I use GamuT M250i mono blocks & I'm sure RS3i owners have the same.

I think that pair was sold. The add continue without been removed. I contacted the seller.
Something I experienced with the M7 audition. I felt I was live on a piano solo. But I wasn't in the front raw. I felt I was seating with the performer. The sound was so organic that you keep waiting for the next note to come and fly with it....
I recently purchased a pair of Gamut R7Si and am driving them with a pair of Jadis JA30Mkll amps. with the Gamut D3i preamp. This is a pretty heavenly combo as long as you don't want to wake the neighborhood.
I have owned compression driver horns for the past 12 years and this is the first dynamic driver box speaker I liked as much with the life of the Edgarhorns. The Gamuts go down to 22Hz with authority and are very honest to the source. A lot of credit goes to the cabinet's 21 layers of wood keeping the speaker alive.
I think you need 100 "good watts" with current. I learned about this speaker's needs the hard way by owning to little power at first.
I get along great with the RS7i using the CAT JL5 120W/CAT SL1 Black Path preamp. combo along with a set of YBA 600 Passion monoblocks for a different presentation. The YBA is one of those SS designs that has a very refined sound such as the Gamut D200i or the D250i monoblocks. I owned the D200i for a short period so I have heard them both. The Gamut and YBA have similar refinement and a lack of SS nasty's with musicality. They have some tube qualities with SS drive.
The CAT tube gear speaks on its own and they now run the tubes at a low level. Great feeling owning them knowing not much out there any better....simply amazing musicality with drive.
