My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Update:last night I took delivery of the Dynaudio evidence temptation. These are in better than new condition. Impeccable to say the least. anyhow, my initial impressions are:1. Huge speakers that immediately dwarf room. Extremely heavy and hard t...

luxman 900u/ ARC 6: Excellent combination. I love everything about it and i really can't stop listening. That said, this combination sounds good really good on just about anything type of music, BUT there are times when the 900u amp/preamp combo h...

Here we go again guys... things might change drastically this Thursday night if all goes well. Just to add a hint, I will have another pair of 30,000 dollar speakers. The only hint I can give you is that they are imported, stand about 6.5 feet tal...

So I did a bit of listening last night with the C1 Dynaudios and the Luxman pieces along with the Hegel H30 and audio research ref 6. First up: Luxman combo, amazing detail and great midrange. Highs are world class along with a level of depth that...

Just got done listening to the Luxman combo with Dynaudio c1s and it’s outstanding . a level of clarity that is almost unreal. That said, this wasn’t the case when i had the clx panels. I felt the arc ref6 hegel h30 had the edge in terms of slam. ...

Very very different. I’d say they sound so big that they remind me a lot of electrostatics.

Ok guys,my Clx are at the Martinlogan factory getting a full refresh. That said I can’t sit around and wait 3 weeks for them to come back so I bought a pair of Dynaudio c1s and a pair of c2s Platinums. What an amazing sound with the luxman. Wow. I...

yes, i have owned anthem p5. Excellent workhorse and very heavy. It is up there in terms of quality, but nothing close to the plinius odeon. Please note, i will be giving a shot to the simaudio mc8 in the near future. I just need to figure out how...

No I won’t try those. The 900u is superior in every regard.

i just tried the amp with the audio research preamp and a pair of dynaudio speakers and i don't hear any hissing out of my tweeters. i suspect your issue might be the preamp. Try using high quality power cords and connect both, the amp and the pre... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Hi, it is tough for me to hear any hiss because i own electrostatics. i might try a pair of small dynaudio bookshelf speakers and report back to you. Yes the amp runs hot, but so does pass labs, plinius, etc and any other exceptional amp i have ow...

My wife and i did some listening between the 900u amp and hegel h30 a few nights ago. On one night, she had the luxman as the better amp and i had the hegel h30 so then we decided to try again another night and she chose the hegel the next night a...

Leo, if you are looking for the best highs and mids, the luxman 900u is really all you need. You can use 2 of these in mono configuration if you wish and you will have all the power you need.

The no585 sounds amazing when you consider the money you are spending. Is it better than the luxman combo or hegel/arc 6 combo? no it is not, but you can't expect it to be when you consider the prices of each. That said, it is the best all in one ...
