    EAR 834T Hybrid ?

    According to blurb.... ’Input stages use both valves and transistors, drawing on the unique strengths of each to make this one of the most sophisticated-sounding amps’ Any warmers have experience or opinions on the amp being a) an amp worth splurging on and b) as a good pairing with my ML panels? thanks

    EAR 834T Hybrid ?

    Thanks uzzy I am a fan of valve amps - currently using CJ pre + EL84 based Kora power amp which is really good on the ML panels - but as always I'm looking the next improvement and I have heard so much good things about EAR amps. Amp for life would definitely be good! On the mosfet + xformer output...might that take the 834T generally closer to a class D presentation? (I had a nice Lyngdorf in the past and liked it but the Kora trumped it in the end)

    EAR 834T Hybrid ?

    Any thoughts on E.A.R. 834T hybrid integrated ? Thinking of trying one out on my martin logan panels (bi-amped - 834T would be feeding panel only) As a fan of tubes, hoping it might be best of both worlds on a fairly demanding low impedance load There is a review that gave a glowing review paired with Maggies ESL's so perhaps migh expect same on ML panel?? http://www.enjoythemusic.com/superioraudio/equipment/1206/ear_yoshino_834t.htm Thoughts very welcome....

    Raising Height of Floorstanders - Best Way?

    Thanks Serge + everyone - wooden block(s) it is + rubber / felt pads to the wooden floor Just need to find something suitable for a reasonable cost....anyone else done this? - blocks need to be about 350 x 250 at a height/thickness of 150mm
  7. Looking for advice on raising height of my Proac D18 by approx 6" (150mm) I already have them raised by placing on top of some old speakers turned on their side (as a trial) and it works very well indeed for my needs Should I just go with hardwood wooden blocks or something more sophisticated like small stands? I sit my speakers on pads and not spikes for room / flooring reasons Any thoughts? PS PLEASE don't advise me not to raise them or any stuff like that - they HAVE to be raised for a very good reason!

    Budget Used Actives for Summer House?

    Finally had time to sit out in summer house and my squeezbox radio isnt cutting it! Any more ideas ?
  9. Hi john, Thanks for offer....price for that particular model, even with new panels, is prohibitive for me relative to other previously advertised used CLS IIz speakers - sorry.
  10. Not possible to get the CLS II in Germany Still looking....
  11. Those would be perfect.... I've emailed asking for a shipping price in the highly unlikely event thats its practical. Thanks also for other ideas....1st choice is defo Logans as I am sold on their ESL panels but not closed to other possibilities, would need to demo alternatives tho
  12. Up for the weekend
  13. Bit of a long shot, looking for a pair of Martin Logan CLS speakers. Ideally the CLS II but anything considered. Also have a superb pair of ML SL3 if anyone wants part ex moving towards the Logan panel/woofer hybrid design. Based in central Scotland but will happily travel for the right pair.
