Power amp for ARC SP-6


I'm looking for an amp to pair with my old SP-6. Is it true that it's best to match it with another ARC piece? And if so which one do you think? Thanks for any help......

ARC amps not needed, others can work just fine you only want to make sure they have an input impedence of 20K or more.

Amp selection will depend on 1)Tpye of speakers you have and their power requirements, 2)your sonic preferences based on music types and how you like it to sound and 3)how much money you are willing to spend.

Feed back and someone will help you. Better than getting WAG's.
I have Totem Forest speakers, Rega P3 turntable, at the moment a Plinius 9200 integrated, and Exposure CD. I listen to all types of music (I'm a jazz and beyond guitarist). I find that orchestral music is the hardest to deal with in terms of clarity....when I tried the SP-6 recently I got more detail and better soundstage.......could spend up to 2K......
If you do use an ARC amp, the VS55 is the first one I would think of for an SP6 - I did so myself for two years and they were a great combination.
For Used vintage amps,Threshold S-series works great...
I hadn't heard of Threshold before, looks pretty interesting.....
Leftyfox, If you can find a Threshold SA1, SA2, or SA3 (depending on how much you can afford and how much power you need) this could be hog heaven. I broke in my ARC SP10II with an SA3 and kept it until I bought electrostats and wanted to try tubes. I was too poor to have a spare amp in those days. Dammed!!!! I think its one of Pass' best amp series. Period.
I'll keep my eyes open for Threshold stuff.....
