Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: Help With Amplifier Selection

Thanks for the advice Frihed89, I am aware that the Virgo's are a tough load-I guess it's time to make a change at the speaker. So odd, because my ears have never let me think or feel the Virgo's were straining or a bad electrical match with my 40W 6C33C amps. Perhaps the gain/drive of my active tube preamp is masking that a little? Perhaps the current capability of the Russian Output tubes?

I have heard the AN-E's at a show a few years ago-and loved them. They were hooked up to an 8 watt 300B AN Amp that produced an extremely dynamic sound. Problem there-is I don't have two full front corners to put them in. I prefer a more "free space" arrangement. The front plane of the Virgo's are at least 7-8 feet from the front wall and 5-6 from sidewalls.
On a sinking ship, women and rhythm section first. -Jaco Pastorius
