Bottom Line:   
I decide to downgrade my system and crisis was not the reason.
I thought that 24000euro(real prices) 15000euro purchase is a BIG ammount to stay at home.
So first I sell my turntable.
12000EURO.Replaced by a Lenco L75.1/100 of the price 101% of the sound quality!!!Modified ofcource.
Then amplifier and preamplifier:
9000EURO.
PEPLACED BY UNISON RESEARCH SR1.(750)EURO
1/15 OF THE PRICE 200% OF THE SOUND QUALITY.
SPEAKERS STAY FOR THE MOMMENT.
THIS LITTLE AMP IS SOMETHING ELSE!!!
Soundstage mid's high's and low frequencies its hard to explain how good they are.
I thought to sell and make a simble system for a while and go again for the big money system after a while but I will stay here for a long time.
And as phono stage I use one from a PioneerA400 throu rec out!!!!!
Imagine a good one how it will sound from this combo.
My previous combos just to see:
PRE with phono:
Audible Illusion m3 John Curl gold
McIntosh 2300
Doge8
PRE AND PHONO STAGES
Sunilda :DISAPOINT
Counterpoint SA-9: THE BEST EVER
Manley Steelhead:OVERATED
Jasmine:VERY GOOD
PASS ALEPH L
EAR 834:NEEDS MODS TO PLAY
POWER AMPLIFIERS:
Pass Aleph 5
McCormack DNA1
McIntosh MC402
Coda System 100:among the best
Krell 250
BAT VK60

TURNTABLES:
Michell Gyro
VPI TNT HRX

For the first time after 20 years I really don't care to stay at the gold point.
I only listen to music.
What else to look for?
A!

Bottom Line:   
This is an incredible integrated. The style is beautiful but even better is the sound. Clean clear and powerful with the ability to switch preamp tubes to tailor your sound to your preference. I use Brimar tubes for a full warm tube sound. Sounds like 150w tube amps driving my speakers (87db/w/m). Soundstage and images are rock solid and oh so precise. The SR1 is able to reveal every detail and nuance of the recording. And effortlessly, musically, and hypnotically, Sounds great on a variety of music too, from AC/DC to Miles Davis, Tchaikovsky to Neil Young. THIS BABY DOES IT ALL!

Bottom Line:   
I have bought this amplifier from a local hifi shop . This is very well built amplifier with wood and metal . and is nice looking . Speaker terminals and interconnect terminals are gold . The sound is very warm . There is a deep and detailed bass . The mids and vocals are near perfect . High's are not exaggerated but treble is very clear . I recommend this amplifier with a good quality speaker
