Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

RE: Second guessing my used tube amp purchase...

On paper.... not a perfect match. For a tube amp like the 20 watt Raven, you'd ideally want a speaker with a friendlier impedance curve.....something that is rated at 8 ohms and stays above 4 ohms. 89 db in efficiency is certainly doable if the impedance were a bit friendlier. It's worth a try, but I think you'll be somewhat limited to simpler music at moderate levels. FWIW, a friend recently mentioned how much he's enjoying his Wharfedale Denton's with a tube amp in the same power range as the Raven. So basically, you might not get a true picture of the Raven amp's potential with the more complex load presented by the 240. As always, YMMV.
