I have these speakers. I’ve tried them with various Class D amps and - luckily for you - an old school Marantz PM16. The PM16 sounded superb. Indeed, I got the classic “where’s the subwoofer ?” comment from a friend. Tone controls levelled out of course. The relays died on the Marantz, so I’m using a class D NAD at the moment, until I can find another.Thanks for your recommandation !
Any opinion regarding classic AB integrated amplifiers NAD M3, Yamaha A-S2100 or Marantz PM-16 ?
Subjectively : The imaging is superb, almost wrap around with the right source material. I have them 60cm from the rear wall now, on slate stands. Pointed straight ahead. In my set up, the sound benefitted from a slightly compliant footer, rather than a hard disc underneath.
Herb Reichert of Stereophile still retains a pair of these.
