E•200S or D200 MKII?
« on: 7 May 2017, 12:16 pm »
Hey guys. Big question. I am really torn between these two amps. My system consists of an Resonessence Labs Veritas DAC and Paradigm Prestige 85F speakers. The speakers are an easy 93db sensitivity, approximately 8ohm load. My room is roughly 15' × 17' with an 7' acoustic drop ceiling. Musical preferences are EDM and modern jazz. I value deep, coherent bass response, crystal clear resolution and punchy dynamics. So my question is will the D200 mk2 render an observable sound improvement over the E200S? The $ is not an issue. Please help....any advice is much appreciated. Mike.

It's a tough call as either would work well with your equipment/room.
If cost is not an issue, I'd go D-200 MKII... it has more dynamic headroom giving it a little more refinement and richness.

The CI amplifiers look nice with the other silver gear & speakers cones  :)
