I am sure you will benefit from the M6i especially if you are getting it at a good price.musiclover121 said:maybe it will sound much better, thats why i need demo, 76 wpc for 3 way speaker seems not enough, but just imo as beginer, as el hefe wrote a reviews here and i can change it at the shop with no cut for the m6i
You sly dog.............enjoy! :dance:toyota man said:Hi El Hefe I have heard that there is to be a new M6 CDP did that come up in conversation? I have just bought a M6 500i and I love it loads more scale
larger stereo image and POWER Ive still got my M6i as I still love it to I may build it into my surround system toghther with the M6500i at the front end
Thank you CnoEvil, I will start a new forum topic so that I don't hijack this one.CnoEvil said:
Don't be put off by the 35W if you have reasonably efficient Speakers.SteveR750 said:I know you like the AMS35i Cno, but it's only 35wpc and I think it would struggle at the level I listen to (loud enough so that you cannot have a conversation at times).
Cno, I've started a MF thread, but there are some other ideas in that thread, including the AMS35i. I'm also looking at a Sugden A21SE, also class A low power on paper etc. I had an A19 amp for a while, it was chalk and cheese to the M2; not my cup of tea at all, so I'd need some convincing about anythin Arcam badged...CnoEvil said:Don't be put off by the 35W if you have reasonably efficient Speakers.SteveR750 said:I know you like the AMS35i Cno, but it's only 35wpc and I think it would struggle at the level I listen to (loud enough so that you cannot have a conversation at times).
It doubles its power into 4 Ohms and again into 2 Ohms; so with my speakers, which have a Sensitivity of 90dBs and an impedance that drops to 3.2Ohms, it can go uncomfortably loud....It sounds more like a 250W amp and has enough instant current to give a dramatic transient response, along with very deep, powerful and controlled bass.
I think you will find other owners will back up this view.
Other alternatives to consider might be Electrocompaniet, Sugden (IA-4) and the new Arcam Class G (A39/A49), which are a big step up (more exciting) from Arcams of old.
