RE: Help: Recommed Amp Upgrade for Magnepan 3.6

The 3.6 has high power demand so the amp you have now fits that well. The amps I have used are in biamp mode. The 3.6 is just lightweight in the midbass/bottom end for me. I use a sub from 80Hz down and xover at 200/250 per maunfacturer. I use tubes on top/ Quicksilver silver mono or a custom made Eico HF89 at 70wpc, and a Rotel RB1080 400wpc/into 4-Ohms, and have tried the Bryston 4BST, Quicksilver V4, Legacy 600wpc/Coda, Parasound JC-1, and Proton. The JC-1 in the bottom is spectacular, with tubes on top. The Bryston 4BSST,14BSST or SST-2 is supposed to be magical. I am getting my 4BSST in about a week. This will be 500wpc into 4 ohms and should be adequate. The Rotel just lacks the ultimate control, but is still very good, especially if you are on a budget. The 7BSST is also said to be good. Bryston and Maggies are supposed to be one of those synergestic audio marriages which create magic....we shall see....Jallen
