how many amps have you owed? 1 or 2?
ok. ive been holding off replacing my audio research integrated because the next one i buy will be the last. which dealer did you work with for the viva?
That's a rather arrogant remark - don't you think...?
my apologies. maybe it was.
I have been trying to find info on the VSI75 but not much out there. What are your impressions? Is it smarter to save up a few more pennies and go higher in the line up?
That's very nice of you. Apologizing is an honorable thing to do - especially on an online forum - which is surprisingly uncommon..
Coming back to the subject, the Absolare Passion Integrated is very, very special - I can assure you. That said, there are of course others to consider at different price points - for different listeners.
sorry i missed this ...
if i were you i would wait and buy the new foundation stuff. i keep hearing the foundation stuff is awfully close to their ref stuff. and the arc ref stuff is really hard to beat if you like the tube, 3-d realistic, * holy s*** experience listening to music.
i keep judging sound based on my good friends system (in the pic) and this system is without a doubt the best sounding thing i have heard. and he doesnt use use the cd8. he uses the amg v12 turntable with the ref3 phono stage not seen. it is the most amazing thing to listen to, full stop. so if you can ... save and get the foundation stuff. i think they are ~ $7500 a piece.
The Absolare 200w integrated sounded good at Munich and was quite compact.
From what I have heard so far the Phaeton is better.Absolare Integrated vs Ypsilon Phaethon Integrated? Anybody has experience with both these units? Look similar from spec point of view. Heard the Phaethon in my system which sounded superb, but willing to explore the Absolare option.
I thought it sounded far inferior to their all tube amps.
I meant for an integrated, that compact. I don't expect integrateds to sound as good as separates
I think they can and maybe Diana will prove it.
From what I have heard so far the Phaeton is better.
