I just read a brief comparo on Audio Asylum between the Yamaha and HK that stated the Yammie was real thin sounding while the HK had a fuller and warmer sound.  In that same comparison, the reviewer stated he thought the HK 505 sounded better than the bigger and older Citation power amps (to him)Anyone else out there have any opinions to share on this?  Your opinions are important to me as I have never heard any vintage HK gear.

 

Also, how do you think the HK 505 stacks up against the Sony STR-6065?

 

I just found that post you were mentioning. Bright and thin? WOW! If my Yamaha CR 620 was any warmer, I'd be reaching for the treble control.

Still in the midst of moving in to the new home NW of Oregonian, but here's the temporary setup.

 

During the move, everything got sent out for the latest mods. MR-78 got the Modafferi mod, the Sony str-6120 has already been done (by me! :beyersmile:), and the Fisher 800c got fully redone internally by none other than our Argybargy. He did a top tier job on it to boot. The sx-1980 is still out being redone by mattsd from AK. 

I was also able to collect my parent's collection of vinyl, and they had a few real gems. :biggrin: Here's one now!

That's something I never thought I'd see checking this thread.

I want "The Porking"
post #13589 of 13590

When I first saw the "Porking Doll" reference, I had to go back and look at the pic again. I honestly didn't know what to expect, but something "inflatable" came to mind. :D
