I haven't heard Abrahamsen, but it should sound like old-school Electrocompaniet (which I am familiar with). I think you would be happy with either, but if you can get the Abrahamsen at a good price, I think that is where my money would go.nicusim said:If possible,XLR in would be great,I am using an Buffalo-IIISE dac with Legato I/V stage,balanced output. What about an Abrahamsen V2.0,seems well regarded,price + transport is £730 from Norway.Or should I wait for the new Arcam SA20?
Personally, I think you'd be safer with Abrahamsan or Arcam....unless you can dem. Both Naim and Cyrus are a bit Love/Hate.nicusim said:I am tempted by a Naim Nap 200 power amp,second hand.I don't know how well works with a non Naim preamp.
