    Bit of an earlier era Pioneer fan having had a PL12D as a younger man a Trichord Revelation CD player based on a Pioneer stable platter machine, and a Trichord Digital Turntable, again a Pioneer stable platter machine ( 505 i think ) and currently running an A 300R Precision amp, which sounds stunning, which has a remote by the way and a balance control.

    Cheers Chris

    I had an A300r Precision from Hyperfi with matching CD player. I don't remember it as sounding as good as the A400 but I think my speakers would have been the limiting factor.

    I now think you should blow all your budget on the best speakers you can afford then amp, then source and finally cables.

    Wasted so much time and money on source first theory.

    And of course the 2nd most important thing is speaker set up.

    I'm now trying Ken Ishiwata's recommendation on placement to great effect.

    A400 is a stunning bit of kit and if you like it check out the other versions such as the A656... those are monster amps all stemming I believe from the A400 platform.
    Adios for Now,

    Here is an A656, bit Pricey though! But I would say is probably all the Amplifier you'd ever need!

    As nice as the A400 sounds it’s just a shame it looks so dated and cheap looking.
