different matter, but then hey, that's what I did and I have no complaints.

Enjoy.

Sod it, life's too short and we all need those implusive decisions. So don't feel guilty ior daft, just enjoy the amp when it comes - sounds like it will be a good match.:cheer:

I suggest the first track you play on it is REM's "It's The End Of The World" :shifty:

I'm sure you'll be fine. Most amps sound good in isolation and I'm sure you'll love it.

Enjoy!

Don't worry the MF M3i is a fine amp, has quite a bit of power. As you bought over the phone does that count as distance selling, if so you should be able to return within 7 days if you are not happy.

Told her what? In my experience women aren't that interested to really take notice, so tell her you got a good example from Ebay for £100 and unless you have a joint account, you'll probably get away with it. So I'm told. From a friend. Honest guv ROFL

Well,after doing the deed,i called the guy back to see if it was covered by the 30day home demo thing,he said that as it was a heavily discounted deal that it wasn't,but i'm sure if i hate it then under trading laws they would have to take it back.Tbh,he said that if i put on auction site as an opened boxed item,unused etc i would get my money back:)

AFAIK distance selling rules should apply regardless of price

Can you buy her a present as a softener? Take her out for a meal? Tell her her bum doesn't look big in this. Practice your serious face in the mirror first (if you're like me and as see through as cling film underpants)

RE: My new integrated amp

I'm sure you'll really like it. You'd be hard pushed to find a 'bad' sounding amp. Enjoy the sounds when it comes. Smile
