It's been about fifteen years that I have the E-206, a small merveille.Mais why I chose this integrated?
A high fidelity enthusiast friends asked me to buy for a low price its ancient walls, the JM-LAB (Focal) ONYX 710, saw the price, I do not hesitate (4000 ff early 90).
I had a Sony amp that gave me satisfaction, but ONYX deserved better. So I went looking for the set that best corresponded to these speakers.
I met the representative of Focal my area, and without hesitation he led the side of Accuphase, being suspicious by nature I asked several traders entrust me with their amp to test them.
The net result was the Accuphase was far ahead.
Happy owner of an Accuphase E-206,
(Dynamic, transparent patches, details of the attacks, sustained serious, acute and medium chopped)
For 20 years he has built that can still do see some, I think the hardware of today will not age so well.
A few speakers that can driver (Cabasse, JM Reynaud, JBL ...)
Rare opportunity offered price between 500 € and 850 € according to state and review.
Accuphase and Mcintosh have the same philosophy of "Excellence"
