As an example of my past experience in my quest for excellent sound I can recall that when I listened to the output from a HK 430 receiver (25 watts/channel), I came to the conclusion that my Kenwood KA-8100(75 watts/channel) amplifier was definitely inferior. The new sound was more fluid, more detailed and highly more dynamic. This convinced me to replace my KA-8100 amplifier but I opted for a more powerful model – the HK 505 amplifier. That decision resulted in my rediscovery of all my favorite vinyls. Examples of these improvements were more details and a lot more power in the sound. These added features resulted in a desire to further the power output and thus I bought a Crown DC 300 A (used). This combined with the HK 505 preamplifier simply resulted with the best 60 watts/channel of his category which for 1979 was the best combination to experience the best sound.
