Spend a few bucks more. There is a Music Ref 9Mk2 for 1450. in the ads now. This is a musical amp.for sure. It has user biasing,(per quad)can use el34's 6550's kt88's.--Talk about a tube roller's delight.A former Stereophile class a. I owned one for 3/4 years, so, no it ain't mine.From what I have read here in past threads;it's better than a 120.
It may be a better unit. I can comment on that part of it. Have not heard the Music REF9MKII.
Your asking him to spend 40% more than he has to, Is he going to get 40% m ore performance. Or are we talking 2% 3% more. Law of diminishing return.
In this hobby 10K get you 95% of the way there. They you spend abother 100k to get the added 5%.
Thank you for the recommendations. Upon doing more research, soul searching, and some pocket searching as well, I've decided on the Music Reference RM-9 II. I'll have it tomorrow! I had my mind on one for a while now.
Next question will be "What $600 used pre-amp should I mate with it?" Input welcomed now, but I'll know more about the sound I want when I get the amp....Too embarassed to mention the preamp I have to start it on.
