    Can we talk new amps here?

    This is my new beauty. WOOHOO! :banana:

    It's a Magnat RV3.

    It's a tube pre amp and solid state main amp, the best of both worlds :)






    The heart and control center of the RV 3 lies in the audiophile tube preamplifier, which amplifies the incoming signals directly after the input stage. Fans of vinyl will be delighted by the elaborate phono section with its separate inputs for moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC) pickups.


    • 4 high-level inputs
    • Preamplifier output
    • Record Out fixed level output
    • Bi-wiring output terminal with large, insulated speaker terminals
    • Discrete high-performance amplifier with high quality power transistors from Toshiba
    • Output rating of 200 watts of sine power per channel (4 ohms)
    • Low-noise tube amplifier with 2 x 12AU7 / ECC 82 tubes
    • Preselected and burned-in (60 hours) tubes produced in Russia
    • Phono preamplifier with separate MM / MC inputs, low-noise operational amplifiers and subsonic filters
    • Input signal switching via high quality reed relays
    • Low-loss WIMA audio capacitors in the signal path

    • Output power / Nominal: 20 Hz – 20 kHz, THD < 1.0%,4 Ohm, 2 x 200 W, 8 Ohm, 2 x 150 W
    • Peak: 1 kHz, 4O: 2 x 350 W
    • Power consumption: Max 650 W
    • Mains voltage: 230 VAC / 50 Hz
    • CD/Tuner/Aux/Line/Tape: 110 dB
    • Phono MM: 90 dB
    • Phono MC: 78 dB
    • Dimensions (WxHxD) 434 x 155 x 360 mm (410 mm incl. control elements)
    • Weight 19.5 kg
    Frequency response

    • CD/Tuner/Aux/Line/Tape: 20 Hz – 20 kHz (+/-0,2 dB)
    • Phono: 20 Hz – 20 kHz (+/-0,2 dB)
    • Phono Subsonic Filter: 16 Hz, 18 dB/Oct.
    • CD/Tuner/Aux/Line/Tape: 5 Hz – 110 kHz (-3.0 dB) 20 Hz – 20 kHz (+/-0.1 dB)
    Input Sensitvity

    • CD/Tuner/Aux/Line/Tape: 600mV/100kO
    • Phono MC: 0,3mV/470O
    • Phono MM: 3mV/47kO

    Anyone remember the calculations how many watts = 1 decibel, was it 10 watts?

    And I 15th the Luxman R-117. Old thread, but Luxman is now vintage!
    The amps I have are very neutral and the Luxman receiver is warm. It wins out in my setup.
    We all hear different! I like the warm sound.

    My Pass Labs INT-30A puts out a whopping 30wpc of Class A into 8 ohms and has plenty of power for my Focal Sopra Speakers. Be careful with big WPC rated receivers and amplifiers. Big numbers doesn’t always mean big sound.
