|L590axii and KEF Reference one|
Interesting and at the same time perplexing as to Luxman's design decisions around their new set of integrated amps.The "Class A" line up of 550AXii and 590AXii and the "Class A/B" line up of the 505uXii, 507uXii, and 509X.The form factors are the...
|Recommendations for modern integrated with tone & balance controls other than Mcintosh|
Adding to the info that the Luxman L-590axii is a hybrid A, A/B, the L-509x is also a hybrid A, A/B with the first 6 watts biased for Class A, then A/B up to its rated output of 120W into 8 ohms.
|MF A5 vs Hegel h190|
Not powerful enough?My MF A5 driving my ATC SCM11v2s could send the neighborhood children scurrying home in fear and terror when I cranked some Sabbath.
|looking for a Integrated amp $6,000 range|
Here's a tidbit I found out from Luxman America regarding the L-509X...it's a hybrid Class A,A/B doing the first 6 watts (8 ohms) as Class A.From an email reply I got from Luxman:[quote] ...the Luxman L-509x is an excellent amplifier. It is consi...
|MF A308 vs newer integrateds|
Just anecdotal, but I upgraded last year from a MF A5 integrated to a used Luxman L-509x just over your budget.Current speakers are ATC SCM11v2s and there was a noticeable upgrade to the sonics going from the A5 to the 509x.
|Integrated amp -- Pass Labs vs Luxman vs McIntosh|
OP - what do you hear/mean when you say that the Magnum is 'clearly struggling with the speakers and room dimensions'?Going the opposite way with power with your short list seems counter productive.
|Musical Fidelity / B&W bad match?|
Gotta disagree with whatever you were reading.MF and B&W match up well.I’ve heard these paired successfully at various audio shows with impressive results.And I had my own B&Ws matched to a MF A5 integrated for many years; great combo.
|TV Mounted above fireplace mantel - neck strain?|
Neck strain or eye strain (having to look ’up’ from straight ahead) will be a function of screen center height, viewing distance, and viewing angle(any upward angling of the eye).I don’t have my big screen over the fire place, but I do have it wal...

I'm looking at a picture on-line of the back of the M6Si integrated.It has L and R preouts.Am I missing something?
|SS integrated recommendations - the final piece to my system|
I have ATC SCM11v2s also.I've been running them with my Musical Fidelity A5 integrated and it's a really good pairing. Lots of grip down low, but still very neutral balanced to the top. Plenty of grunt to go to higher volumes but still maintain ...
|Any love for Musical Fidelity integrateds?|
Been very happy with my MF A5 integrated for years; built like a tank, plenty of grunt and power, but neutral presentation top to bottom.
|Integrated advice for B&W 705's |
Before upgrading to ATC SCM11v2s, I ran with the B&W CDM1NTs (which are of the same 'family), paired with a used Musical Fidelity A5 integrated amp.They paired wonderfully; the A5 had great grip, control, and grunt of power that the B&Ws r...

@bradpaton Do you have any other remotes you use in your audio setup?I have a MF A5 Int Amp in a hybrid HT/Music setup and it, too will change inputs - but I traced it down to when I use my cable remote for changing channels.I know this is a bit o...
