I’m using a Cayin CS-55A valve amp with mine Dave - sounds epic mate
Any good, or just shiny?
If you can find a Cayin 265i class A amplifier at a good price, buy it.
One thing the Direkts have is better bass - not just deeper bass, but across the board, it’s more natural, and more tuneful.
Mind, there’s a pair of Triangle Magellan Quatuor on ebay - been there for months with incremental reductions in price - that I’d have tomorrow if I had the cash, but I’m very far from it, and even then, I’d want to keep both sets of speakers… And that would be batshit…
I hope you manage to get them sounding right. My little Sugden with its 16w did a good job. The Heco’s were too big for my room. I doubt I would have got them to sound better than I did. I found them not to be bass monsters, I think I said on the phone that they were kind of like @akaYoda Art Impressions, you’d expect more bass than you get, when it’s deep it’s DEEP
How’s the over all sound, you did say the mid and treble were good.
I use SE 300B amps, always worked really well for me
