“accuphase e-206”

Written on: 27/12/2012 by vonhagen (1 review written)

tons of power, this is not your average integrated amp, like all accupase products it is built like a tank and blows away mcintosh at same power rating. this amp has everything one could desire and the sound is sweet and airy. these amps are hard to find and if you can find one buy it! it rivals separates costing 3 times its price and you can use it separately as a power amp or preamp and for biamp. and if your into vinyl it has both mm and mc and a superb headphone amp as well able to drive… Read Full Review

Interesting you mention the Audeze LCD-2's.. does it drive them well? I'm interested as I own the LCDS2's and am thinking about buying the E-206?

“This beautifully built, champagne-gold integrated...”

Written on: 02/06/2002 by Peter Coolsma. (1 review written)

This beautifully built, champagne-gold integrated Accuphase E-206 amplifier is a dream come true for me: I saw it on the shelves in stores some 10 years ago and was in complete awe.
But then, I was happy with my Rotel 840 BX2 and only until weeks ago, I still was.
To cut a long story short; I realized my dream at the price of a serious, yet still not really spectacular new amp in the regions of a new upper-mid quality amp -for example from Marantz, Denon or Rotel. OK, the Accuphase is 10 years… Read Full Review

Thank you for highlighting the joys of Accuphase ownership. I was fortunate to be able to purchase a new Accuphase E-212 last year (a successor to the E-211 and presumably great-great grandson of the 206). I auditioned a number of amplifiers in search of ideal piano reproduction. Many amplifiers produced a nice sound; the Accuphase reproduced each individual note! I haven't inspected the power supply but the amplifier weighs a ton and seems built to military specifications. If you want to be able to tell the difference between MP3s and true CD quality, find an Accuphase and enjoy

I have 2 Accuphase E 202's, as I love this amp that much! For about $400 for each, they are a steal and sound wonderful. I also have a Mac 4100 rec, and though I had always wanted a Mac and thought them to be the ultimate choice, the E 202 simply surpasses the Mac, although an amp vs. rec comparison - HEAVY!! The unit has a nice silver face and retro meter's. Get one before they are gone!!

I bought my Accuphase E202 used, in 1977. It's still going strong, and I still can't believe how good it sounds, even though it's 30 years old. It's driving an equally ancient pair of AR 2ax speakers, which also sound pretty good, though could use a little help at the high end. I'm so pleased to hear that Accuphase is still making such solid products, even though I would never be able to buy one at current prices.

This is for nroberts and his E-202. That Accuphase dealer is a real loser, the Accuphase distributor here in Australia told me he had several full sets of spares for the E-202!!!! Accuphase have a POLICY of fully supporting ALL their products, regardless of age. So, that UK dealer is a liar, and just wants you to buy new. nroberts, if you are happy with your E-202, it may pay to source the part you need and get it fixed by a good audio technician. New Accuphase gear costs a fortune, so if you weren't planning on replacing the 202, I'd try to fix it. Send me an email at iaincmcghee@yahoo.com.au, at the very least I can give you the telephone number of the Australian distributor! No Accuphase spares will be cheap, in fact they are expensive, but it would be thousands of pounds cheaper than a new Accuphase amp...

On a historical note, I purchased an Accuphase E202 integrated amplifier in 1974 (yes). It never needed repair and its life ended at the beginning of this year (2003) only because the sole agent in this Country couldn't or wouldn't mend it after the power switch failed.
<br>
<br>During those 29 years, it produced smooth, deep and true sound, excellent for my classical taste in music. So impressed was I that I now have no option now but to try and get the cash together to replace it with an E212.

<br>Built to military specifications? You bet!

I've been looking all over the net for info on the Accuphase E-205 integrated amp, I just got one on e-bay (for about half its value were I to buy it in a audiophile shop AND it's in excellent condition) and it's good to see how highly regarded Accuphase are - not a bad purchase for my first ever amp eh? Can't wait until the courier arrives with it next week, until then I'm hungrily devouring as many reviews/articles etc as I can - thanks for the review. I'm a bit uncertain about my source - a Rotel RCD 930AX which is a great little entry level CD player, but I have a feeling that the Accuphase is going to scrutinise it, find it "acceptable", but just that...hopefully the speakers I am almost settled on will marry with the Accuphase, they're Amber Bambinos, which despite being a bookshelf have the same drivers as a $3,300 ProAc floorstander - and sound even better than the ProAcs at a third of the cost. We'll see. My audiophile store were ecstatic that I was getting an E-205, and assured me the Rotel would be fine, and the Ambers would be driven much better by it than the previous amp I was going to buy, a Denon from '92, 65x2 into 8 ohms, clean sound - but, the proof of the pudding is in the tasting, or hearing. Accuphase owners in the main seem to be very religious about the products, it's quite heartening really. I've been using the Rotel with a NAD 3020 which isn't mine, lovely amp but just not powerful enough for me, I strongly suspect a quantum leap in my music very soon. I'm going to write a E-205 review after a few weeks, there's almost none on the net, just ppl saying how good they are.
