    Integrated amp advice for ML

    I also saw that audio research has a new tube integrated the i/50. Obviously this would be tube and not SS but with the powered bass in the Ethos 50w may be enough

    Integrated amp advice for ML

    i think the Edge A and the Plinius Haoutonga look like potential finalists based on all the feedback. Thank you everyone for all of the insight. Does the Edge A allow you to control the volume via an app? Not necessary but a nice feature

    Integrated amp advice for ML

    The Plinius Hautonga looks interesting. Some reviews say it can be a bit aggressive on the top end but it also says that will settle down if the unit is left on all the time. I feel that the top end is a bit soft with my B&K so this could be a good thing. They are a great deal on the used market.

    Integrated amp advice for ML

    i think i do want SS so the Pass Labs would be great if I can find one in my price range. I saw a used Levinson 5802 which looks nice since I am only using digital sources. anyone have any experience with the Cary si300 or the Luxman 507 or 505?

    Integrated amp advice for ML

    I have been researching integrated amps to pair with my Ethos + SVS SB3000 and i think i have a winner but wanted some input. I would like to move up in quality and simplify so a nice integrated is attractive. I have a Juicy music Peach II tube preamp, CIA VDA-2 DAC and B&K 200.2. 2 channel...

    System #526 (Ethos)

    Updated. Replaced RSW-15 with SVS SB 3000 and added Bluesound Node 2i and also switched from Tidal to Apple Music since they added lossless.

    Compact Amp for Ethos

    That is good to hear. I have also thought about a completely different path of either the primaluna evo 400 integrated or the Carver 275 tube amp

    Compact Amp for Ethos

    Interesting. The B&K is 15+ years old so I thought a more modern amp would offer better quality. You think B&K is superior to the newest ICE based amps for Logans ?

    Compact Amp for Ethos

    I am looking a compact amplifier to drive my Ethos and wanted some input. I am considering the Schiit Freya + as the preamp and I am debating between the peach tree amp 500 and the Schiit Vidar. The peachtree is class D and much more powerful on paper. The Vidar is 100 / 200 watts class A/B...

    Subwoofer for Ethos?

    I am currently using a Klipsch RSW-15 with my Ethos in a 2.1 set up with a mixed use of Music and TV/Movies. Music is my top priority but I do watch movies from time to time in 2.1 Here is my question. I have a tubed preamp (Juicy Music Peach II) and B&K 200.2 amplifier to drive the Ethos...

    To tube, or not to tube?

    Any updates on the Sanders vs the PrimaLuna? I have the Ethos and am strongly considering the PL Dialogue or the Dialogue HP. I currently have a tube preamp (Juicy music Peach II) and SS amp (B&K) and love the sound but I am curious if full tube (PL Integrated) set up would be another step up...
