Among all the rooms I liked the one on the 8th floor the best- the one with the high end Monitor Audio and Sonus Fabers. They had connected the speakers with good gear too (Macintosh, Accuphase) so the sound was sublime! I did like the big Monitor Audio set up (actually mistook them for Dynaudios!) but that was until I heard the Sonus Fabers. Whoa! Now, that was something else!
I was exited to listen Marantz SR8012,but sadly it did not sounded as powerful as its spects tell or I expected.Yes it was controlling speakers well,but for the price you pay,its not that great.I listened 2 of them with different speakers.
Wow. I haven't heard this one. So Nagra, which was considered a decent brand when owned by the Swiss (for sales and service), is now acquired by an Indian company and there are usual after sales issues (if it is true). Definitely sad state of affairs.
This issue occurred when Nagra was still with the Swiss family... Almost 5-6 years back and that too mono blocks....Numerous instances I have come across where the authorised dealers take months to replace a faulty speaker after a lot of persistance... It should never get to such levels for such expensive products...And that is the sole reason why I buy from abroad because I know if something goes wrong, I will be on my own and even then the cost difference is such that I can easily afford to fly to the host country and get it repaired...
