audiophile grade integrated amp- suggestions needed.

Luxman Amplifiers India


Mar 7, 2011
Hi. I am new on this forum. I had been following various posts since last year.
I am currently setting up my 2 chanel system for audiophiling. This would be my 2nd setup.
Fot HT setup i am having: pioneer vsx 1020k, lg bluray player, wdtv live hub 1tb media player, yamaha ns8390 floorstands and Boston Acoustics xs surround speakers.
Speaker cable- platinum 1.3 sq.mm. cable.
Im happy with the HT setup.
Now i want to move further for doing a seperate 2 chanel setup for audiophiling. I ve started up with DNM a777 integrated amp (150w rms/chanel) with jamo s606 floorstands. 90% of my music is digital compressed media like mp3 and flacs. I was using wdtv live media player. But not happy with the sound quality. SO i recently bought popcorn hour a410 media player which has ess sabre audiophile grade dac chip and can perform as a network dlna streamer plus NAS. By hooking up this in my setup augmented tremendous sonic improvement in the sound quality with clear instrument seperation. Cables used are DAC 16awg speaker cables with DAC rca interconnects which improved the sound clarity more.
Now i want to upgrade my integrated amp (currently uaing DNM a777). I ve shortlisted marantz pm6005 and Cambridge audio Azur 651a. My budget is approx 50k for amp.
Guys i want your suggestions/advice on amp which will suit/match with jamo s606. Or else should i upgrade speakers as well? Please help.
