Sound is good, but there is hum

  • Excerpt: 川崎のヨドバシカメラで試聴。店員さん 暇そうだったんでアンプの比較試聴お願いしました。 デノンとオンキョーとマランツ・・・結果は以下の通り。 デノン:PMA-CX3:音場感抜群も低域の力強さに欠ける。 オンキョー:A-1VL:全体的に音が分厚いが、分解能いまいち。 オンキョー:A-5VL:上記より音が薄くってパワー感不足。ボリューム上げると団子状態。 マランツ:PM7003:分解能最高で解像度◎。全域のバランスよくクラシックが一番安心して聴けた。 ただし、試聴環境最悪・・・周りがうるさく、上記評価はぱっと聴きでの評価です。...
