Hmmmm,


What I meant to ask you is this, "Do you love the SQ on the 1070?" How do you like to highs, lows, mids, image ability, etc?

Liz

I compared my 1070's 2 channel performance with my highly regarded NAD C370 integrated amp performance and it was a too close to call scenario. I now use my 1070's pre-outs and use the NAD as a power amp. I think the NAD had a little edge but for my setup the 1070 was close enough.

I upgraded to the 1070 recently from my 8 year old JVC and OMG, what a difference! EVERYTHING is just so much better. I thought I had decent 5.1 sound before, but once I hooked up the 1070 I heard what I was really missing. A good test DVD I recently enjoyed was the animated movie CARS. Play the opening 3 minutes of this movie and you will be blown away. Having played it a day earlier with my previous set-up and the next with the 1070, there was no comparison. There was so much more that came to life, so many details that came out of all my speakers that I never heard before. Everyone I have had over recently to hear the new set-up has been blown away. I purchased mine as a "B" stock and I don't think you can go wrong with it.

Listening to a new cd by ''The Young Gods''this morning...
I believe the 1070 really shines playing tunes in plain old stereo...
oh Joy! oh sweet bliss ! laugh

HI Laventura. I am enjoying reding your posts about the 1070. I have the audiophile bug so I am hoping the 107o will do the job ad I will use audiophile speakers and a top flight DVD player that will be modified to increase output.

Can the 1070 suffice?

Hi Liz,
You will ultimately answer that one yourself...

but let me offer you this...
the only other system I'm granted to hear on a regular basis...
is an Anthem AVM30 + PVA-7 Mirage M-5si + M-595 for surrounds...Rega Appollo cd player and Cambridge DVD...
This system is also in a much bigger room than mine...
The sound for two channel audio is simply delicious... can play incredibly loud...
and comparing my 1070 and more modest speakers with it...
I feel no envy... laugh
The 1070 brought my little 290's and sub back to life...
with the bundle saved...
cd's have been finding their way here every week...
and don't get me wrong...
the 1070...depending on your speakers and room...can play very loud...
you can come and ask my neighbours... wink

I would love to ask your neighbors all the way up in the Great North.

I plan on trying the 1070 with using a powered sub either Outlaw or HSU at a later date.

Can I ask you if you get a sound stage, depth, see through transparency assuming you use good recordings?

How about air around the instruments?

Liz

humm...just gotta love that downfiring LFM1 plus...the shakes down to 18 Hz that rumble your cheeks...

a powered sub will definitely give the 1070 more headroom...

some of my listening choices would not all fit the bill of a quality recording...
My music can be quite eclectic...
rock and garage sound like they should...
especially the vinyl stuff...
but some of my more demanding recordings...
Stereolab...Morcheeba(amazing female vocals)...
the richness...the warmth...WOW!
I feel wrapped in sound...
Classical...is good...Piano too...
Chopin or Satie...just sounds Like I got them in my living room playing a tune or two.... smile
