HiBelieve you me a couple of people who own the highly regarded Ayon amps. have ordered the Lyrita amps. after side by side comparisions.
Thanks Cor.GM monoblocks should be able to drive the ushers, the denon pma2000 was a bad choice to begin with.
I did take facts into consideration, the specs for the ushers are the following:I wish people take certain facts into consideration before recommending.
IMO, the Usher MD1 with a 7" woofer with 87 dB efficiency or the MD2 with two 7" woofers presenting a 4 ohm load would be too much for the SET amp in question.
I would have bought the gm70 but it was 14k out of my budget so had to go with something else.I looked up specs on the Jamo speakers. Even though tube amplifiers are low powered, you may be able to get satisfying sound using either of these Lyrita amplifiers:
Lyrita Integre Two integrated amplifier (pushpull design, 10 watts/channel)
Lyrita GM70 SET integrated amplifier (single ended design, 20 watts/channel)
I second that. Virenji's products are first rate and his service is amazing. You can request Virenji fora home demo to try out with your Ushers that might solve your problem. I am sure once you hear his amp, you wont let go of it. Best of Luck.Considering tube amps can be somewhat...a little fragile (Risk of spares and repairs for imported models), and the amazing passionate service Virenji has a record of, I would personally go with lyrita over the others. He knows his products inside out and if ever needed you could probably request modifications.
Atleast that's my view, you are free to make your own decision =D
Thanks Abhijit.. I am sure once you hear his amp, you wont let go of it.
Thats great news!! Congrats Steven, will drop by for a listen once you have the DHT tubes. And then, I will bother you (again) to bring them over to my place to try with the Altecs. TIA .And they have arrived. One SET amp reborn as a power amp, one thoroughly overhauled phono, one spanking new DHT pre. Guess who's also got a 45 SET headphone amp and a DHT headphone amp too! Unfortunately with all the specific requests I loaded Viren with, the tubes for the pre got missed in the packing so a few more days... I must say it's an experience dealing with Viren every time. The amount of customization he does. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Ah Abhijit, is it the long 12" dynamically balanced tonearm? Which cartridge are you using? Tubes and vinyl lovely combo eh?Congrats stevieboy on your set.. Viren sir is always a delight to deal with. He remodelled my phone to accommodate mc and mm carts..
By the way I am a proud owner of 401 with a thoren arm made by emt.. . Njoying the garrard for now before modifying it...
Ha Ha thats how viren packs them . Safe and secure:lol:
Hi Stevie, i dont have any details of the tone arm, will post pics soon. I am using a HOMC cart made for project by ortofon the MC-1H cart. Did check the resonance frequency of the combo on th Hi-Fi test lp. it reonating at 13 Hz
