To my mind your setup is overly complex and would probably benefit from some simplification.paulg22 said:Ive got the cambridge cxn network streamer, cxc cd transport and the audio technica AT-LP5 turntable. so I listen through varios sources
I also use Spotify through the network player and use bluetooth dongle on the cxa 60 for youtube music etc
This is a serious piece of kit, but it is not 'voiced' to sound different/musical, nor does it have the advantage of an impresive hi-end brand name. It is 'just' an amplifier, transparent, powerful but largely unassuming.SemiChronic said:I sometimes regret not going for the 851W. Dont get me wrong, im very happy with my amp.
But occasionally i think "Why did i buy a stupid integrated" . . At the time i couldnt demo one, and the lack of buttons and stuff on the front also scared me a little.
In hindsight i should have manned up and took home the 851W, instead of thinking what if?
There are some detailed reviews of the 8 series via google . .
