Thread Name: Amplifiers?
Subject: BS: Amplifiers?
My amplifier died, and it was 30+ years old. The guy who said he could repair it is avoiding me, or sick, or something.


I need some advice. Like what is a POWER-amplifier, and what does a pre-main do. I understand what integrated means, but not as regards amplifiers, and they also talk of MM phono.
They also include Bluetooth, and since I don't have any music on my telephone, I don't expect to need it.

If anyone has had to buy a new amp lately, that was anything like the old amps that just did their job and went forever, what did you decide on? And especially it should have inputs for turntable, or phono as they now call them.    Please!
