You might be surprised how much the new Van Alstine Synergy 450 will do, check the review on" Enjoy the Music".
Caused me to buy one, the review is spot on ! Has the death grip bass of the Krell
but more tuneful in that area.On my Kef 104/2's sounds better than Krell or Bryston both of which I have driven them with.
Thanks for the various options, the Bryston is much more expensive than the Krell here in Singapore. Its funny how different (higher, very higher, ridiculously higher) prices are in this part of the world as compared to the US.
I am changing the subject a little as I see a good mix of PSB and VA supporters. I have heard them both, unfortunately for various reasons could not differentiate too much as the amplifier configurations were different. The reviews on the VA are pretty weak and teh Stereophile measurement test is quite bearish. . . is there really a problem in pushing the VA to play loud? Would I have issues if I cranked up the volume on Pink Floyd's "Sorrow" or Metallica's "Enter Sandman"?
The other music I listen to a lot is female vocals like Rebecca Pidgeon, Chie Ayoda, Sara K. . . and they sound wonderful on VA as well as the PSB. I want the versatility to be able to handle both extremes. . .
VA or PSB for versatility?
(Honestly if the PSB looked as good as the VA, I would have just bought it!!!!!):) can a man ignore good looks?
