Agostino Progression integrated amp
I'm not sure "bright" was the correct word (maybe leaner than normal or thin?), but the intention was that it will not sound its best not having been fully broken in yet. Anyway, I showed up at our scheduled time on Tuesday, but the new amp had "n... 
Agostino Progression integrated amp
I’m going to audition it this coming Tuesday to hear how it sounds on a pair of Maggie 3.7is. I’ll let you know afterwards. (My dealer warned me that it will only have about 10 hours on it and will sound bright because it hasn’t had time to fully ... 
Bryston 7B3 compared with McIntosh MAC6700 Integrated
Hi all - thanks for reading the novella and your comments. A few responses and a final clarification:mike_in_ncdid I miss a description of the listening room?No, I didn't say, but its 16' wide and 14' deep, carpeted and canvas wall art being used ... 
How is being recorded these days
True - I prefer original pressings too - I guess there’s virtually no true 100% analog chain these days for new music... 
Anyone compared Sanders Magtech vs. McIntosh MC462/52 or MC611/01 with Magnepan 3.7/20.7?
@elizabeth Thanks for the info of how long these panels take to break in - I was told 200 hours... but I definitely won't be changing up any gear until at least six months from now. Even at six weeks old, I can see how much they've changed. --cheers!

@markusthenaimnut Thanks for describing the sound profile of this amp - it seems to be the overwhelmingly most recommended amp for Maggies (outside of Magnepan Co. using two Pass Labs x250.8's in mono block mode at shows to demo the 3.7i's) --cheers!

I disagree about 'the Maggie mist' being unsolvable. If you work on the AC side.. the clarity can be astounding at low levels.(too)[email protected] So could you expand a little on "work on the AC side"? Do you mean just using a power conditioner for yo... 
Anyone compared Sanders Magtech vs. McIntosh MC462/52 or MC611/01 with Magnepan 3.7/20.7?
In short, more umph and bottom end. For some of my audiophile recordings (using two step process or master from master tape), I’ll switch back to the 4 ohm tap because it is recorded with enough bass and gives it more air and soundstage. Also, you...
