    You might try connecting your speakers in series so as to increase the impedance, just to see if this changes the situation.

    Apparently wharfedale recommend amps from 20w to 100w so the Cambridge should have no problem

    Well just on the off chance I contacted Novatron Korea, designers of my preamp/server, and explained the issue,I got a simple one sentence reply, we will clear this bug via the next firmware update at the end if the month. Thanks for all your replies

    So it would seem Grant,a problem they must have been aware of if they're preparing a fix,it's odd the issue didn't show up whilst using my quad 306 which is why I thought it must be the Cambridge 651w, you live n learn eh

    The Quad 306 has pretty high input sensitivity. You probably didn't have the levels as high for the same volume.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
