Thank you, i have not and did not want to go that route, since he is an owner/retailer of the PrimaLuna line and I want real experience from someone that has the same speakers as I do. I know its a longshot but I will see if anyone responds. Once I am ready to buy then I may talk with him.
Thanks again for the tip.
I have tried google search but just can't come up with anything. I did not try you tube though. As I was about to send this I tried google again and just used B&W and primaluna and did not specify 804, and I came up with a few seemingly decent hits. I will browse those hits.
Thank you for helping me along, and hopefully I will get some answer or something I can work with.
In the meantime if anyone has first hand experience please chime in
After spending over 25 years working in the audio industry and having experience with many models of B&W, including the 804S, I am in agreement with the comments about power in this review.
As unsound said, "The B&W's aren't exactly tube friendly." The impedance of the 804S is rated at 8 ohms, however it dips to 3 ohms. A high current SS amp is a better match for this speaker. IMHO, looking at PrimaLuna just moves you sideways keeping the same amp/speaker mismatch. Also, it has been noted that PrimaLuna amps typically have a high output impedance, which is better suited for speakers with a reasonably flat impedance curve.
Maybe I have never really heard Great sound! LOL.... I like what I am hearing because it was better with the tube amp than the dual mono Emotiva amps that I had with the XSP-1 gen two Preamp to my ears anyways. Sure wish I could hear the Tektons with my amp and decide from there. To be honest, all the info in the charts and reviews are WAY over my head. I have tried to understand them but its just not sinking in. I just go by the sensitivity of the speakers and "hope". I know its not a good way to go about things but to try to decipher all that info, just hurts......
Can you tell I am new at this? LOL
