I recently purchased a Denon D7000 and I am satisfied how it sounds with my Yulong D100 (Mrk. I). Last week I borrowed a Lake People G100 from the head-fi member Anda and it lifted the level of the music. I am not saying that the difference was like night and day, but there was more clarity in the music and I found it easier to identify the different instruments. The biggest difference was the sub-bass that was much more controlled with the G100. The bass with the D7000/Yulong combo can be a bit blurry, although it still sounds fine.
The only issue with the G100 was occasionally sibilance but this might be caused by the combination Lake People G100, Yulong D100 and the source material. I did not really notice sibilance the first three or four days so the problem was not serious.
Within two or three months I will have the opportunity to try the Violectric V200 on a loan tour. I am sure it will be an even bigger upgrade.
The cost of an amp is a serious consideration for me, so the amp that I might end up buying is the Yulong A100 based on the review of it by Project86. I have listened to several things that he has reviewed, and I mostly agree with his assessments. Project86 wrote in his review: That combo(Yulong D100 and Yulong A100) plus a used Denon D7000 …… make a good argument for ending the cycle of side-grades and upgrades and just enjoying the music, all at a relatively bargain price. I would like to listen to A100 before ordering it, but that will probably not be possible in Denmark.
Some good information there, I am curious about the difference from D100 to D100+A100.
The D7000 can be a little sibilant for me, so I think thats expected. The G100 was not something I heard of before, but I came across it a few times last week. So on the list it goes.
WA6SE is OTC which means its in grey territory but Sonically the sound signatures are a perfect match from the few trustworthy peoples opinions I have read.
The WA6 on the other hand... I need more info.
