    Default Cayin 860: upgrade or side move?

    Do you guys think the Cayin 860 will be an upgrade or side move for me. I'm currently using the Unison Research S6 integrated amp to power the Usher MD 2.

    The Cayin would only be a lateral move or worse. The Unison stuff is pretty good if your talking about sound quality. Numbers will never tell anyone how it sounds.
