Is the Accuphase e-560 an instrumentation amplifier?

The E-560 is Class A integrated amplifier from Japan and rated at a conservative 30 watts per channel into 8 ohms, 60 into 4 and 120 into 2 and 150 watts into 1 ohm. Accuphase amplifiers are notorious for being able to handle tough 1 ohm loads.

Is the Yamaha e-560 the best integrated amplifier?

In fact the E-560 is the best integrated amplifier I have ever heard, regardless the price tag. Finesse, clarity, extremely good separation of voice and instruments, very powerful, with incredible reserves of power. For many years I was exciting about class A amplifiers.

What is the difference between E-550 and e-560?

IMO, the main difference between E-560 and E-550 is the speed, control of the bass, and more neutral sound. For example I was very impressed for the speed of the E-450. In the same way I was more years ago impressed about E-550 delicacy, musicality and tube-alike sound. Now, let’s imaginary put E-550 and E-560 in a blender and that’s E-560 !

What do you think about the c-2410 from Accuphase?

You have to listen to it. The C-2410 preamplifier from Accuphase is a big, full size device. It is as big as the integrated amplifier E-213, its weight is also nearly the same, what tells much about the construction of the preamplifier.

What is Accuphase and how does it work?

Accuphase is different – it enjoys the even, slightly softens the attack, but not in an easy way, because there is no lack of precision, but the whole transmission is a bit softer, and even more vivid. It was similar with the re-edition of the disc The Köln Concert Keith Jarrett (ECM [Japan], UCCE-9011, gold-CD), that is softer than the original.
