My brother has a Rogue 88 amp driving N.E.A.R. 50Me II loudspeakers(which we both own). His setup sounds excellent with an Atma-Sphere MP-3 preamp and Marantz SA-14 source feeding it.

thanks so far audiogoners (?)
by the way, I have Maggie 1.6 QR's.
I feel like I always know what is going on in a recording, and while very defined top to bottom and a well balanced sound, I have not reached audio nirvana. My system is lacking in dynamics (just no snap) and I miss the air on top - it is a little threadbare in the upper midrange.
I have Magnum 99 and 120's, Blue Heaven wire and Rega CD.
I started this thread because I am considering replacement speakers.
I`m using Meadowlark Sheatwaters, I did have Maggies ,but I found the speakers didn`t have any snap either and sold them and bought Innersound Isis. Those speakers were much better , but I really didn`t have enoght power to drive these to loud levels when I felt a little funky, the Sheawaters are just great on the Rogue gear. I have the Magnum 66 with the E80cc tube in the line stage and 7308`s in the phono, all cables are the Dh.Labs stuff, amp is the 88 with the E.H. tubes in it. I also use the Meadowlark Vireo, that is a great little speaker to for small to medium rooms. Greg
