Believe it or not I managed great sound with Acoustat 3's (my first foray into high end)and an Adcom 555 which was modified by GASWORKS. I stupidly sold them years ago for dynamic speakers. My wife recently purchased a pair of 2's at a garage sale-100 bucks bought a PS Audio preamp, two monoblock amps, the speakers, an Adcom tuner, a Magnavox CD player, and an Ariston turntable! I'm now driving the speakers with either a pair of Rowland Model Ones in bridged mode or a LLano A200. Both produce great, but different, sound. Both are available used at reasonable prices.
