Surely the designers and builders deserve a bit more respect than that. Maybe you bought the wrong product for your needs. You did audition it, I presume?
I think you've misunderstood the spirit of my post.
I love the amp, and I love the sound.
I would like, however, to reduce the amount of noise on the phono stage, it's not critical , but it's a "would like"...
As Pivot said, I'll bet the original spec was for better AX and AU7's , and a Japanese accountant reduced the spec to save a few Yen.
I'll look at rolling those , see if it reduces the noise floor a bit.
You'll hear Angel Trumpets and Devil Trombones...you are invited.
