Good Points
Spacious sound.Very impressive levels of detail. Superb treble clarity. Vocals sound great, especially female vocals.Great build and a smart piece of equipment.

Bad Points
This amp can make poor quality recordings sound awful as it is very revealing. Unfortunately most commercial recordings vary greatly in this respect.
Bass response slightly disappointing-weak.

General Comments
I use this A3 amplifier from Musical Fidelity with the matching a3 CD player. Very pleasing results through my BW 604 loudspeakers. With high quality recordings this combo sounds fantastic. The midrange and treble is stunning, however the bass is generally pleasing but not exactly in the same league as the mid and highs. That is not to say that the bass is not well formed. It is but it is slightly weak.

I have owned this for some years and the sound has got better over time. To hear this combo at its best, high quality connections are required. also the power cords should be binned immediately and replaced with high quality ones. The change in sound quality is very worthwile indeed.

If you can find this amp at a discounted price, as it is being replaced, it is well worth owning. It is capable of outperforming many more expensive amps. When buying I compared it with amps costing three times as much and in my opinion the improvements in sound quality over the a3 were little if any.
