Thank you my friends
the pain is bearable because the stone is too big to go out of the kidney on the other hand I have hematuria +++ , next week I am scheduled for lithotrity

THE ET250S is one rather a pleasant surprise I you will say about it more in some time.... but I think that my Elipsa appreciates the power
What I can say right now it is that he is very transparent and very dynamic the first listening was bad but I had forgotten that he too inverts the phase...

ET250s update :
things are set up, but I am going to have to change my speakers cable, this amplifier is an animal very sensitive to its environment, he can be puzzling when he is badly associated but when upstream and downstream that corresponds well.....IT IS THE HELL

Thanks!

That's one thing that makes me nervous, finding the right speaker cables and interconnects for my gear.

Good Luck!

Joe

Does anyone know how much the ET250SE puts out into a 2ohm load? I know it's rated at 250wpc into 8ohms and 400wpc into 4ohms. Is it's power supply as robust as the Premier 350 that it can deal with tough loads below 3ohms? Thx

Yes.

It will drive Maggies very effectively, arguably one of the hardest speakers to drive on the planet.

Regarding power supplies...that's what separates the men from the boys, and C-J amps are exemplary in this regard. We're talking being in the Burmester leagues here...

That amp will kick ass....

This is very true. All CJ amps I have used had over built power supplies. My Motif ms2001 has 240,000uf of power suppy capacitors and a power transformer the size of a basket ball. For comparison most 200w amplifiers out there have around 80,000uf of power supply capacitors!
