What I can add is regarding the tubes. This amp is so good that the cheap stock tubes that come with it still make this amp sound good. If you want to change tubes, you will be looking for 5670, 2C51 or 396A. The GE are the least expensive ($5-10 ea) and I have heard they sound good. There is a GE 5 star ($20-30 ea.) that is supposed to be better and Raytheon tubes ($10-25 ea), square and windmill getters with the windmill being the better of the two. The best tube, from my reading, is the Bendix but they are expensive and hard to find and can run $75-100 ea. The next best tube is the one I got. I have the Western Electric 396A. They can run $50 ea. but I won an auction for a pair at $30. WOW, what a difference! This amp is scary good. I'm sure there are better tube amps out there but I'm going to guess that you would have to spend thousands to impove on this one. The new tubes made the music come alive! I'm very picky about my sound and I have never heard anything like it. My tube amp search is over. I have a high end Hitachi solid state amp and this is so much better! It's also dead quiet! My only complaint is that I would like a headphone jack on the front. There is an out on the back of the amp you can use for a sub or headphones, but you have to undo the speaker wire from the post to use it with headphones. I have some monster U connectors on my speaker wire that makes this easier. It is a little inconvenient but not a deal killer.
Buy this amp, roll the tubes and you won't be dissapointed!
(1) It sounds great, and even if it cost 5x its current price it would be a winner sound quality wise - provided you value musicality and some warmth in the delivery, and provided your speakers and volume level preferences match the power rating of the A6000.
(2) It is a price-value *steal*. Even if you have a far more expensive system, it's fun to get one just to play around.
My primary system consists of a Benchmark DAC2 HGC (still to be reviewed) that gets FLACs and some MP3s stored on my computer. The Benchmark then feeds into 2 amplifiers I rotate, an Accuphase E-306v as well as Creek Destiny Power Amp. Why do I rotate them? Because the Accuphase -my keeper for life- gets serviced and upgraded every once in a while. So I have had other amps over the years. The speakers used to be BW 804s, but I have them in storage because they were too big for my new place, thus I recently acquired the KEF LS50 (which utterly blow my mind). Cabling is good, but never esoteric, I have never spent more than $500 on a cable, and typically buy cables in the $100-200 range from Kimber or Analysis Plus, perhaps spent more on the speaker cables though. The reason for all of this is I love listening to classical and jazz music (which I store as FLACs) with some popular contemporary hits thrown in of course (and MP3s are fine for those, most popular music is poorly recorded anyhow). Long preamble - this is to say: I take my music listening seriously.
The biggest compliment I can pay the Qinpu A6000 is... a friend of mine was home-bound because he broke 2 legs badly in a motorcycle accident.Read more ›
