Good luck mate, trust every thing will go OK.
Just have to indulge in some of that A-class therapy to help speed up your recovery.
look forward to hearing from you soon.
regarding the beresford box, I probably won't end up using it full time, but part of this process has always revolved around the (misguided?) desire to somehow integrate the AV system with the hi-fi system with one common set of speakers. It was this that was a driving force in going with an integrated amp in the first place.
3) Speaker box. More convenient in many ways but questionable in terms of SQ & certainly makes buying hi-end speaker cables much more difficult, indeed may even make it pointless.
I may be wrong, but Im pretty sure I read on the Beresford website that the beresford box you refer to has a maximum current capacbility which will be (quite a lot) less that your AMS jobbie can produce.
I would hate for aything else to go up in smoke

Jeez, don't you think I'm nutty enough!
Appreciate the comment
Oooh, thanks Greg
Just checked their website & it doesn't provide any specifics as to max load? Just says "high current handling capacity".
I guess that i had just assumed because it was a passive device (no pwer supply) that it would be fine. ie simply acted as a switch rather than actually altered or process the signal in any way.
Will send them an email to ask, I'll post their response when I hear back.
Thanks again for the heads up, much appreciated
BTW, Cno - good luck tomorrow and see you return here soon.
Thx PP......I'm on here trying to take my mind off tomorrow (8AM - first on the table!!! )
I'd like to offer my best wishes too Cno and here's to a speedy recovery.
You'll probably be hearing more about how I'm getting on, than is good for you....as, for a month or two, I'll have little else to do but annoy folks!
It'll probably still be more interesting than a lot of the threads on here... oops!

I think it's today you receive your EMC1UP Iceman... looking forward to your thoughts.
Yes I just received the EMC 1 UP today . But I won't be able to share my thoughts yet cause the xlr cable the dealer sent with it is faulty . He'll sent me another pair so Ill share my findings on thursday.
At the moment Im using unbalanced rca(chord anthem) which sound pretty damn good. I never expected that it weighs a ton and very solidly built. The first thing I noticed was the EMC 1Up and AMS 35i makes my speakers behave as they should but not losing the detail and punch.
It certainly is a bit of a beast of a machine!
Pity about the faulty XLr though... you will certainly notice a difference with them connected... which brand will you be using?
Remind me, what speakers do you Have?
I take it you managed undoing all the transit screws alright?
I dont know where to start but this is a keeper!
I'm really really pleased for you Iceman.
Drop a post on Thursday when you do get the XLR's.
One thing more ..less sibilance
