    I've heard enough stereo systems from hundreds of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars, such that I'm not concerned with what Amir's measurements may or may not indicate. I like the sound of the STA200 in the situation where I have used it and for this reason I can and will continue to recommend it.

    I have been doing some more digging around as I try to (indefinitely) spec. out my upcoming Hifiman / 2-channel solid-state system. Keeping with the same trend of "vintage" audio, has anyone had any experience with the early Accuphase gear? I've been eyeing the P-300 amp and C-200 pre-amp (and their later variants). Based on a lot of old forum posts I've been digging up around the web, it would seem that many users actually ended up preferring Accuphase equipment over McIntosh, Krell, etc. of that same era. As always, the research continues.

    I am selling my Mark Levinson 331 :(

    I am looking for an amp to replace it with, and have found these 3 in the price range I am looking at, all under $700.

    Looking at NuForce STA 200, Schiit Vidar and Vincent SP-331 (used but like new)

    I Have a Schiit Freya preamp, and Tekton Lore-S speakers.

    Any thoughts on which is the "best" amp. The speakers are efficient, and very detailed/revealing.

    Hey man, you’re into 3 threads now about this.

    There’s a general power amp thread that this would make the most sense in, rather than a separate thread.

    Edit: Was moved to the thread referenced.
