You obviously have never heard a set working correctly if you had you wouldn't think they sounded like a bucket of transistors!top class circuits lol what do you mean by that:-do away with fets used for switching and replace with mechanical ones?
Obviously indeed as I didn't take to the sound at all. I would have bought the full set as I fell in love with the looks but running the Tannoy 'Westminsters' I had at the time they sure didn't impress me. The mid range of the power amps I thought rather lacking in transparency and tonal richness. If memory serves me I was comparing them to my Audio Research D 70 Mk II. So, maybe I heard defective examples? They were demo models on loan from the retailer so I doubt they'd been modified. The remainder of your suggestions puzzle me. I guess there's some kind of irony involved but I don't get it. Sorry.
Sorry was being a bit ironic,just wondered what you meant by"top class circuits":-I have a very modern Chord power amp with probably some of the best modern,circuitry and WHEN my lecson is working right(not at the moment lol) the lecson sounds better:-
which power amp did you try:-the AP1 was so hit and miss my friend had 6 before he got one that sounded good and didn't smoke(not joking) the original AP3 was never too good sound wise,the AP1x sounds superb,the AP3mk2 even better:-but none are most reliable of things,the last 2 are from when Stan Curtis took over design and reworked the AC1 and designed completely new power amps
