    I was wondering what the difference was between these two (if any). I've noticed the P75 going for around £200 and the P75+ for £260. Is the + worth the extra £60 and is this a bargain or is it worth saving up a bit extra for the p85+. I'll be using the power amp coupled with my A75+ to bi-amp my linn ninka's. Would the A75+ and P85+ be a good match or am I better off going A75+ and P75+?
    Also is it possible to have an extra channel fitted to the p75/85+ since my ninkas have 3 drivers? Would I be better off looking for an alternative to Arcam?

    decisions decisions. :rotfl:

    thanks for any pointers

    The P75 and P75 Plus have similar technical specs but the 75 Plus definitely sounds better - about 20 component changes / additions make the difference. I would go for the 75 Plus.

    Having said that, the P80 is better again (retail £420) and the P85 is a bit better than that (retail £530). You pays your money and takes your choice, as they say :)

    If you want to triamp your speakers you can do that at any time as the amplifiers can be daisy chained.

    HTH.
