AU-555A is about five years older than AU-3900. AU-3900; 22W+22W, AU-555A; 33W+33W.
I never had a chance to compare the sound, but five years might make a difference in sound quality.
: Thanks for your comment. I've decided to go with a vintage unit. Would you know how the AU-555A is in comparison to the AU-3900 ?
: : Hi,
: : Something like AU-3900 has very tube like strong mid to low range sound compared with today's so-so amps. However, today's amp has clearer sound in high frequency range compared with vintage equipment. By overall comparison, I think vintage amps have better sound.
: : : What should I consider when I make such a decision. Is there something in these vintage models that cannot be found in a modern integrated amp ? You views will be much appreciated
