There are nice mono or stereo blocs for sure.
But i will come back to integrated amps.

on forums with studio 100: CAMBRIDGE AUDIO 840A V2
Naim Nait 5i
nad.

Is it a good alternative with axiom speackers under 1000$ price if i'm looking for an integrated ?

You can also see in this big picture http://www.outlawaudio.com/images/2200-rear-huge.jpg that the M-2200 can run on 230v@50Hz. So all you need is a power cable, and a flip of a switch, no actual voltage converter. Oh, looks like you need to replace the fuse too.

Oh thanks for digging info smile

I just look at the pic is it a red switch with voltage function ?

I download the pdf:

115v/60HZ
230v/50hz
600w

t5al 250v
for 115v

T2.5al 250v for 230v

I'm almost sure i can use it in france without any risk of fire^^

Just be cautionous about the 115v/230v switch lol

Humm i'm suspicious about which fuse it use.

I'm really interestead by those two monobloc but again i don't have place to put two mono bloc and a preamp frown

Just my opinion, but I would never get an emo amp after the hell I went thru with my M80's v2 and an RPA-2 emo amp. No shut downs, just 2 complete failures. 2 new amps & both right channels blew.

I then got Odyssey Khartago mono-blocks and had no issues at insane SPL's. I now have a Marsh a400s amplifier designed by Richard Marsh and no issues at all. Very nice amp.

Even if I changed to 8 ohm speakers down the road, I just can't get past the parts I suspect they use to offer such low prices. You get what pay for.

Thank you, got lucky on audiogon and snagged it for dirt cheap.
The transformer in this thing is HUGE smile
I've pushed the Marsh very hard for awhile and it never even got the faintest bit warm...

I agree you get what you pay for but we all have to live within our means. Every fledgling company has to start somewhere and make their line in the sand.A company slowly learns as it grows and if it doesnt learn it doesnt survive. Im not an emo fanboy but i think their amps are good value. Everything manmade is susceptible to failure. Just cause ford made the pinto doesnt mean the GT40 is a piece of crap.

It uses a 5 Amp fuse when running 115 volt, and a 2.5 Amp fuse at 230 volt. The 250 volt mentioned is the rating of the fuse (basically how many volts it's safe up to).

So it'd be a T2.5AL 250v fuse for you.

Adelin, you have it right, and if these salesmen are telling you that all these quality amplifiers(including your 675)"sound different", they're either uninformed or lying. Amplifiers should only add more voltage from their power supply section to make the weak incoming voltage strong enough to drive speakers at a comfortably loud level. If they do this with audibly flat frequency response and inaudibly low noise and distortion, they've done all that's possible for a amplifier to do, regardless of the specific details of technology that were employed. Any amplifier that adds a "sound" is either incompetently designed or defective.

Your comment about your 675 isn't clear. If it's fine even when running the speakers full-range without bass management, it'd be even easier if a sub was taking part of the low-bass burden off. So, it would seem that you're okay and not just "for a while", and have no need to spend money on a separate amplifier.
