So I am sure you are not hearing the true potential of this speaker with ARC 75SE
STC....That is exactly what I heard in the demo. The 75SE sounded lovely, but could not control the bass properly.

I use a Burmester 911 MK3 and its a magical match with the Strads with supreme bass control.

Burmester is a killer amp. I can only imagine the synergy and the control.

Thank you for sharing.
My Stradivari will be delivered for my HT system very soon.
I will love to have the Burmester 911 MK3 to drive the speakers but I feel that it may be over killed for a HT system and it is quite expensive. I may go for Pass Labs X250.8 or X350.8 (much cheaper as compare to Burmester ) for the front 2-channel amplifier.
Currently I am using Theta Dreadnaught III to drive the front 3-channel. I feel that I need a better amplifier to drive the Stradivari
Any suggestion what amplifier to drive the Stradivari is most welcome

I think the Pass Labs X250.8 will be fantastic, in fact, the X150.8 will do just fine as well, with more than sufficient power and control to drive the Strads.
