I always wanted to have a Threshold S-350e 150 Watts a channel (back in the 90's was $3,900) or the Nakamichi PA-7 STASIS 200 Watts a channel ($1,595) but I could not afford either one. All I could afford back then was the Nakamichi Receiver No. 1 rated 80 Watts a channel. Still working fine on my daughter's room.
Just recently I purchased a used receiver RE-1, and the receiver AV-1 100 watts a channel to power TVs in other rooms.
Also, I got me a used Nakamichi amplifier PA-7 Stasis and the Nakamichi CA-5 preamplifier to drive my new B&W 805 D3s. The sound is amazing good! I listen to LPs and 24/96 files from a PC using an external DAC.
I listened to many other amps like the Parasound A21, the Bryston 28B mono, Mark Levinson 331, Rotel RB1590, Classe CA200, Ayre stuff, Audio Research D130, VT100, VT200 and many other tube gear companies and finally I'm very happy with the Nakamichi gear.
