I believe some of the vincent product's are giant killers!, my opinion, is they are the best bang for the dollar in audio, I have had nothing but good exsperience's with vincent, the most important thing, very reliable thus far, that gos along way in my book considering I have had products that costed 5 times more that was hailed as some of the best that craped out on me, cheers.
Thanks for all the feedback so far. I listen to Jazz and Classical for the most of the time. I like the sound from the Vincent SV 236 MKII. Very clear, a lot of details and a nice 3D soundstage. The only complaint I have is that it sounds a little bit on the bright side. But that could because of the amp is still new (less than 100 hrs may be). I have dealer offers for Vincent SV 237 and Hegel 100 both at the $2,000 ball park. I dont have experience with Hegel but several people told me to give it a try. I have also considered Krell S300i. Any thoughts on the Krell?
I would consider getting a different pair of speakers instead. There's no getting around a big strip of aluminum they call a tweeter. But before you buy anything, try this. You can insert resistors at your speaker terminals that will roll off the highs. Call Magnepan and ask them what resistor to use for your speakers.
I contacted the dealer. They happened to receive a few H100 at the lower price. My understanding is that Hegel is going to discontinue H100. That's probably another reason why the H100's are being sold at discount price. Anyway, I have enjoyed my H200 a lot and I think I will stick with it for a while.
