Just got back from our hols which I always feel we are privileged to be able to have given that some time ago, for seven years in a row actually, we couldn't afford one. Anyway now I'm back I wanted to know from anyone who has one of these amps and what the quality of the straight stereo is like. Yes I did ask this question before but more of you may have purchased said item and therefore more of you may be able to give some type of appraisal. By the way I believe the next issue of Hi-Fi News is doing a review of this son of behemoth, but whether they are testing its av credentials or its stereo quality I don't know. I realise it probably won't match £2k stand alone hi-fi amps, and I accept every body has a preference but to have some idea of its hi-fi sound would be appreciated.
