  1. Yes did use them both on the ambience speakers, these things are so efficient and well sorted that even a basic amp will make them sing. The threshold made them too revealing and was permanently listening at concert levels cause you could - no fatigue with ribbons, but Valves rock on these fine speakers. Found in general efficient speakers don’t gel as well with solid state gear. Valves can give goosebumps with the Ambiences.. So this applies to conventional quality cone speakers : IMO the Bryston, although a very good rig did not offer anything unique such as the Treshold T200 It was a joy to discover something so different with the sound of this amp, giving : smoothness with totally undiscovered detail and actual air to the treble midrange voicing very organic also more detailed more speed / decay and clarity low to mid bass dynamics were off the chart, so much drive with uncanny control bass definition really stood out whisper volume was just as full bodied as flat out, sonic evenness regardless of gain general improvements to sound staging, imaging and the speaker disappearing act etc Yes very different indeed, really wonder why so little pure class A amps are available or on the market place.
  2. Took forever to find an Amp to sing with Dynaudio Contours and my Tannoys. Aways sounded like a blanket was placed over the speakers. Then one day auditioned a Class A Treshold - old Nelson Pass era. The T 200 amp { 100 watts class A } made both speakers come to life in a way never encountered before. Having tried numerous solid state class ABs monsters and Class D gear over a 6 year period including Big Rotel, Perraux, some Adcom 350 watt welding machine, Musical fidelity KW550 , Bryston 4 bsst, Balanced Audio Technology etc Will never sell this piece of fine audio equipment. The sheer authority and air it gives made for example the Class D Bel Canto Reference 1000 watters sound like a plain 30 watt amp in comparison. Had the same experience on valve amps, stumbled across a Single ended Class A Valve amp for some 96db efficient ribbon hybrid speakers, results were also just magical and with additional goosebumps { Supratek Merlot monoblocks }. Trial+error=synergy
  3. Supect you had the KSA50S and not the pure class A KSA50. Pure class A power amps can work magic on cone speakers, be interesting to try one for yourself if you get the opportunity again. Good to hear a positive comment re Chamilas amp. Pictured transformer appears humble compared to the KSA50.
  4. Stack attack for the ultimate in comb filtering plus EMF radiation attack. Looking back at vintage gear, there was a knob and attenuator for everything to tailor the sound to ones liking. Nowadays minimalist designs only allow you to tune via interconnects, speaker cables, room treatments, valves, front end components swaps etc. to achieve audio nirvana however at a significant cost $$$.
  5. Looks great really, however if hey are very hot running class A beauties, likely to leave a heat imprint the bottom of the Yamahas veneer. Otherwise not very different to Active speakers with their amps shoehorned into the cabinets. Shortest possible speaker cable runs are ideal unless certain cable capacitance is used to help tailor ones sound. Recently heard the same NS Yamahas driven by a Balanced Audio Technologies VK500 Amp that I subsequently bought.
  6. Those beaut amps under the Yamahas look more like the Danish Vitus variety than Krells ? Keeping those speaker cables as short as poss is a plus and lookes darn cool placed under the speakers I think.
  7. Organic room treatments by Audioplantfiler. I must say, some good humour on this subject.
  8. The tall browny coloured panels are ER Audio Acorn Electrostats.
