    Default Musical Fidelity A370

    Hi all,

    I would like to know your opinions regarding the Musical Fidelity A370 power amps and things like: how old they are, what the original price was etc...I searched the MF site and only the A370.2 came up. Not much information on the web. The only things that I know are, they are rated at 195 Watts Class A per channel and it is about 50 Kg.

    Thanks, Transpa.

    Musical Fidelity as I recall is a United Kingdom based company, I believe, and have been around a while, SugarMedia (ML Club - senior member) knows more and is quite knowledgeable about MF equipment and has some of their gear, like a tubed CD player etc...

    Thanks for your answer, Robin. The MF A5 is a killer amp but being an UK product it means "too-expensive-for-Down-Under." I searched for the A370 on the MF's website but could not find it, I could only find the A370.2 and I don't know if they are similar or not and more importantly, how old are the A370s?

    Thanks again, Robin.

    PS: Love your Anthem Statement P5 amplifier but don't forget to let us know when you decide to hang it up :-)

    Greetings Transparent. The A370 is about 15 years old and is selling for around $1650.00 -2350 Australian dollars. From what I've read, it still out preforms some of the more modern day amps. It is rated at 185 Watts Class A.

    As far as the archived products on the MF site, I also noticed that there are a few others that are not listed. So you might find a call to their office the best way to get add'tl info.
