I haven't personally heard them but the Boenicke W5 really floated Srajan's boat over at 6moons.com and he's paired them with his Zu Submission Sub with great results. Boenickes' own sub should work as well.

All the best,
I have the Infinity Prelude Compositions MTS. Vastly underrated speaker. Google/Read Robert Harley''s review in Stereophile. Four-way dynamic loudspeaker with internal woofer amp. Driver compliment: 12" woofer, four 5.25" lower-midrange units, two 4" upper-midrange drivers, 1" soft dome tweeter. Frequency response: 25hz-20kHz. 6 ohms nominal. 96db sensitivity.
I bought these speakers to pair with my Cary 300B SEI Integrated. Approximately 11 watts. An extremely good match.
At the moment I have them connected to my Cary V12 & Slp98 combo. Heavenly 50watts Triode that will bring you to tears often. Just right warm, full, midrange to-die-for, yet still transparent. It rocks Led Zep. Size and scale on large orchestra is just right. Tone, tone, timbre, you hear the strings plucked plus bod, decay, really nice. Well you get the idea. Good luck.
Has Infinity ceased production of the Prelude MTS ? I don't seem able to find any listed at their website .
If they have , what would a used pair be worth and when was the last year of production ?
Mikirob ; you list the composition sensitivity at 96db.
A review at Stereophile covers the Prelude MTS and lists a
sensitivity of 90db. Do you know what is the difference between these two models that causes the higher sensitivity rating ?
Thank you , and please keep them coming .
Saki, you are likely reading a review of the later model, which was 90db. The specs I gave are for the earlier model that I have, taken directly from the Owner's Manuel. The review in Stereophile was from around 2000-2001 by Robert Harley. Infinity no longer makes this speaker...they screwed it up with the later model.
