Does anybody know this amplifier from Audio Research?
This could be an upgrade from my Krell KAV 500I. I want to use it with Focal electra speakers.
Thanks in advance!

I'm really posting this to advise you that this integrated was reviewed by "the absolute sound" in their August 2010 issue, so you might want to check out what they have to say about it, although personally I take everything they say with a wheelbarrow load of salt

WAUW!! I bought a demo model from a German HIFI store..it´s an incredible amp and a big upgrade from the KAV 500i.
The vocals sound amazing and it still has some burn in time to do.

Burning in? Sounds more like it's your brain getting used to the sound that your ears are hearing.
The "experimenter expectancy effect" at work?

And the scientific principle behind this "burning in" is ...........?

With all the respect SpotcheckBilly.. but i don't care about scientific principles and i have my own opinions that are important for me. That's all i have to say about that.
Don't take it personal.
