What amp. Do you own now and how do you compare it to the 640a v2 or other older Cambridge, I still really like the sound of them and can be picked up for a song
Im not able to compare the 640v2 directly with any other CA amp as I owned one before I owned a 540v2. I can compare a 540v2 with a Marantz pm5005 however. The CA is a better amp than the Marantz in both build quality and sound quality.

I did run a 640v2 with Monitor Audio Gold reference 10 speakers. Surprisingly the amp was capable, plenty of detail but a little bright with the c cam drivers.

Old CA amps punch well above their weight and price point.
