I use Zesto Eros 300 monoblocks to drive my Elipsa SEs. A sweet combination!

I'm using a Wells Audio Majestic Integrated which has been highly upgraded by Wells, to power my Guarneri Homage. Glorious! I will eventually try my upgraded vintage tube gear which consists of MFA Luminescence and M120 mono amps (quad of KT-88's), and report back.

But at the moment I'm in sonic heaven!

Amati Homage (No.225) with (circa 2008) Lamm l2 reference and M2.2. Good reproduction as well as unfatiguing sound.

Default SF Best Match

I encourage anyone who is able to pair SF speakers with Burmester gear. The sound is nothing short of phenomenal!!

Hi all

Very interesting read this Thread

I have not noticed any one with similar gear as I have

I have not changed anything for a good 10 years as I was happy with what I was hearing , very difficult to compare to anything else as I put this together via internet research and mostly what others had done as I at the time was no where near a decent audio shop to compare.

I have a pair of old
Guarneri Homage
Music First Classic(Pre)
Meridian 556 (100w)
Consonance Droplet (CD)
Interconnects Yter
Speaker Cable Cardas Golden Cross

I also have and have not used for along time a Pair Melody Pure Blacks which are KT88 100w Amps which I am now keen to get going again
