RE: Foil Project for IIIa's

Yes, Since you digitize your analog, it is an all digital system.

The Classe DR15 should have no problem with the tweeter. I don't know the Cairn and it is not spec'd for 2 ohms, so I would ask first. The Monarchy SE100 are very nice for their price point, and should work fine. I would contact CC Poon at Monarchy to ask if it is ok into 2 ohms, or you should use a resistor to raise the load it sees to 4 ohms. In any case, the high class A bias means that you will remain in class A for the entire signal likely to reach the tweeter. The Classe and the Cairn will not be operating in class A that far up in power if you need to put in a resistor, (you don't with the DR15, you may with the Cairn).

The old Mac receiver is not workable without a resistor and is not a great value unless you need to fix it and are capable of doing it cheaply (DIY fix). I don't think these SS receivers are that great.
