hi mike , happy you can listen the LESSLOSS Dac in peace now....(private joke)
do you have tried it in master mode?
i came from a CELLO Serafin Active speaker , and would like to get a better sound in the future , i have already hear a pair of sophia with big JADIS amplifier and love the sound , but i'm curious to hear your opinions if you
had ear both avantgarde uno and wilson sophia. i know it 's very different
sounding between horns and 'regular' speaker but i like dynamic at low level,
great imaging , transparency and beauty of the 'timbre' ..
For a little more, there was a nice pair of Duos on this site a couple days ago.
I have the Duos and they are very revealing of everything, from AC line noise to colorations in the equipment up stream.
The Duos will shine with the right system behind it- you certainly don't need a 50 watt amp to drive them, and without being familiar with the sonics of the amp you have, it may not be the right choice.
The active aspect of the AvG is the woofer, which to me, is the weakest part of the speaker. The midrange horn, hooked up directly to the amp (and jumping from there) has startling clarity, detail and image, due in part to no crossover. Good luck.
OK so if you want loud rock or large scale Classical a Quad or single driver speaker isnt for you, if you like mostly new popular music an extremely revealing speaker may not be best. There is a couple quick example of why "what music floats your boat" is a question to consider and depending on answer perhaps more ideas can be offered.
why exactly does that matter to you?, it was meant for the original poster.
