  1. Personally, If I were in your position I’d just go for a 3700 and and spend the rest on an external 2 channel power amp for the fronts, Hypex or Purifi. That is a much better proposition to the extra money the 4700 is to the 3700. Both the 3700 and 4700 have been measured very well and are to be good with music. You can keep the amp later on down the track if you were to switch out AVRs. As cwt has said unless you are a gamer the issues with hdmi 2.1 will not affect you. Also too 8k TVs at this stage , (and I’m bravely going to say this) for the next 5 years are flights of fancy. There i
  2. Good luck with the new system, planning on getting a second sub is a wise move to even the bass in a room 👍
  3. Oh I might also make mention, I’m using a Yamaha 3070 AVR which has only RCA pre outs. I’m using the monoprice RCA to XLR cables to connect to the power amps, as I believe there is a right and a wrong way to wire these things, and those were the ones recommended on other sites.
  4. To be honest I think the difference is not that substantial but it is clearly there. The Purifi seems to have a broader grip of the music at all frequencies and to me sounds slightly more airy with a good open soundstage bettering the NC252MP ( I know that sounds like a cliche ). When I switched from my NC500 amp to the Purifi, it was like I’d just upgraded to a better DAC in a way, such was the effect it had, which is pretty good by the way to begin with (to my ears). This is all above the obvious difference of the power of each unit. I’m a firm believer of hav
  5. I did order though the VTV web site, they do build the amps to order and they configure to 240v knowing the delivery address is Australia. In the past when they started building, there were some build quality issues which I believe they have sorted. Ive had two units from them, one the Purifi Eval1 and then the 5 channel which is 3 Purifi and one NC252MP module. I did have a hum develop in one of the purifi amp modules which I contacted Warren about. In the end Warren sent me a replacement amp module which i swapped out (these amps are very plug and play these days) and has been run
  6. Don’t know if you would be interested in these two suggestions I’ve seen over at Audio Science Review a guy building multi channel amps in case you are interested. His quality control is quite good apparently. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/buckeye-amps-new-us-based-hypex-multichannel-amplifier-builder-line-up-announcement.16835/ Also too I purchased some multichannel Purifi / NC252MP amps from VTV as well, and have been very happy with them. They also do 8 channel hypex as well like this one. https://vtvamplifier.com/product/vtv-ampli
  7. Item: Extra Info: Second owner here but well looked after had only used a few times then not needed so has been in a drawer for a while. there is a slight mark on the leather case which was due to the previous owner connecting the device to the phone with some tape. Have all the cables and charger however no original box. Photos: Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  8. Between the two amps, I’d personally go for the Denon, I believe that model measures well (3700) and also has a preamp mode for 2 or all channels that is more than competent even comparing to a dedicated preprocessor. You could spend the difference on some hypex multichannel amps. I see that Denon are starting to release ”A” model with the fix for theHDMI 2.1 issues, so i wonder if the 4700/3700 A models are far off as well ? Here a link to the 3700 review if you are interested in that sort of analysis https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/denon-avr-
  9. Further information: Absolutely incredible amp. Just 16 months old, buying from a fellow member here on Stereonet. These Hypex modules have been so great I’ve decided to upgrade to a full multichannel, so selling this two channel one. Its the genuine Hypex SMPS1200A700 https://www.hypex.nl/product/smps1200a700/137 (not the usual 400 most suppliers are using with the NC500 buildS 2 x Hypex NCore NC500 Modules + 1200-1500w PSU • SNR 135dB • Distortion: THD+N - - 0.001 % 20Hz • Frequency Response: 0 - 50k

  11. I think you’d have a good choice of options. Depending on the money that you’d wish to spend and the level of setup you’ve be comfortable with. Roon could be installed on your pc and has iPad apps. With that software you’d be up for ongoing subscription, and depending on your pc skills would have a little setup. I also second the idea of the bluesound node 2i for you as another simpler option.
  12. information: I have been using this amp for my home theatre for the last two years, they really do offer great bang for buck in terms of watt to dollar. They have many positive reviews online here is one from ASR https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-crown-xls-1502-amp.6062/ I have the boxes to ship but would prefer a local buyer.

  13. Hi Derek, thanks for the interest but I’m trying to keep this item local.
  14. Spec sheet Yes, the game has certainly changed now, progress is good... Re the spec for 4 Ohm that is actually correct, here is the official spec sheet from hypex
