  2. Quad, ARCAM ... difference?

    When it comes to amplifiers and the P3ESRs I was without my Quad 34/303 and I pressed an original Arcam Alpha into service.

    My favourite music since buying my 'ESRs late last year has been 'The Best of Nat King Cole'.

    Puff

    Ah, 'advertising puff'.

    Cables - all in the mind

    I use the above QED cable on my larger Harbeths and some transparent, similar looking cable on my 'ESRs.

    I truly cannot tell the difference...

  12. Good old Arcam

    I still find it incredible just how good an original Arcam Alpha amplifier is with my P3ESRs. My Quad 34/303 is out of action whilst the 34 is being repaired.

    As I sit here and listen should I surprised how good it sounds?
