Recently ditched my 25 year-old Kenwood KA-3020SE for a new Denon PMA-800NE. My amp had a dodgy right channel and a few other issues so thought I would 'upgrade'. The Denon was the right price (£400) and had very good reviews from various users on Amazon and Richer Sounds website, although few website or YT reviews. Have to say initial thoughts are that I am underwhelmed by the Denon - I find it to have a very dry and lifeless sound whereas my Kenwood was bright, warm and had a wide soundstage. Do you believe in breaking in periods? I am wondering if the Denon is not for me and I would be better off with something like an Audiolab or Arcam amp, or whether there really is some truth to the idea of breaking in/burn-in period? Any thoughts?
