RE: Help With Amplifier Selection

AMEN. Mixing and matching also works, but it takes patience and mistakes can be costly. My system(s) combine AN and Wavelength front ends, Blue Circle (BC) and DeHavilland preamps, AN, Fi, Ultra-Fi and Donald North Audio amps, and Tonian Labs and Stirling Audio speakers + assorted cabling from BC, AN, and Crimson. I forgot to mention BC power filters. In general, I'm pretty happy.

I also have found that AN preamps just don't work with my non-AN amps and that with AN you have to be careful about low- vs. high-gain amps. In relation to the gain in your preamp (if its non-AN).
