My PS Audio M-700 Monoblocks..And I switched from more expensive Tube Amplifiers.
|Thoughts on choosing an amplifier|
Consider a pair of M700 Monoblock’s from PS Audio..Better reviewed and cheaper than the Benchmark and listed as a ’A’ Component by Stereophile in the most recent issue..I run them with a Schiit Freya and XLR connections..
|Should I trade up from a Kavent/Shengya/Vincent mono block ??|
So I did the deal with HiFi Heaven and got the M700 Stellar MonoBlocks..They are fantastic and the best I've ever owned.. A rating in Stereophile ..A good cheap deal for sure..I'm running Focal Speakers..

Bic Venturi Formula 6’s..Large and not so accurate but perfect for Led Zeppelin..

My new PS Audio M700 Monoblocks weigh 13 Lbs. each..They sound better than the Class A 70 Lbs. monsters Monoblocks they replaced..
Currently the Teac nt505..But I'm waiting for PS Audio's Stellar Streamer with MQA.
|Ordered my new amp today... been a long road!|
You need some better wire my friend and also clean all the tips of your wires with DeoxiT..Spend about $200 on speaker wires.. I like Better Cables on Amazon..I recently bought a pair of PS Audio M700’s and cleaned every connection ..Good luck..
|Sound quality issues streaming from Tidal vs CD|
You need a better Router I think..Try it from a MacBook.I use an Explorer2 and it sounds fantastic..
