RE: Harsh vocals in Magnepan 3.7i

I hate to say this, and it may be irrelevant since we are talking about totally different components here, but I tried Parasound's A-21 power amp in my system and found it somewhat brittle and edgy in the high end. It was not satisfactory at all.

I purchased a used Pass Labs X-250.5 from Reno HiFi and am very satisfied with it. It is very clean-sounding and the high end is very smooth and musical.

I would urge yyou to try one of these amps if possible. Reno offers a 30-day trial period--plenty of time to assess the component without risk.

Good luck. I am very sensitive to rough-sounding high-ends. I feel for you.
