Rogue Audio M-180 monoblock tube amps. These aren't mine but this is what they look like:
For a short time I was driving the R3s with a Hegel H160 integrated amplifier that I hadn't been using for a while. It is 250 wpc in to 4 ohms. I only had it connected for about 3 weeks and just...
Golden Ear BRX - $1598 per pair. Add some high quality steel (not wood!) speaker stands and that will consume, but stay in, your budget. These are rated at 90 db efficiency.
I have a pair of the Aon 3s that they still sell...
KEF R3. I love mine. I know that Naim power is known to be "robust" with their PRAT (pace, rhythm and timing....I think), but the R3's may require a bit more power. They are 2K per pair but certain Best Buy Magnolia stores carry them and you should be able to get a discount on them.
Lots of info, and lots of possibilities I'm sure.
Not the best sounding, but buy a couple (meaning how ever many you need) of Bluetooth Apt X HD receivers. The Quobuz streaming service is $15 a month although I don't know that you can have 2 people using it simultaneously (may have to go to a...
I have a Hegel H160. It's a great sounding and powerful integrated. For a little while, I had it in the basement sound room/home theater driving KEF R3s and it sounded excellent/superb.
It is now upstairs driving KEF LS 50s and doing a great job there as well. I am not familiar with your...
I won't weigh in on this "debate" other than to tell a short story.
Back in the mid-70s I heard Bose 901s and they were the best thing I had heard at the time. The owner drove them with some kind of Marantz integrated amplifier; I have no idea the model number but I'm guessing 35-50 watts per...
What's going on with the neck...of her shirt and she could brush hair at least once a week.....not to speak of her TONE (or lack thereof)???
But , yeah, seriously....that was pretty awesome.
Here's one that is just an intro/lesson of the same song that I like better:
I saw Ashley Cleveland/Kenny several years ago. At the merch table, I asked her if she had any of her music on record. She said no, so I bought a CD of course and had her sign it; I believe it said "If it ain't vinyl, it ain't real."
Welcome to the Gear Page. I have plenty of 12ax7s in guitar amps and a couple in stereo equipment, but I don't know the answer to your question.
You may get more response posting this in the Amps and Cabs section as well. I'm sure someone will have an answer for you. Good luck!
Check out Porter McLister. Me and the missus saw him there with Don and Joe Fick (bass). I may have put a couple more videos up, so just search for him here and on YT.
Was going to include a video but don't know how to on this new format. Search for
Porter McClister with Kelley's Heroes...
I live about 45 minutes away from Songbirds. I visited the museum once and it was great. What I'm really going to miss is the concerts.
They had a Songbirds North stage (smaller venue - maybe a couple hundred people and an early show time of 7:00 p.m) and Songbirds South (slightly larger...
