RE: Considering A Change In Electronics? Any Recommendations?

Posted by Rod M on May 3, 2022 at 21:01:25:

Are you up in the Tri-Cities? I could be thinking of someone else.

SS works really well with Hi-Eff speakers, just don't break your ear drums.

Pass seems like something I'd love to try. But for my ~96db Altecs, McIntosh MC-30s were perfect, current control for the woofer and still having a sweet midrange. I used SETs for a long time and I don't see any of them working for you.

It seems to me that you'll need 30-40 watts. SS isn't a bad thing.
