    I owned the Master-9, and have no clue if it sounds similar to the Master 10. In terms of Chi-Fi, I definitely prefer my Kinki EX-M1 to the sound of the Master 9. However, you could definitely look at the used market for that Hegel H360 that has already been mentioned, or try and find an H-300 (the predecessor) which would be in your price range as well.

    Also, if you are looking for help and impressions, being kind and thankful to the people trying to help you is always a good idea.

    Spending $2000 on A-GD is more dumb than spending $5000 on a Rockna Wavelight DAC.

    Probably you're right, I don't know., but $5000 for just a DAC are not pennies..

    Well, if you don't see a problem with how you essentially barged into a online bar and shouted "hey fuckers is this a good amp" before buying a pint and saying hello to the locals, then I can't help you there.

    However, I'd recommend going to the Audio Marts (www.ukaudiomart.com for the EU) and go to integrated amps, sort by price, and go from there. Heres a link.

    https://www.ukaudiomart.com/classifieds/56-solid-state-integrated-amplifiers/?sortby=price_desc

    and if you're willing to pay shipping

    https://www.usaudiomart.com/classifieds/56-solid-state-integrated-amplifiers/?sortby=price_desc

    Good luck matey.

    Not many ppl here have great experiences with Audio-gd gear so him continuously asking about anything about it was like getting blood from a turnip.

    If all he heard elsewhere was how great it is on other boards, then he should just get it and be happy.

    He'll end up getting the Master 10 anyway. A used H360 still goes for around 3500USD, which is headed toward the "crazy and idiot" direction. The ones asking for less often have conditions (no electronic payment, + palpay fees, etc.)

    I mean, why not just buy a Schiit Rag2? It's $1500 new and doesn't sound like hot garbage.

    Italy.

    Schiit-Europe seems to be out of stock for everything. I think the EU wrecks people's anuses when they import from the USA with customs / duties (percentage of item and shipping and insurance cost) and then VAT.

    TBH, a Vidar would also fit the requirements. Slightly warm, strong bass, grips woofers, not the end-all be-all in microdetail or microdynamics, but not everyone can go for the crazy idiot Dartzeel.

    (warning slightly ot).


    Paying the VAT is not too bad when you are dealing with Schiit prices.

    You don't need it anyway, but you might want it.


    Governments tax the s*** out of people everywhere. If you think about all of the taxes that you pay to keep the thing running.

    While professional workers and scientists etc are working hard to produce the cake, politician get the most attention and work daily how to cut the cake. Just keep it stable, do not f*** up is the best you can do as a political professional. Support good ideas and make way.

    Lean, efficient and objective state apparatus should be the goal.. To make room for companies that actually produce and add value.
