arcam advice
I am in progress in building a jordan jx923 into a 48" high

I am tempted to purchase an arcam amp off ebay, maybe the A80 !
I already have a pioneer precision cd player. Has anyone any opions on this setup. Could I do better than the Arcam but will be holding onto the pioneer.
Thanks for any advice

if the A80 relatively cheap then go ahead and bid for it.

Then you will have a reference to compare to when you start building your own amplifiers.

Thanks for the reply.
I take it you would build your own!
Can you suggest a project amp........
Should have inputs for turntable, cassette deck & cd player........

I would have started with just a power amp.
Have a look at the ESP projects and articles for inspiration.
