Like that both have a "HT Direct" (HT bypass) input so they can integrate into my HT system. My goal is a really fine two channel sound that lives ontop of my 5.1 HT setup.
Will be auditioning both over next few days. Most likely will pair with Thiel 1.6's
I listen to rock/pop, have a small room, and prefer a warm sound, and desire good imaging and soundstage. Thoughts/
Hi, I'm also looking for a new integrated and listened to some amplifiers and have the same goal as you. I really liked Unison Unico and MF A5. I have to audition these 2 again because the price tag of the A5 is almost double of the Unico. The HT direct is really nice but if the sound isn't that much better it's not worth the 1400$ extra. What's your opinion on the A5. BTW I have JMLab Cobalt 815.
I really love the Unison Unico its great,but the A5 is one of the best amps i've heard regardless of price and for that matter the Unico is to,but the A5 is amazing.I have the X-150 and it really is great for the money right on par with the Unico,but I bought it before the A5 came out.2 more contenders to check out the Moon I3,and Odyssey Tempast preamp and Stratos amp is a amazing value.www.odysseyaudio.com
Replacing ol' HK6600 (90w,ch) and was attracted to NAD (perhaps c352 80w,ch). I am interested in options, I do love the HK, but she's a little tired. I am using B&W 602's, but have 603's on another system I can change over to suit the amp I choose. The old Yamaha cdx-530 is starting to play up too, so I have to replace that too some time soon. (thanks, bit of a learner really).
Tawaun, thanks for your reply! Andy, I auditioned the Nad C352, mainly as reference because I'm using NAD T760 as surround. It's a good amp, but not in the same league as the UNICO and A5 (which should be normal because of the much higher prices)
