…I’m just wondering if the 700 will be a great improvement over the Sunfire which is a 7 channel amp. giving out 400 watts into 8ohm and 800 watts into 4ohms. I have the Magnepan 3.8 and new center speakers which demand power, the more the merrier. I’ve had the Sunfire for so many years that I cannot, for the life of me, remember when I purchased it (used from audiogon.com). It has to have been something like 15 years ago, but I’m just guessing.
I don’t like the “raspy” sound that I’m getting. I don’t believe that its the Maggies or the Audioquest cables that I am using. I am an audiophile and love classical music as well as classic movies and, to some degree, the 4K block busters that are available on disc. But, I want to hear deep into the music and have the inner details of the orchestra audible in the soft musical passages as well as the full orchestra loud passages. I don’t believe that I can go any further with the Sunfire which needs a good retirement home (actually, I’m trading it in for six 700’s which I’m eager to receive either at the end of this week or next week). (I also have the OPPO 205 4k audiophile player in use.)
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks, in advance
