I've been thinking about upgrading my equipment lately and was initially thinking about a P5/A21 combo, then I got checking out tubes and thought maybe this is worth a shot. Going with the go big or go home approach here. This will be driving CRS+, 1C's, and Monitor 10b's swapping in rotation.

    Wrong amp for those speakers.

    "A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a t-u-r-d by the clean end."


  • That's all I needed to know, thanks.

    Too low of power. Go big or go home?

    As a shameless act, here is another tube amp I am selling:

    It's a good sounding amp that should pair well with the selections.

    That's a little too big for me. I'd rather put the money in my WRX.

    This is more in my ballpark, definitely pretty far on the right of the scale though.

    This was part of the same link you provided. I'd think this would be somewhat better.

    It is better. I swear that amp used to be about half that price, no? That seems like a lot of $$$ for a Yaqin.

    Yeah, I seen that too. IDK maybe I will just stick with SS and not take the tube route. Or save a bunch of money and leave well enough alone. I hate being indecisive

    You'll find a SS amp and a Tubed pre amp will cover your bases and many more so you won't have to worry about powering speakers and still get that tube flavor in your sound.

    A Sunfire amp with dual outputs gives you the option to bi amp your speakers giving you a SS boost on the low end and a more tube flavor on the high end. Check out a pass labs x1 as a pre. Love this combo on my 2.3 tl's
