I just listened to the Vandys driven by all Naim stuff. I mean all Naim from the cd player to the spkr cables. I thought they sounded a little edgy and not warm at all. The dealer had no tube gear to to hook 'em up to. Anybody heard the 5's driven by tubes?
USING THE ROGUE 120'S WITH THE VANDERSTEEN 3A SIGNATURES IN THE TRIODE MODE AND HAVING MUCH SUCCESS.THESE AMPS HAVE TO BE ONE OF THE BETTER DEALS IN ALL OF AUDIO. KUDIO'S TO MARK O'BRIEN AND TEAM ROGUE.
I have heard the 5's driven by ARC VT200 and it sounded cold, bright, and not very coherent. Maybe the amp has not had a chance to break in yet. However, when driven by Quicksilver V4 monoblocks (from another dealer), the 5's just sounded wonderfully. Go figure.
