Isn't the power amp an integrated without a pre-amp? Also, bi-wiring. You might want to consider bi-amping as biwiring doesn't do anything (except when your on drugs
Missions have always had a thing for rock. I'd still love a pair of 770s if I could get some for a non-stupid price.
In tekky terms I dunno - the 8000A is integrated but can be used as a pre/control. The 8000P is power only, big black box with an on/off switch. They were bi-amped until I broke the 8000P
Biwiring - well it made me feel good at the time.
Things which have made a difference to my ears (and all this stuff is 1990s or earlier):
1 - Switching to Audiolab amp after Acoustic Research amp
2 - Switching to Micromega Stage 3 CD after Rega Planet CD playa
3 - Linn Sondek - yep
4 - Yamaha natural sound cassette deck after any other cassette deck
5 - Mission 753 after Mordaunt Short floodstanders
6 - Mission 753 v Linn Keilidh - jury still out, Both excellent - both different
Cassette decks - remember them
Funny thing is that I don't notice the lack of power from the 8000P now
