Suggestions for amping a pair of Revel Studio2s


I am looking for suggestions for single amping a pair of Studio2s. Your ideas would be appreciated.

I hear a lot about the Ultimas being hard to drive, but I think this is more applicable to the Salon than the Studios. That being said, they are only about 86db eff. which is the same as my revel F32 which I'm driving quite successfully in a midsize room with a 100 watt tube amp. Most people would probably pick a SS amp for these and I would think that any of the serious offerings from Krell,Bryston,Threshold,Levinson,etc,etc would perform admirably. Consider 150-200W as about a minimum and all should be well. Good luck, these speakers are on my upgrade path bigtime!
Spinaker01, thanks for your response. I was thinking levinson for sure. I think your right about the being 150 or better. I will keep you posted.
You can't go wrong with an ML amp. I strongly suspect thats what Revel used when the designed the Ultima 2's. I use a ML 433 with superb results.
My room is 13 feet wide-is that wide enough for a studio 2 or 1? 30 ft length, open to hallway and 8 foot ceiling. also considering sophia 2 or watt pupp 7
an older Classe ca 300 would sound great. stick with the studios.
The Revel Studios are pretty flat in most rooms. If you want a little body I would stay way from dry sounding amps like Krell and Bryston.

Plenty wide for all three speakers you mention, as well as Revel Salon 1s or 2s.

Good rec. The very revealing beryllium tweeters in the Salon and Studio 2s don't need any further reinforcement from your electronics, but the woofer area is large and begs for amplification that goes deep with authority.
p59teitel, thanks. i have a sophia 1 arriving tomorrow-cant wait
ps spoke to revel re studios and they said best results with amp that has 500 watts at 4 ohms (250 into 8 ohms) i have a simaudio w7 that is 150/300 watts so i went with the sophias.
Enjoy! The Sophias are a bit more efficient than the Studio 2s so probably a better fit for you.

Haven't heard the Sophias but really liked the Sashas when I was auditioning speakers, and might have gone for them instead of the Salon 2s but for my very live room.
