    Default Adcom GFA-7805

    I just wondered whether anyone has had an opportunity to check one out. There is a brand new one for sale locally. I have read where others in the forum have owned Adcom amps.

    I am not familiar with that particular model so I can't give an honest opinion.

    I can tell you that I love my Adcom GFA-7500 (150wx5) amp.

    It is a well built,heavy,powerfull, great sounding amp.

    And was made in the U.S.A.:D

    Here the link for Stereophile review

    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    Thanks H9... My link didn't quite start at the beginning.

    That was an interesting review, BTW. The whole thing with the cables causing a shutdown was a first-heard for me. I would have been baffled.
