I think I would have to clean my pants if I heard arcing & flashing when I was messing around with connections on the A1400.

Jay, when I got my RPA-1, I first hooked it up to my Monitor 9's and I immediately noticed a difference, I can't really explain it technically because I don't know all the terminology, but it definitely did sound different than my receiver at the time (3801), it really seemed to give them a breath of fresh air and help open them up; that's the extent of my technical lingo. I would presume it would do the same thing to my M80s but I can't recall.

Its too bad the A1400 isn't available through the factory outlet.

Couldn't get my schedule to open up for any testing with Bryan(icehawk), tentative time for this weekend with mojo. No timeline other than 3-4 weeks if I'm lucky for the repair \:\(

This past weekend sucked with no real audio for games or movies. I may have to go buy a cheap avr to tide me over and then replace the old Sony upstairs, but that would defeat the bigger plan of seperates downstairs and the 3808 upstairs. I wish the usual avr's had preouts in the $200-300 dollar range and not $800 and up.

I agree mrbiggyworth, 10% off the A1400 would help(not enough for me) and from the brief few minutes I had with the A1400 running the front 3 channels while watching a movie, I think I am beyond a simple 2 channel amp, or at least just one of them ;\)

If you were closer I would take you up on it in a second. I will survive, at least I still have my M22's to listen to and I think I will hook up my wife's iPod to the A1400 for some more compressed music listening today. I think this is payback from the audio gods \:\)

Nice reporting!
Did you try to get Mojo to come and hear that?

I belive this has pre outs and is well.... relatively inexpensive.
