My friend has the same speakers as yours and drove them with Audio Hungary Qualiton a50i. He was very happy with them. They usually go in the used market between $4000-4500. I owned one too and can say that it’s amongst some of the best you can buy in that price range.
An Excellent (Moderately priced) tube integrated for QLN prestige 3 Speakers
Hi everybody wishing all of you a beautiful peaceful qweekend. Here's my question: I have been running around in circles looking for a moderately priced ( under $4,000) integrated for my QLN speakers. Used is ok, but please - please no recommendations UNLESS you have actually heard your recommended amp with the QLN's. I currently own a good integrated solid state amp and I plan to keep, so if I ever decide to go back to Maggies, I will be able to drive them with a high current amp. Right now I live in very small house and the listening area is 11 X 15 feet with an 9 foot ceiling. The room is moderately treated with all the usual plants and wall treatments. I guess I just have the itch to try a good tube integrated so that I can fool around with tube rolling. I am looking to increase the sound stage width and depth and if possible an increase in holographic imaging. (I know every audiophiles dream). Associated gear: really good Holo Spring DAC/Jays Transport, great cables, MG Audio/ Synergistic/Wireworld and a great SOTA turntable with a wonderful arm. ( A plus would be an included phono stage with the integrated). I appreciate anyone who might have a few integrated amp suggestions for me. Thank all of you for your time and help with my request.
+1 on the Qualition if you can find one used. Line Magnetic is a high-value amp manufacturer that also gets great reviews. There’s also this nice Audio Research VSi-75 integrated. All image/soundstage very well. You won’t find many users here running QLN Prestige 3 speakers with a tube integrated so just thought I’d throw out a few good options to look into. Best of luck.
