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  Smile

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

I'd like to offer my best wishes too Cno and here's to a speedy recovery.

Mac

Cheers Mac.....

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!

Hi Mac

 

Yes I just received the EMC 1 UP today Smile. But I won't be able to share my thoughts yet cause the xlr cable the dealer sent with it is faulty Angry. 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?

Cheers

Mac
