I still have & love my LM260s. Was running them with a Krell KAV300i and thought they sounded great. However, the amp is gone and I'm thinking of replacing it with a Manley Stingray. Either that or a used Bryston amp/pre-amp combo (on the recommendation of a friend) or used CJ amp/pre or integrated... with perhaps a future migration to used Quad ESLs. The genesis of this thinking was being "stuck" in one listening room waiting to re-audition the Krell KAV400xi and listening to the Dynaudio Evidences being driven by probably another $85K or so in Krell electronics and tubed T+A CD player. Blew me away with openness, airiness, soundstage and complete lack of speaker presence. It sounded like music, with each instrument sounding like the instrument rather than a recording of one. When the KAV room was free, what I thought was a pretty decent-sounding system now sounded narrow, etched and designed to impress rather than convey the sound and feeling of music. Any thoughts on the amps and Quads much appreciated. Listen to a wide variety of music, but mostly jazz, especially vocals, orchestral, chamber orchcestra and string quartets. Hardly any pop and no rock. Sorry if this is running long. I'm not a hobbyist and this is my first post but have found this forum very helpful in getting perspectives. Thanks!
