Do you mean this particular case or generally - the audio world? I guess that for some people born in the 90s, this time might already be considered as the 'Retro' and now, the question remains - should it be? Is it already?'90's' - you'll have a to go back a bit further than that to go 'Retro'
It’s not an incomplete product, just a different one.Shouldnt the lack of streaming service support be considered a minus, considering the cheaper excellent competetion from Nad, Naim, Cambridge Audio and many others ? For this 6999 asking price I would expect a complete product
The Nad M33 also has a build quality that in my opinion exceeds this from Technics
For that price, 7000 quid, considering the really good competition that come with streaming services, I think its appropriate to expect a more complete product.It’s not an incomplete product, just a different one.
I took it to mean that a streaming module is the only part likely to become obsolete one day, therefore buying ‘just’ an integrated amplifier at least ensures it will as complete as it was ever intended to be for the entirety of its useful life.Ahh yes. Less is more. I get it. Pay ablot more and get fewer features
