WTB : Intergrated Amplifier or Pre & Power
Our wammer Legion_of_one has promised to close the deal and it is getting delayed due to his work commitments, so once again back in market.
Still looking to buy an Integrated amplifier for my Thiel. Preferred MF A3.2CR Pre & Pro or MFA5 Integrated.. Also would like to go for Bryston B100 SST Integrated Amplifier..
PM your offers if available.
NOTE : Bought Vincent Monoblocks SP-996 and Looking for Preamplifier Vincent SA-96, if any body want to dispose, PM your offers or fellow wammers can suggest/point out some good Preamp for the Vincent monoblocks.

What about Cyrus 3 + Cyrus Power?

The situation is roughly similar to the requirement of 8 Ohm and 4 Ohm taps on a valve amplifier's output transformer. Since most loudspeakers are represented in the 6 to 8 Ohm impedance category, we have elected to provide maximum power into these loads. Loudspeakers with a very "easy" 4 Ohm rating can still be driven quite satisfactorily, but at a slightly lower output power than that available for a 6 Ohm plus loudspeaker.****
Whats your budget - the Bryston, even 2nd hand, will be over £2k?
500 wpc in to 4ohms will get your speakers rockin'
This will power you up !!
Thanks, i don't have the budget for your amp and it is an nice piece. However my thiel can accept only 50-300 wpc in to 4ohms.

You are more likely to damage speakers using under-powered amplification that causes the speakers to clip - than an amp having more power in it's rating, than the max in your speaker's brochure ! I'm pretty sure my speakers power rating is under 500 wpc, but the chances of me ever using the volume to damage them is minute ..... my speakers are also 4 ohms. The power amp has 250 wpc in to 8 ohms and this doubles in to 4 ......
Good luck in your search.
Got hold of Vincent mono blocks and looking for Pre-amp,... Anybody having Vincent Pre for sale ?
