Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: good measuring speakers

What do you think the Ayon Crossfire is? Before that Wall Audio Opus M50 monos (parallel 6C33C) before that JJ322 (parallel 300B...still have this one) and before that NAT Symbiosis SE (hybrid SET). Also, we have run the KR Audio VA350i on it as well as some push/pull triode (Vac 30/30 and Pure Sound A30). So, mainly ONLY set has been run on them...at 98db/watt there is no need for more.

Funny that you mention mono. I have a friend who has the biggest monos from Devialet and couples them with a really nice pair of Piega planar hybrid speakers. However, it doesn't really sound very good. That is why he has now built another system around the Odeon No. 32, Lamm M1.1 hybrids, Lampizator Golden Atlantic and soon to be acquired Aries Cerat Incito preamp. Even without the Incito it whips the crap out of the Devialet/Piega combo. You put the electronics from that "big rig" onto the Piegas and it might very well sing nearly as sweetly.

Of course, would going mono with Devialets REALLY make a sonic improvement on a speaker where we are normally cruising well below 1 watt of output on the amp? Hard to understand that really. How can having even more circuitry cure the problem?
