Thanks. I did buy the E-202 and it is definitely the best I have had yet. Had a cleaning done in Portland and subsequently a little problem with static remaining on one of the push buttons. The tech did not want to re-clean it. This really disappointed me since it was the third piece of gear I had in there and despite a 30 day warranty, he flatly refused to look at it again. Nevertheless I am really happy with the E-202, but now I am back on the perpetual hunt to find the next "best" one.
Well I couldn't resist hooking up the Accuphase E-202 to my existing system. First as and integrated then as an amp. As an Integrated I've got lots of cleaning to do. I hear a lot of scratchiness from my speakers whenever I turn the volume dial or the other tone controls. When I adjust the switch on the back of the E-202 and then use it as an amp the sound is pretty sweet. The imaging is front and center but a bit low in my system. I may try messing with the speaker damping control in the back of the E-202 but I don't know if that control is active when the E-202 is set to amplifier only mode.
If anyone has any thoughts on this or the E-202 in general let me know.
