Hey guys, I have a question about Parasound A21, because I'm leaning towards to buy one of this amps.
I've heard a lot of gear up to date, excluding Parasound. I have Benchmark DAC2 HGC and I want stereo power amplifier. I'm reading quite a lot of positive comments about this A21 machine. But do you find it to sound slow or something like so? I had XTZ, HK 990, Denon A100, Roksan Kandy MK3, NAD 218 THX, some high-end Rotels, and a couple of other fat amps and every amp, especially the "fat" ones are very dynamic restricted. I'm talking about the microdynamics, very, very sleepy sound with sometimes a very slow incoherent bass... On the other hand my personal Pioneer A-A9 MK2 is the best in expressing emotions, it has no dynamic restrictions, absolutely stunning amplifier beating some of the most expensive ones. It has flows, it doesn't have full bodied sound and it's overall on the thin and dry side. I've read that the Parasound A21 doesn't have negative feedback which is a plus, I've heard the NAD S300 which also doesn't have negative feedback and is very nice one, a more like my Pioneer with a little more control and finesse but they are very comparable.
Thanks for your answers in advance!
