It’s even more basic. couldCauseDivorce is always true.
Thank god the Classic boxes all look pretty much the same…I don’t think my wife twigged the 252/300 switch visually - she sure as heck noticed the sound though (I kept schtum) so that’s validation as far as I’m concerned!
Add my voice to those saying Wow!
When I got my 250 30-ish years ago, I had 72, basic LP12, Marantz CD52 2SE and Heybrook HB1s.
Yesterday it was doing a great job with a much better LP12, Superline, 52 and B&W 804 D3s.
Today, the 250 is out. I was expecting to buy (and get serviced) a pair of 135s. Instead, I bought a s/h 300DR. In my room and system, it gives exactly the benefits everyone else describes, but with absolutely no loss (quite the reverse) of foot-tapping boogie. Nothing has been transformed - it was a great system before - but the list of things that are definitely better is basically everything.
Very well put…I found exactly that…when I went from the 250 dr which was excellent…to an old non dr nap500… Things will get better and better…keep it powered all the time…enjoy.
Still growing into my recent 300dr addition. It is indeed an uplift from the 250dr. It does though I think require more care and thought on speaker position, cable dressing etc…it is revealing of both the good and any potential weaknesses.
I have recently relocated my set up and first priority is a dedicated mains supply and wall sockets.
I have also ordered the morgana din/xlr pair.
It is a wonderfully cohesive amp and I think a better match for my Olympica Nova 2s
I also need to stop fussing and start enjoying
