I'm surprised no one mentioned a good tube amp. Those come from the mid 60's when SS was a rare thing and the few SS amps around had output coupling caps. If you can find one try something like a pair of Dyna MK III's or Mk IV's or a Stereo 70. The Eico ST70 ought to do very well. Failing that try a 1/2 ohm resistor in series with your SS amp and see if you like that. The resistor simulates the source impedance of a 60's tube amp and gives a pretty similar interaction with the speaker. Several owners of AR 3a's tried that with some success and it works with the AR4x and KLH 17.
Jerry, I've been using .5 ohm resistors with just about all my AR's since I first read your posts here.:D
