    Welcome Greg! I love the 400s too, they will always have a place in my heart because they sound so pure but for now I am running a Clair 700 WOPL1000 and enjoy the extra power available

    Always learning!
    Both are impressive units. Both will be limited by weaknesses in your system (pre, speakers) and you will find yourself searching for the sound you want to hear.

    My search started with my B&W's needing more power (200wpc recommended minimum) bringing me to a stock 400 (which sang like a bird to me) but then I came here......nothing left of my original system of 3years ago now.

    Lee did a fantastic job on a 400 (Rev E) for me (he trashed my original 400 when I brought it out to him). I guess that if and when I get fatigued listening to the 400 I would replace with a 700 (only because...?). There is no need at this point.

    Roxanne is a very nice unit, would love to have her...just not at this time.

    I'm sure Lee has foundation cracks starting in his basement due to his 700 and the K's but man, does it sound nice - it literally was a sonic and physical experience.

    HA! Atlanta of all places!

    I used to live in Cumming, lived there for almost 11 years!

    I traded tropical storms for traffic jams, was in South Florida for 20 years, Atlanta now for 6 years.

    Mark,

    thanks for your youtube videos on your 400 build, went through them all and pretty sure I will reference them a few times on my build.......SKINNY BOY!!!

    The one we had last October was awful. In my immediate area lawns were flooded, but not much else- and the water stayed well into November.

    I do YouTube for fun. Don't get many views and nothing has gone viral, it's just something fun to do. Glad to hear that someone's getting some use from them!
    Umm... that's skinny boy with electrophobia...

    Eventually I want to do a 700, but in the meantime I really love the outcome and sound from the 400. This is the stereo that I wanted for a looooong time.

    I'm the Red Knight, by grant of the Black
    Greetings, Greg, from ye Red Knight!


    I'm one of the unwashed here, not owning a Phase Linear amp, though I used to have a 2000 pre. I'm in a slow drift toward Yamaha amplification, owning two amps and one receiver. For some reason or other, they come cheap, used. Unlike some of our resident crazies, I don't melt voicecoils, having only 130 wpc total in a biamp setup.
