I own the Aristotle ultimate, (same drivers) and the power amp I use, which really brings them alive is the air tight atm1.
Sorry to be coming in so late
I am likely the owner who used Hornings with the ZH 230
In my case I was using the Horning Agathon Ultimate
I have since acquired a pair of custom 12w pure class A mono versions of the 230 and they are outstanding
I have just ordered a pair of the new Ellipse version of the Euphrodite as I love the Hornings and have found no better set of compromises for my tastes
In due time I can share my impressions
I am sure it will succeed as I have spent a fair bit of time listening to the speakers at Jeffery's place in NY
I also have a Horning Sati 520b ultimate that is excellent with the Hornings, as one might imagine.
Congrats! on you new acquisition - are you getting the latest version with brand new 16 bass drivers?
If you could provide some details of the size of room, other electronics, differences you notice between your amplification.
Types of music you play and volume you listen would be great!
Lastly since you have done allot of listening at Jeff C's place why you did not go with either Tron or Tw but in a different direction.
