Help finding me an amp for my Revel Ultima Salon 2s
I have been running a complete Krell EVO system for over 15 years and I loved it. That was my sound! Full, wide open stage, bass control like crazy and musicality that I have never experienced before. Maria Callas in your room!
But I recently sold it and now have a need for a new power amp. Currently have a Pass X-1 pre, Esoteric SACD, SME table with Soundsmith Strain Gauge cartridge. I tried an Esoteric A-02 but it just sounded very restrained in this set up. Closed in, no depth, no life. Now I know this is good amp so I am assuming this is a speaker mismatch.
BTW...I have also changed my cables to PAD Venustas as the system was fully CAST before so not sure how this is impacting the sound too.
I live in Hawaii so I really do not want a boutique amp. need one that will be reliable. Thinking Luxman, Pass....????
I want my EVO sound back!
I need help!
