    I am looking for some veiws on the mf a308 integrated amp & the avi lab series integrated amp - i have listened to both in the s/rooms and was very impressed with both. i am currently running cyrus cd8+psxr as source into nad c162 pre + 2x nad c272 power amps vertically bi-amped - speakers mission 783s - the local dealer wont allow home auditions - i know it boils down to listening to each unit - but i would like some veiws as to what would be considerd the right way to go.

    If you are serious about buying the amp and a home dem is not available I suggest you take your CD player and speakers to the shop if at all possible, bit of a drag I kmnow but you will be in a position to decide which is better with your existing kit.

    Have you ruled out a Cyrus amp?

    Took your suggestion and finally left shop with the mf308 a notable upgrade on the nad setup - i am really pleased with the new amp. i did look at the cyrus 8 + prsx first but i felt it was not substantial enough improvement over existing kit bt thankyou for the suggestion. i am currently using chord cobra interconnects & qed airlock speaker cables - any suggestions were i might improve on these would be appreciated.

    cheers

    Welcome to the MF club :)

    I am currently using Chord Odyssey 4 biwire speaker cable and Chord Chameleon Silver Plus interconnects.

    Considering a move to Townsend Isolda or one of the higher up Chord cables.

    Also heard good things said about Kimer cables.

    I tried QED SA biwire but felt the Chord Odyssey was better, not in the same way as when you change a component but I thought it was worth the change.

    Best to borrow some from the dealer rather than buying or do as I did and get them used from ebay etc then you can sell on at little loss if there is no improvement. Cables can cause a fair few arguments :D

    HTH
