In the Inspector Columbo, this block of Accuphase power would have made an excellent murder weapon.
Huge and heavy, it heats a lot and needs large spaces ... it will help to heat.
Like all power amps, it does the job, but I thought he was wrong. Can be launched juice when the term is pronounced "Class A" ... but in the end, there is nothing in there that is worth the price that is asked.
To recap, the block A-65 figure in the 15,000 euros. This is the approximate car good price and well equipped.
THIS IS TOO MUCH! And some goods would take over reality before they really become ridiculous.
I add my severe rating is not only due to the price. NO ... it is also because the A-65 was a weak point in the test. Its 65Watts are not sufficient to properly hold the bass on the B & W 802D on which it was connected. The result is a loss of precision in the bass. Fortunately, he made up for that by default a better immediacy of restitution in the midrange and treble. But at this price, no false note is tolerable. AND there was a false note.
I can only recommend to turn to a more reasoned and reasonable amplifier. After that, if you love the beautiful work, that the money is flowing and you can tolerate having an imperfect amp at this price, so do you plez!
