RE: Quad and Benchmark amps: same type?

> You probably have shite speakers if good, normal amps sound "dull", maybe the speakers sound dull...

Your facile remarks are totally uncalled for.

Regarding my speakers I have Avantgarde horn speakers and Quad 2905s. I notice you have Quads - earlier and not as good as the 2905s. The Avantgardes are about double the price of the Quads and, although perhaps less suitable for classical than the Quads, they're generally better for most other music - more exciting. In fact, good enough for Stereophile to award them Joint Loudspeaker of the Year - together with an $85,000 Dynaudio system. Shite is not an apt description of either of my speaker systems - perhaps you'd have the courtesy to acknowledge?

Before making a fool of yourself in future, you can always click on user's profile and take a quick peep at their equipment list.

I was not deriding or dismissing the Benchmark, just making an observation that most reviewers have also picked up. It's certainly dead quiet (the feature that the other AG owner considered the most important feature in an amp) but it, like a lot of "professional" stuff is dull in the home hi-fi situation.
