  1. Con, Where do you include watts per channel in this equation because typically that's what amplifiers are measured against when listing specs? I get what you are saying about the intimate connection between voltage and current but it seems listening to Dave that current is everything. Apologies to Dave if I have misinterpreted the thrust of his statement. Invariably very little if anything in the specs for a Sanders emphasises how much current it can deliver. Its exclusively geared towards the wpc into specific impedance levels. BTW great thread guys. Have learned a lot!
  2. That's a really interesting point to make. As a lover of all things maggies its interesting that Magnepan will nominate ideal amplifiers in terms of watts. But listening to @davewantsmoore during this conversation its really been impressed upon me how important current is in this. Dave I wonder why speaker manufacturers dont go to the trouble of identifying the sweet spot for the current required to get the best out of its speakers. I say this because its often the case that audiophiles will choose an amplifier on the basis of wpc capabilities at particular loads. As an exampl
  3. Item: Bohlender Graebener RD 75 Price Range: Negotiable Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Should have bought them off @HQD when listed a while ago but wasnt in a position to do so. Looking to implement with maggies. According to the specs the 75s covered from 150 - 18.5k. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  4. Admittedly I'm in the middle of a DIY build where I need to send the amplifier back to the vendor over a transformer issue that will require replacement but I've learned that at some point you have to cut your losses and move forward in a way that enables you to rest easy at night. You can always get your money back for parts but what isn't returnable is the hours that you spend undertaking these builds. That being said the decision to go down the route of a DIY build is a personal choice. I personally think that this isn't all doom and gloom. It's a perfect opportuni
  5. Not quite. The transformer wasn't correctly specked which is why Anthony has agreed to replace.
  6. Potentially Andy but the experts that have looked at mine have identified a glaring issue being the transformer which wasn't specked properly. There are other concerns as well but the transformer being changed is a start.
  7. What an absolutely beautiful looking system. I'll never be in the league to own one so it's great to see others in the position to do so. May I ask what the speakers are? I'm a flat panel Maggie owner so they caught my eye. Good luck with the sale.
  8. Just noticed these are sold. Obviously very good buy.
  9. Yeah I wonder how these two would compare in a shoot out. Seems very well built at 50kg. I had not heard of Sonic Frontiers but obviously I have heard of Rogue Audio.
  10. Yeah you are correct. It seems like people who do buy them and then sell upgrade to something big I'm looking overseas. The DARK model is even better
  11. Hi mate, Yes I know. But if you have a look they sold for $3.9k second hand last year on this forum.
  12. That's what I am hearing. Considering what the last pair were sold for it appears to punch way above its weight. Its actually good to see a product that peforms so well that isn't priced off the charts.
  13. Item: ROGUE M 180 MONOBLOCS Price Range: NEGOTIABLE Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Hearing really good things about these valve amps driving Magnepan speakers. Heard from someone in the know that they preferred these to the audio research. Last pair went for the following price. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible.

  14. And has/had the reputation to handle difficult loads as well. Punches way way above its weight.
