    Accuphase C-3850 Preamplifier and P-7300 Power Amplifier
    -Soundly Engineered Design and Performance

    Below is a link to my equipment report of the Accuphase C-3850 Flagship Preamplifier and the new P-7300 Amplifier

    My conclusion is solid design and performance.

    "The Accuphase brand was originally marketed under the company name of Kensonic Laboratory, Inc. in 1972. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, the company changed its name to Accuphase Laboratory, Inc. The name Accuphase was chosen as a merging of the words accurate and phase. One of the basic ideologies of the company has been quality over quantity, from the first C-200 preamplifier and P-300 amplifier to the latest products under evaluation—the C-3850 preamplifier ($43,500) and P-7300 power amplifier ($32,000)."

        Andre, Thank you for reviewing this Accuphase gear. It was your excellent write up that helped give me the incentive to make a purchase.I wish more audio writers would take a closer look at this underappreciated brand.
