Iíve had the Persona 7F coupled with Mac 1.2kW/C2600 for a few months now and have been very pleased as the richness, depth/breadth of soundstage, and musicality (especially the bass and mids) have evolved as these fine components break-in. Looking forward hearing about Carlís forthcoming experience.

Got a question for those who probably know much more about audio than I do..Will my future Persona 9H's benefit at all from a more powerful amp in the bass end, given that they have their own amps for the woofers? I would think that it wouldn't matter, but as I'm considering possible lower power tubes, though I'd ask. Thanks all.

Finally I received my new Persona 9H.

And what can I say?...Simply amazing, no brightness at all...only natural sound.

Paired with my amps SET Triode M845 (only 40w), this is a match made in heaven.

The Persona 9H only have 60h...I will keep burn these things for more 300h, and probably the sound will improve even more.

Congratulations! I listened to a couple of songs through these at a local dealer last week and I was very impressed! Iím sure you are/will enjoy them.

Got a pair on order as well..just waiting until the new finishes are announced, this Thursday.
Do you find they will play at higher volume with the 40 watt amp?? Sometimes I DO like to turn it up!!
Trying to figure out the way to go with amplification.
Considering the new Pass XA25, one of their Class A monos, such as the Ax 60.8, ARC 75SE, although I think I'd like to stay with solid state, as the warmup time is a pain sometimes...
Will follow your posts, as they break in..Enjoy!

The 9H are very sensitive...no need for high power...my amps drive them easily.

If you want solid state amps, the Pass class A is a good idea or the Accuphase A70 will be a excellent match.

Lots of new finishes announced today...
Is this going to be a new trend in speaker design??
