RE: Which SET is next logical "step up" from 300B?

Posted by Mick Wolfe on June 9, 2022 at 10:45:07:

I agree with much of what you say, but neither the Heresy, or the Forte for that matter, will ever perform their best in a 100 sq. ft. room. They're just not designed for a tiny space. You can certainly achieve somewhat acceptable sound, but never optimal. As I've said, if the OP is resigned to his current set-up, room treatments are his best option. This especially if his goal is added refinement. Buying a lower power amp would just be an expensive move sideways that doesn't solve the core issue. This assuming of course he has a very competent 300B amp already.
