  1. Happy Yamaha A-S2200 owner here! This is a high end Japanese unit that never fails to satisfy my hi-fi jones. Mine replaced a vintage Marantz 2245. It is paired with mint Chorus IIs. XLR connects is a nice feature. Highly recommended...and they come in silver!
  2. "Theme For A Movie That Never Happened" by Eric Clapton. Instrumental acoustic guitar with an orchestra behind him.
  3. No experience with Bryston. I have had the A-S2200 (90 wpc)for several years. No issues. I rarely can get it up 1/3 power. Very clean, solid and punchy bass, and I hear nuances I never did with my old Marantz. XLR connects. It has a lot of positive reviews. I added a Schiit Lokius tone control unit for further enhancement. With VU meters and silver...it's a winner!
  4. Kevin, I have a great CD player, the Yamaha CD-S2100. It has an internal DAC, plus XLR connects, comes in silver or black. It is upper level-ish Japanese high fidelity. I love mine...in silver of course. My friend has a Schiit Freya+ tube preamp, it punches way above it's price point. It also has XLR connects and comes in silver or black. USA made. I also have 2 Schiit Modius tone control units, also have XLRs. it is the icing on my hi-fi and head-fi systems. Just a friendly recommendation.
  5. Curious if this will be a 2 channel or home theatre system? Also what is your budget for the preamp and cd player?
  6. DAC - Yamaha CD-S2100 (internal) Amp - Yamaha A-S2200 integrated. + Schiit Modius tone controls Speakers - Chorus II. Head-Fi system: Schiit Bifrost 2 DAC Schiit Modius tone controls Schiit Jotunheim headphone amp ifi Zen Stream Klipsch HP-3 headphones... Streaming Tidal...sounds fantastic!
  7. Just got a new Camaro LT1! It absolutely adds the excitement factor to the driving experience. Love it!
  8. Fellow Chorus II fella here. Pushing 'em with a Yamaha A-S2200 integrated @ 90 WPC. I added a Schiit Lokius Tone Control unit, which I can dial in more clean bass with, and of course more or less mids and highs. I don't feel the need for a sub. I rarely can turn the volume up to even 1/3. The listening experience is fantastic! Very cllean power with presence and detail. Just my experience with what I have.
  9. From a time when it was important, if you were a music lover, to have quality hi-fi. But, who was Mr Benson?
  10. So you sent back the Model 30 and got a cheerful, fast refund?
