Hey Community, I have been looking for a replacement for my Technics sa-818 that has been giving me issues with repair cost greater than I am willing to spend. My last two vintage receivers have cost $ to maintain so I am looking to purchase new / refurb with a $700 budget. I have been looking at the following. Emotiva PT-100 + A300 Yamaha A-S801 Marantz PM7005 Marantz PM6006 I use the DAC in my Pioneer N-50 so if you have any preamp suggestions that do not include a DAC I would be ok with it. System includes a U-turn Orbit turntable with a Grado Prestige Blue1, Pioneer DV-45A for CD/SACD playback, Pioneer N-50, Forte ( Bob Crites TI diaphragms & updated crossovers) Any thoughts our suggestions?
Item: Jeff Rowland Model 112 amplifier Price: $1,800 shipped (lower 48) SOLD Location: Franklin, PA 16323 Trades: Different amp, amp/preamp combo, integrated? More pics available. Only lets me upload one here due to file size restrictions. PM me. One of the finest quality components to ever grace my rack. This is an amp that looks as good as it sounds. Attention to detail has gone into every step of the design and build process. At 150 wpc at 8 ohms and 275 wpc at 4 ohms, it has the power to drive just about any speaker available. The sound is smooth and inviting, yet detailed and articulate. The amp is in excellent condition overall with just a few very minor rub marks on the aluminum chassis (hence the conservative 7/10 rating above). Detailed photos available to interested parties. Amp will ship in its original box and packaging. Owner's manual is included. Todd Warnke at SoundStage sums up the Model 112 here:"In all, the Rowland Model 112 is the definition of jewel-like mass. Everything about it is designed with careful thought, attention to detail, and with a music-lover's heart. The tonal response -- full, accurate, but tight and extended on bottom; mids that are detailed if just a whisper lean; highs that are extended, sweet, detailed and grain-free -- leads to hours of inviting, fatigue-free listening. The limitless power of the Model 112 allows listening to anything, from after-hours ambient to full-scale orchestra. Sonic cues and musical detail are ample, if not quite to the level of the super amps (and Rowland has several of those to offer you should you have the budget). And the Model 112 presents a stage that is wide, deep and stable. All this combines to create a slightly laid-back character that makes for an easy long-term partner.This is an amp that's exquisitely honed to do a difficult job with unflappable control. It never runs out of steam, it goes all the way to the bottom of the musical scale with as complete composure as it goes to the top. It digs deep into a recording and delivers the goods without edge or glare. Add in a design that simply beautiful and you have an amp for people who appreciate quality, will pay for it, and then settle down for the long run with their choice....Todd Warnketodd@soundstage.com"FEATURES· XLR input connectors for balanced (Differential Modeä) system configuration.· RCA input Connectors for unbalanced system configurations.· Selectable overall gain of 26 or 32 dB.· User selectable switching between balanced and unbalanced connections.· 12V remote ON/OFF power switching connector.· Automatic temperature stabilizing circuitry maintains constant operating temperature.· CE approved speaker output connectors requiring no tools for tight connections.· Automatic bias adjustment maintains optimal bias setting regardless of source material or loudspeaker load.· Standby power condition reduces warm-up time.· Fail-safe operation provided by user-resetable thermal circuit breakers located on rear panel.· Quiet, transient-free operation during power and function mode switching.· Automatic input muting under anomalous input or output operating conditions.· Fully-balanced Differential Modeä circuit topology implemented from input to output.· Low resonance, structurally integrated chassis constructed of precision-machined aircraft grade aluminum.SPECS· Output Power:· Continuous RMS watts @ 8 ohms 150 watts @ 4 ohms 275 watts· Power Bandwidth: DC to 160 kHz, -3 dB·· Slew Rate: 30 volts/microsecond· THD + Noise: <.008%· Damping Factor: >60, 20 to 20 kHz· Gain (1 watt, 8 ohms): User Selectable Internal Jumper, 26 dB or 32 dB· Input Impedance: 40k ohms· Common Mode Rejection Ratio: >80 dB, 20 – 20 kHz· Absolute Phase: Phase-Inverted· Power Supply: 500 VA toroidal transformer with 100,000 MFD total storage capacitance.
