A little something, correction, a big heavy something has just been delivered to me. Just placed it in my room ready for the unboxing to begin. Looks like it could be an interesting weekend of testing
I would hope that it would be an improvement in quality. Not that the UPA-7 isn't a good quality power amp, but I'd expect the XPA-7 to be that little bit better. As my speakers are not so easy to drive, I would also expect the XPA-7 to handle them a little better - again, not that the UPA-7 isn't doing a good job. I'm just thinking that I should have a 'better' power amp with my speakers. The XPA-7 will (possibly) only be a small step, but it's affordable one. I'm still considering other options, but none are really standing out at the moment.Matt, what do you think the XPA-7 will bring you that the UPA-7 doesn't ?
Thanks Dodge, in your experience does that make a difference then? Also is the Onkyo plugged into the wall socket or power strip...? Looking forward to the pictures ;-)DodgeTheViper said:I've got it plugged directly into a wall socket. I've always done that with my amps, but have everything else plugged into an extension, I.e. media players, Sonos etc.
I've got some pics, just need to post them up.
