You people are killing me. Just when FredK and JohnK and their troops convince me there is very little to be gained by adding an amp, you flying monkeys come out singing your hypnotic notes from the wicked witch about the clear improvements in almost all respects from upgrading.

I assume there is no chance Alan would step in with some double-blind test results of the A-1400(s) on M60s and M80s to "prove" the upgrade is more than just a placebo. Right Alan, no chance of that...no reason to be waiting around for a new article...right?

I auditioned some Paradigms this past weekend due to not being able to find a close enough Axiom owner. The guy I talked with was amenable and appeared knowledgeable. In the course of the hour I spent, he engaged me in conversation about my "system". I told him that I had purchased a Yamaha 663 but had some regrets due to the lack of independant crossovers. He said that they were thinking of picking up Yamaha in light of Tweeter shutting down. Their primary receiver is the Pioneer Elite series. I asked about Denon - his response is that they used to carry Denon. I asked why and he said that recent Denons were experiencing problems with their circuitry - "blowing up" to be exact. I have not seen anything about that problem but thought I would ask the Denonites here if this was just his "pitch" because they don't carry Denon?

This is the only forum I frequent, but it's never been mentioned here even once!

Sounds like a pretty bad sales-pitch line to me!

Denon is widely regarded as very dependable, sounds like he was trying to sway you in their direction.

From my experience, in this case, Denon, more than likely pulled the plug on them, not the other way around. The large mainstream companies want the retailer to have plenty of shelf space and sell a certain minimum amount to maintain a competitive wholesale discount level. This retailer probably did neither. When it comes to where I might buy, my rule of thumb has always been and always will be, if you walk in to a retailer and the sales person starts knocking equipment they don't sell, turn around and walk out.
