At 90 db with 8ohms dipping to 6ohms i'd say yes but more watts would mean more control. What you found then big fella

Yep i couldn't agree more. My amps look like they've taken steroids whereas the Densen has that chic cool Vogue look:dude:

The Densen will drive spendors no problem. 80 watts is plenty for most speakers. Even Dyns.

NIN wit Audiolab and spendors.. hhm no wonder.

Naim dude. Densen will help and look the bollocks. Naim is the way to go for that though. As i said before Naim and Densen together might just be the thing.

My bet, inject some Naim first, in the CD player department. Then try either Naim, Densen or Exposure amps.

If it still aint rocking hard enough for you save up for some ARC's.

80 watts more than plenty

As the valve salesman said, "its not how many watts but how big your first watt is.":p

Krell KAV300i or KAV400xi? No problems with power at all and all the attack you could want. Built like a tank too.

... and there's always Naim... 202/200 can be had for less than 2k....

Wasn't it someone on here who said the Spendors were voiced using Naim kit? I can believe it as well - I once heard Spendor S6e's on the end of an all Naim system... very nice indeed

Lots of Naim/Spendor owners over on the Naim forum (obviously). Great synergy, it would seem.

Even the old Densen Beat 100 at 60w would easily drive those spendors, I had one driving some Revels (87db down to 3ohms) comfortably. Their B400 is also very nice especially at that price.

As a bonus Densen offer a true Lifetime warranty

Sounds like you need Expo, Densen or :shock:Naim - I'm channeling PB again!!! Help!!!!

It's not just about watts, but the sort of sound you're after: all of the above will give PRaT in abundance. Listen & see what floats your boat. And like I said in the other thread: Audiolab are an excitement-free zone, IME.

Happy listening,

Boxer

as the man says. Don't worry too much about the power. It's the presentation that counts. Listen to Naim, Exposure, Densen, Krell.. thay will have a big difference in sound to the audiolabs, and a fair difference between each other.
