Cxa 60 vs cxa 80


Active Member
Has anybody else had both of these amps?
I had the cxa60 for around a month, loved it. But there was a nagging voice in my head saying you should have had the 80.
After a month I gave in and 'upgraded' to the 80.
I can Honestly say I'm a bit disappointed with the 80. Its just not got the mid tones that the 60 had. The 60 was lively, warm and filled the room, where as the 80 feels clinical and cold. It's got loads of bass and power. ... It just feels like it falls short in the mid range section
Has anyone else had these two amps and has felt the same?

I want to upgrade my CD player next, will a player with a built in preamp fill the gaps?

Wish I'd kept my 60!
