I never got the hype or love for the A400 either.On another note, I had the Pioneer A400 for a while. Rather overrated I felt. Used it with a pile of gear but for an amp that turned up at - what - £250? It was okay. For the 1990s when it came out though, it probably seemed like a revelation. Overly bright and quite thin-sounding across the board I found and not quite deserving of the fanfares it subsequently received.
That's true. But if someone says they've heard it and wasn't that impressed, I don't keep on going back to try and convince people. The Record_spot said more than once he wasn't overly impressed with A400Just about the same as everyone else on this forum.......
Can I mention a Leema Pulse?
However, I seem to recall this post was about speakers....
Doesn’t really mean anything. Manufacturers always pitch their designs against the popular amplifiers at the time.And yet Rotel and B&W used the A-400 as a reference to design the RA-1062.
So you duped all those people into buying a lesser amplifier instead of the “better” A400?! Have you no shame!Btw, as good as the the RA-1062 is however it still hasn't got the performance potential of the A-400.
AVI Lab Series CD playerOut of interest what components have you used the A-400 with please?
Joker. But then again its to be expected from a shameful supply merchant.Doesn’t really mean anything. Manufacturers always pitch their designs against the popular amplifiers at the time.

I know which one I’d still buy…
Are you deluded?Joker. But then again its to be expected from a shameful supply merchant.
Zero is the extent of your knowledge regarding the development of the RA-1062.
I'll recommend a product when I believe and feel is suitable to do so. For eg. the RA-1062 is superior to a NAD C370. However I haven't always recommended the RA-1062 over the C370 because the RA-1062 just like the A-400 and almost all if not all products is/are not going to be the ideal fit in every system.
Btw, If you feel I have no shame in me recommending for eg. basic 'freebie' interconnects then so be it.
If you feel that I have no shame in me actually selling the cheaper RA-1062 while you were busy supplying the more expensive and highly reviewed A85 (a reminder that I never sold a single A85 btw) then so be it.
If you feel I have no shame in recommending products from brands that we don't deal with the so be it.
Anyway, after all these years glad to see your appreciation of the RA-1062 come to the fore.
Subjectivity rules? Yeah right. Only when it suits your agenda.
