olds1959special Posted March 29 Share Posted March 29 While waiting for the Rega Brio to arrive I picked up another amp to experiment with. I found a vintage Luxman receiver R-115 and it sounds pretty good. It does 70 watts into 8 ohms. I wanted to see if I needed the additional power over the Brio which is 50 watts. I found I hardly turn the amp up so I probably don't need the extra power, and as well it seems pretty bass heavy to the point where I turned down the woofer and turned up the tweeter of the 2Ci's a little to compensate. I think it's fun to listen to this amp, it has a definite presence to it and sounds balanced. It may not be the last word in fidelity, I feel it adds a bit of euphonic distortion which gives it some character. I am looking for something a bit more 'pure' though, but for now this is a good amp to listen to. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
