    I use two Schiit Vidars for my 1C’s. I emailed customer service to ask if I could make them common ground by running a wire from one to the other. I got back a response from Jason saying it was a bad idea. “Like BOOM! “ That’s how he put it. So I got a 625 VA A-G transformer and is connected the two speakers through it.

    Correct. Running stereo amps in mono can not be made common ground. Using a dreadnought is the only way that will work going into SDA's
    Gustard X26 Pro DAC
    Belles 21A Pre modded with Mundorf Supreme caps
    B&K M200 Sonata monoblocks refreshed and upgraded
    Polk SDA 1C's modded / 1000Va Dreadnaught
    Wireworld Silver Eclipse IC's and speaker cables
    Harman Kardon T65C w/Grado Gold. (Don't laugh. It sounds great!)

    You should get the tried and true Avel model Y236906 800 VA transformer.
