Good for you, enjoy! Just curious, what was the integrated it beat out?

Winoguy im not sure yet if the speaker load is just reacted more favourably to the extra 60 watts per channel overall just a better match , the first thing I noticed how much tighter and deeper the bass goes with certain tracks . When I first laid eyes on the Pioneer receiver I was immediately taken by it , my thoughts were just to have it as a electronic art piece it certainly grabs attention of most of my clients some weren’t even born in the 70s.
Roxy the integrate is a good one with a long stable history in the audio industry to be fair I do not want to come across as bashing the brand or having some other misguided notion .
I’ve invited a friend over to check out my new receiver, I’ll switch between integrate and receiver and simply ask with one he prefers. I’ll let you both know .
Going into this my friend was not aware of my preference the Pioneer receiver over a Accuphase 280 integrate . There was more to his visit then to look at some old receiver.
The TeKton speakers are fairly efficient into a steady 8 ohms and very easy to drive . The pioneer rated at 160 watts per channel into 8 ohms and the Accuphase rated at 90 per channel into 8 ohms the Pioneer driving the TeKton speakers took on a whole different sound signature , pleasing to the ears with spectacular well defined bass thunder I had no idea the speakers we’re capable of .My friends preference is the Pioneer.
Anyway the Accuphase is a fine integrate likely better suited with another brand of speakers .
