    Any Karan Acqustics owners here?

    Hi there,
    I'm looking at upgrading my Krell amps for something more modern.
    The Karan KA M900's are of interest to me.
    TAD Reference 1 are the speakers they will be running.
    Thoughts?
    Suggestions?

    Hey Joe,
    Not quite in the league you are looking at but a mate in Melbourne is running the KA I 180 integrated. It's a lovely amp - very good power for an integrated and still very musical. He runs it with SF Cremonas and loves the pairing. They are way overpriced in Australia. My mate bought his direct from the distributor in Singapore and saved a packet.

    There's a guy here on WBF who runs the big KAMs with Magico Q5s. I can't, for the life of me, remember his username. I do remember that he loves them a lot.

    Currently demo'n a KA S 400 Shane.
    I like what it does, I think the 900's will be something else.
    The 2000's are well out of budget.

    If you like the KA S400 as much or better then the KAS, you could well be on the mark.
