ASAP opinions needed...pls?
Wasnt it the early 80's when people went MOSFET crazy?
My options that I am considering:
VSP Labs Transmos 150 watts per channel,,1983
Perraux 2500 B....270 watts per ch...vintage 1983
these two were reviewed by stereo Review then
Van Alstine 250 Omega III,,,,based on a Hafler 220 (125 watts per side)
Dynaco Stereo 400...20o watts per side.
PS Audio PS 200C...also reviewed by Stereo something...
The pre amp will be a McIntosh C26,,,Rega Planet CDP, and speakers..maybe Signet, Meadowlark, Platinum Audio Duos...not sure yet.
perhaps it would depend if you plan on modding the amp. some have wonderful potential and others probably not so much.
Well, I ended up origonally with a Lazarus H-1A class A SS/tube hybrid, and then went all tubes...
Berning EA-230 and TF-10 preamp driving Quad ESL-63's...magic!
If you come across a PS Audio 200c and don't want it, I'd probably be interested. With a little sprucing up it could become a very very good amp. As far as the power supply goes, it's supposed to have the goods.
I did a cap upgrade to a Dynaco 416 years ago and cleaned up the output some and it beat out a Nakamichi PA-7 playing into a KEF system.
Can't say much about the other amps, might be ok. I dunno, I'd be of the mind to go with the one with the best power supply. You don't have that, you got nuttin'. Any of the older ones could probably use a "rebuild" if you wanted to get serious.
If your present system is so magic, why the need to change?
