I've owned the Meitner Melior 100 stereo power amp for about 10 years, but the amp itself was used, and could be in the 12-15 year range.
I am obviously concerned about the deterioration/ breakdown of the electrolytic caps used in the power supply. The design(floating power supply) makes it very difficult to change the caps on my own and the cost to have the original tech do the work would cost about what I paid for the used amp.
Anyone heard this amp?? It's so damn 'swell' at doing a lot of things right, that it's hard to beat in many ways. It walked all over a bias-pushed Nak PA-7 power amp. The Nak had a touch more perceived power and slam, but the Melior was just better for detail, warmth, space, low end resolution, and a refined sound.
I know there must be counterparts to this amp that would give me at least the basic quality that the Meitner Melior 100 possess.
Anything out there in the used or new market?? I am eager to try something new, but I have a feeling the Melior will be hard to beat, specially since I've 'known' its sound for a decade.
