Good amp for Silverline SR-16 88db efficiency ?


Hi guys,

I've got a pair of SR-16s which are rated to 88db efficiency. My last amp, a DIY kit, was a tube amp 8 watts per channel and just couldn't handle the volume levels I wanted to play at.

Any of you guys have any experience with the SR16s or powering similarly med-to-low efficiency speakers? I don't want to have clipping problems again, but don't want to sacrifice quality all for the sake of volume.

I'm looking to spend upto 1.5-2k on the amp, but I'm really just looking for places to start.

Thanks gents.

You might consider a Jolida JD801BRC or JD502CRC.
Or simply the Jolida 502p power amp, as then you would be a better, more well liked person.
Jolida 3502 is very good also with a the ability to try different tube types. For me thats not good because im poor but every time i listen to it i have to sit on my hands to keep from clapping.
