- Hi-Fi Amplifier advice please.
Needs to be under £200, pref. cheaper 2nd hand, black, well-made in metal and able to drive Mordaunt-Short 914 speakers whilst being precise with sound, having powerful base and delicate tweeter, dynamic enough to cope with Maria Callas as well as Slayer’s “South of Heaven”. BTW No Cambridge allowed 🙂Posted 9 years ago
Well, I’ve killed my Marantz 6010SE Amp and can’t afford a new PM6002. I listen to stuff from Maria Callas and Gorecki to Metallica, Slayer and Behemoth with a dose of Einsturzende Neubauten in between so a clear, powerful and punchy sound is needed. What Hi-Fi love Cambridge Audio but I don’t so no, no swallow-up there.Posted 9 years agomboySubscriber
Get a second hand rotel from the auction site.
Much as I can highly reccomend Rotel (I have one from years ago, it’s great), picking up a 2nd hand amp can be a minefield. You may get lucky and get one in mint condition, hardly been used, you may get one that needs a good service. And if you get one that needs a good service, it’ll cost £100 or more to service it most likely, negating any cost savings in the first place!Posted 9 years agoJonEdwardsMember
You should be able to get a Quad 34/306 combo second hand for £200 ish.
Not maybe the last word in detail, but they just sit there and make music. Very listenable.
Solidly built and quad have a pretty efficient service/repair dept.
I was impressed enough with mine that I’ve since upgraded to a 99CDP/909 combo that wil hopefully last me the next 20 or 30 yearsPosted 9 years ago
