I’m thinking about upgrading my Naim NAP 250 power amp (1997) to the M700 mono-blocks and have some questions. My speakers are Dynaudio Excite X38.
The listed dimensions say that the each amp is 3" high. Does that include the feet? I’m a little space restricted and only have 7" of height between shelves in my rack and both amps would have to be stacked on the same shelf.
In one of the online reviews that I read it mentioned that the amps sounded better when they were NOT stacked but on separate stands. Now, that could be due to several reasons that have nothing to do with the amps being stacked, but I wonder of any users could comment if they’ve had the same experience.
Other amps under consideration are the Parasound A21 and the Anthem MCA 225. Can comment on their performance relative to the M700?
I use a Power Plant Premier and before that a P600 and have accumualted a lot of respect for Paul and PS Audio over the years, but I want to make sure that I make the right decision first time if I change amps.
