In terms of stereo sound quality, what 2 channel amps compare equally to the AVR 300
the A85 or A90
I would disagree, the stereo performance on the AVR300 is good but no t that good, it is really only on a par with the A80 at best and certainly not the A85 or A90.
Had a comment from a dealer when I was looking at adding a secondhand A22 to my AV300 + P25/3 that the difference would not be great! Did I miss out on a bargin then?
I agree with Crusty.
The AVR300 is a superb all rounder, it is excellent value for money, but speaking personally It doesn't do 2 channel work good enough for me. I still use it as an AV amp running 5.1 but have since moved quite a long way up the ladder, to the gear in my signature.
I have spoken here before about what I tried at my dealer and why I thought the MF stuff so much better.
Others will surely disagree and you need to spend only what you are comfortable in spending.
yeap, sure guys. I was only repeating what I have read on the forums. I haven't heard the A85/90 myself. Only the compaired the A32 with the AVR300
I agree. I demoed A90 against AVR300 and the A90 was far better to my ears. More detail and less distortion. But then I have perfect pitch and prefer music to movies.
But hey, everyone's different!
