I picked up the P3 this morning - though frankly, James warned me not to. He had it on a cart to wheel out to the car. Should’ve taken his advice. Now my back is out
Just kidding. But seriously - be careful. I did almost drop it. It may be the baby of the line, but daaayam : ). My listening room is slightly tilted in the direction of the rack now.
I know the whole thing in the amp and power area is to go for Overkill, but for me, Killin’ is just fine. How Dead does the shizz have to be?, I ask you. As has been previously established, this can run a pair of M700’s and all your other gear, up to very high peaks without breaking a sweat, all regenerated. So - fully fab for the majority of us humble folk.
ATTN: EARLY ADOPTERS (and any other potential owners): One pointer I got from James which AFAICT has not made it into the manual - or is not yet on the first page, where it belongs in BOLD TYPE, is - DO NOT FLIP the HC/REGEN SWITCH when powered up. YMMV (your manual may vary).*
It is a thing I can see having wanted to do myself if I hadn’t been told in advance. As in, “Hey, what’s the difference in sound between HC and REGEN? Nice - I can just flip the switch!”
NEIN. NOT. DO NOT TRY.
Anyhow - here’s a place to post your impressions and questions. Give me the weekend to sort out how this compares with my aged P3 : )
BTW - re: the Manual, as I in no way want to detract from it with the above comments - LOVE the Large Format, Large Type, clarity and detail.
- EDIT: THE MANUAL SAYS NOT TO DO IT IN BOLD CAPS on page 8. I tend not to read manuals right away. Dumb, I know, but I’m guessing I’m not alone, especially with something fairly straightforward or that I have owned before like this unit.
