Advance Acoustic MCD 403/MAP 305DA II review

 

This combo's unusual appearance disguises its performance level

Excellent build quality ; Solid bass ; Energetic presentation

Lacks detail and tonality ; Not the most precise of systems

Here's a question. What does Naim's Supernait (£2,350) and Musical Fidelity's A1008 (£2,999) have in common, apart from four-figure price tags? Answer: on-board D/A conversion. But what if £2-3k for an amp is simply too much?

Great value, Revealing and exciting sound quality in the right company

Advance Acoustic has thrown down the gauntlet to mid-range amplifier makers in no uncertain fashion

The MAP305 II seems great value ? up until the point you start listening

A real eyeful for the money; loud; distinctive styling

A large shortfall of sonic talent

And it is a lot of amp. It weighs over 15kg and is specified as delivering 100 watts into eight ohms and twice that into four. This combined with casework that puts the various internal components into separate compartments and digital inputs alongside...

A lot of well built amplifier for the money, nice remote, nicer level meters and a wealth of inputs make it hard to beat

Sound is a little more forward and edgy than some and lacks the solidity in the bass that the power rating would suggest
