In Reply to: RE: Here are my 45 Monoblocks ...................... posted by Wojciech on June 07, 2022 at 20:25:03
Correction: --- I use 115db Horns. And All Oris Horns are Bi-Amped. And I believe Edgarhorns and Avantgarde Horn Systems are Bi-Amped as well.
Hardly, not comparable as you say. SET implementations are 'made' for Horn Systems IMO.
I agree that SET'S are made for horn systems and I have no doubt that your 45 monos sound wonderful in your implementation. I only remarked ( clumsily admittedly) that somebody with Heresy like boxes sporting 12" or 15" with 93-96 dB efficiency will have very different results with such amplifier even in a small room. I'd rather recommend move into opposite direction, 300B PSE or big bottles or different set of speakers and bi- amplification
I don't disagree with that.... Although I have seen people with speakers in that sensitivity range use Korneff Amplifers in a small room and are completely satisfied with it. So, there are no Hard and Fast rules when it comes to this topic.... Individual Volume Tastes, Room Size etc. etc.
Inmate 'The Killer Piglet' comes to mind.... Korneff 45 Amps and Omega SAM speakers (94.5db)
Inmate The Killer Piglet System
I own Rehdeko RK-125-5s FR speakers. Kindy of chunky bastards with flat 8 Ohm impedance and 96 dB. Not much bass from 10" driver either and my 45 monos can't do it in 100 Sqft bedroom . 300B on the other hand can and very nicely so.
OT, but is the 6SN7 driver stage in your Corneff monos using both halves of the triode in parallel or just a single triode ?
Not sure, but here is the Schematic from a Magazine Article that Jeff Korneff used to build his 45 amplifier. In his e-mail to me last year, he attached this article.
