I've been running the 5180 for about 2 weeks. I notice a substantial improvement in the sound quality vs the amp in my Onkyo RZ920 much more headroom. I have it set up on top of my rack do to running on the warm side. If you are looking to place it inside a cabinet I would add additional cooling.The 5180 is built like a tank at this price point it's awesome!!
A real noticable enhancement to my home Theater. Summithifi-Us comes thru with a great product combined with awesome customer service. Thank you so much
I just order yesterday and Amir called me and gave me the shipping date and his personal phone number. I can see already that there's going to be excellent customer service. I have Marantz av7706 Monolith 5x200 and just ordered the 7 channels I need. Thank you for the call AMIR.
I’ve been wanting to upgrade my home theater setup for years and finally got the okay from my wife so I proceeded to purpose and urgency. After looking at various options, I went with Marantz AV7705 pre-pro and Nuprime-X MCX-2 (fronts), MCX-3 (center and surrounds) and MCX-4 (4 ATMOS heights).
Aamir was great to work with. Aamir had the gear shipped and I received them in just 2 days. I had about 3 weeks to enjoy and I love my setup. Everything sounds louder yet clearer. I can hear the dialogues better. Surrounds and heights have more authority, directionality, providing more immersive movie experience.
I also find myself listening to music more as well. I am not an audiophile so I can’t describe the music with all of their jargons. All I can say is that the vocals are clearer. I can hear more of the instruments. And I am getting a bigger sound stage. It sounds better as I turn up the volume so I’ve been listening at higher volumes than I ever did before. I find myself tapping my feet to music a lot and I guess that is what it’s all about.
First, let me join the crowd by saying that Amir, the representative, was true to his word, even though it was costly for him, i.e., he delivered the product as promised, even though it had to be shipped overseas. And, it came very quickly, considering how far it had to travel - within a week. Amir answered all of my questions and is willing to stand behind his product.
Regarding the Amplifier: I examined many amplifiers out there, before I made the decision to purchase the AD-5180. I have only had the amplifier for about two weeks now and I am very please, so far. It really can't be beat. It has the same, or greater, specifications; high quality; and sold build of much higher priced amplifiers - very clean. The meter alone puts this unit above the myriad of amplifiers out there that are mere, non-interesting, boxes. And the meter serves a function: to indicate signal strength and show how much amplitude is going to its designated speakers. I would prefer the meter broke down the signal from each channel but, it is better than most other brands - no meters at all.
The sound quality can't be beat either. I have McIntosh amps on board also, as well as, McIntosh speakers and this AD-5180 delivers its signal equally well.
Final thought: I saw a review, on YouTube, that indicated that there was some low level hum, from the unit, when it was not sounding anything. I don't find that to be true. My speakers do not produce any hum from this unit. It is dead silent when not sounding anything.
I am very pleased with my decision to purchase the AD-5180. It is a tremendous value. I'm sure you will feel the same way, if they don't raise the price as it becomes more popular.
p.s. I'm not being paid to write this. :)
I bought this amp to use a few months down the road when i build my speakers. But i was anxious to hear it so i brought it to my sons house and hooked it up to his pre amp.i was astonished at its beauty, and it lacks nothing in the sound department. It was a pleasure to listening to. And it dont stop there it is very well built.i already plan on getting a second one before my speakers are even done.very impressed with this amp.
Amp is great!! Noticing more detail in movies! Priced right too.... definitely a well built amp!!
(Make sure u get a adapter for the power chord.. I cut the factory one and put on a aftermarket one for the us!!)
Customer service is by far some of the best I’ve had from a retailer. Amp shipped direct to my door from China..
Amir took the time and actually called me and went over any questions I had!!!!!
Highly recommend looking into this amp and shop!
Awesome Amp! This replaced my Xpa 2 gen 3 and I heard no difference in audio quality. For the price of an Xpa 3 you get the quality of an Xpa 7!
I've had this amp for abut 8 months at time of review. The Tone winner 5300 is a true gem for the money. Instead of trying to explain to everyone what this amp sounds like I thought I'd explain what this amp is truly capable of. Some say, a truly great sounding system is a sum of all it's parts. And only when all of the parts are of the same high caliber and quality will you ever know what your system sounds like. It's been explained to me as this "when you listen to a hi fi system, it sounds one of two ways. This first way is you feeling like your listening to a recording. The second is what what most every audiophile tries to achieve. Instead of listening to a recording of any given song, you're trying to reproduce the music that was created on that recording within your room. It creates an experience of perfecly mixed live music. That is what hi fi is all about. Once you obtain that, your outlook toward music will be forever be completely new.
The following are things that someone who's interested in achieving a higher standard of listening experience will find interesting. I use this amp as my sole amplifier. It's used for 2channel and surround sound playback.
This is a fully resounding amplifier. ( further information on youtube)
You willl easily achieve holographic imaging (what many consider highest goal) if you have a halfway decent set of speakers. I Have svs prime
pinnacle towers. You can easily achieve this by following the set up guidelines found at cardasdotcom.
If you upgrade your power cord you willl hear a small difference in reduction of floor noise and you will gain clarity.
If you upgrade your rca interconnects you will hear a massive difference in reduction of floor nois and gain clarity that you didn't know was possible.
If you plug this amp into a power conditioner/ regenerator you will notice a massive difference in imaging. So much so that this was what brought the live music experience into my living room.
If you decide to upgrade your speaker cable to something with low inductance and great sheilding, you can expect to hear your soundstage grow by
leaps and bounds. You can expect to obtain a more immersive experience. Your speakers will perform for efficiently.
I would definatley recommend this amp for what ever you needs might be. It works well as an inexpensive, super powerful amp in a simple system. Or can fit right in to your super slick hifi rack and make it apart of an incredible resounding and immersive audio system. Either way, this amp holds your dance ticket at the party.
Excellent service the 5180 is a real nice addition to my home system.
Great product and even better customer service. Amir is dedicated to his customers his loyalty to his customers is second to none. I look forward to continue to purchase my av needs with him.
I was a bit sceptical on this but Amir assured me I was making the correct decision. I got my forklift out and moved it to my theater room (kidding, but it is hefty) have this running off a Denon X4500 with a Infiniti RC263 center, 2 JBL Studio 590 and Studio 530 for front heights and just WOW! It woke these speakers up something fierce, Midbass just hits me in the chest now! 100% clear and clean with lots of power on tap. It is also a vey nice looking amp and you can tell it is well made.
I tried an Emotiva Basx A300 and even tried the Crown XLS series, They both kinda sounded the same, Muddy and unclear, The Tone Winner is crystal clear, tight and clean. 100% would buy it again!
What a wonderful amplifier with true wattage. Amp is still breaking in but I am amazed. Amir is great, I was a bit scaptical when we spoke about this, but he made a believer in me. Highly recommended, and I maybe getting the 3 channel soon to round out my system..
I'm pleased with tonewinner AD5300 and customer is outstanding. I live us and it was shipped from china.Item arrived on time in exchange condition. Summthifi followed shipment from me from China so didn't have to do any work. 👍
Great product, brought my speakers to life. Easy to setup, but best of all not expensive.
