Wow, you just nailed it! I am smitten with parts of the Luxman, but the match with the Wilsons is not what I want. Yes, the Wilsons in my room need a warm support system. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, as I am confident in what I hear, but it didn't jibe with what I read on line about the m900u "sound". Thanks for your insight!
I had an ARC Ref 6 but moved to a Boulder 2110 preamp. It wasn’t close. The Boulder is in a totally different league. Even the 1110. The ARC is good, but I felt like it didn’t have the resolution that the Wilson are capable of. Btw, I am using a dCS Rossini for digital. I couldn’t be happier with the dCS/Boulder/Boulder/Wilson setup.
Yes, the general comments about the M900u are justifiably positive in so many ways. But when people talk about "warmer" with it, I think they are just reacting to its midrange, not really addressing its bass foundation. When I posted about it not gelling with my TAD's I did get a few acknowledgements that it isn't exactly a robust bass amp. It's a great amp if matched with the right speakers, I would heartily believe. I just didn't experience that match.
It was once said, I "think" by John Atkinson, Wilson in the early days voiced their speakers with big ARC tubes, but in the last 15 years they’ve been voicing them with D’Agostino designed amps Krell and then D’Ago’s own when he left Krell.
That’s why when I hear my friends Alexia and another last model Watt/ Puppy "8"? They both sound stunning wi the Gryphon’s as they are in the same vain as the Krell’s and D’Ago, wattage doublers right down to 2ohms except I believe even the big Gryphon’s even better, as they have even more fixed bias Class-A.
