Re: Virgos and tubes

I agree with Tim. It's hard to imagine the CJ Premier 12s being a let down with the Virgos. I used the 12s to power the Libras, which are rated at 86 dB (vs the more sensitive Virgos at 90 dB) and the 12s simply kicked ass. They sounded, subjectively, as powerful as the Bryston 3B and 4B amps on that same speaker - plenty of slammin,' tight bass.

I've had the Virgos in home, using the CJ MV55 stereo tube amp (45W) and the Virgos sounded beautiful, powerful and full bodied. However, the bass certainly became tighter and punchier with a Bryston 3B. Alas, I lost a little too much magic in the mids and highs. Such is hi-fi...
