Hi all
Want to know how is sonic quality of vintage cosmic amp. Is it comparable with entry level amp like marantz, dennon?
I spotted one in market, would like to hear from expert before I buy.

I heard cosmic had tieup with Akai. Was it only for truntable or also for amplifier products?
Thanks

Cosmic amplifiers were designed as Solid State technology and shouldn't comparable with Marantz or Denon amplifiers (New).

It could be very good for Turntable, but you can use it as normal use of Amplifier but keep in mind that the sound quality would be different than new integrated ones.

Vintage amps has lot more compared to the current day Amplifiers in my opinion. I have checked two amplifier of Modern and Vintage almost on same Watts output and Price,But Vintage is competently a Winner.
Vintage system might lack the speed and dynamics but they are way far from Modern Amps when it comes to Warmness.
