I am considering buying these beauties but was wondering what am I in for being that they are tough to drive , any comments? What amp would I need? Why is there so little said about them on audiogon being that they appear so popular at the he 2005 and 2004 show? thanks
you'll need a very high quality, high-power amp to bring out the speakers' attributes. think of a boulder 1060.
Cornfedboy, What would recommend for the 101E's? I am using a Rowland 302 on top and a pair of 501's on the bottom. They sound very good , but I am wondering if even more power might be needed.
I'm an Ohm fan, so I got along well with the guys at the mbl room. Glad to hear someone else liked them.
