Competitive class D amp suggestions
@niodari, other than the Class D amps I previously mentioned, as well as the Merrill amps, I have no other listening experiences I can share. I will say this, it is worth paying attention to some of the unique design aspects of the Atma-Sphere amp... 
Competitive class D amp suggestions
@niodari first I will say at it's price point, especially if it was purchased with the introductory discount, the LSA amp is a good value. There is a lot to like about it. However, the upper frequencies did exhibit some distortion, it's overall ba... 
Competitive class D amp suggestions
I've known Ralph for a while and have been an Atma-Sphere customer for some time owning an MP-3 preamp and M-60 OTLs. I have had the Class D amps in my system now for about 6 weeks. In the simplest of terms I will say they made the OTLs obsolete. ... 
Amplifier for distributed bass array
I use Dayton Audio woofers as well for my DBA and use Class AB amps, namely a Acoustat TNT-200 or Electron Kinetics Eagle 2C. I have also used Bel Canto Class D monoblocks. Really you don't need anything too expensive and just need something that ... 
Music Reference RM-200 Schematic?
Sadly after Roger’s passing this is the only schematic we could not find. If anyone does have one we'd love a copy as well. However, that being said they are serviceable without the schematic. Our tech has serviced a couple in the last year.  
Autoformer/Passive Preamp vs. 6SN7 vs. 12AT7 with Class A, Class D, and Tubes
I've got several passive preamps and have recently built an autoformer version from Intact Audio that uses a 47 position Elma attenuator. In comparison to my Berning ZOTL Pre-One the autoformer preamp gives up nothing. Source is a low output imped... 
Desktop ESLs
@paulfolbrecht not sure if these meet your criteria, might be too big: https://www.quad-musik.de/index.php/en/products/electrostatics I can vouch for the manufacturer as I purchased the ESL57 QA speakers from them. Peter Walker sold Manfred Stei... 
CLASS D MONO AMPS buy ATMASPHERE MUSIC SYSTEMS
My personal experience is the amp sounds right as soon as its turned on. This has been my experience as well.  
Any GaN amp good with Acoustats?
I also have a TNT-200, but the direct drive servo amps are what I use on my Model 2 speakers. While Roy Esposito in FL could refurbish a set, these guys in the Netherlands offer a modified version of the original, as well as their own model: https... 
DIY TT
@holmz, I have a DP-3000 (no quartz lock) in a custom plinth so what you are asking can be done. You just need to spec the size of the plinth such that it can support two tonearms. You might also want to think about using arm boards that can be sw... 
Are Music Reference amps still available new?
Well today was an eventful one as we hit a pretty huge milestone in the development of the RM-10 MkIII. Yep the third iteration of my favorite amp design of Roger's. We're getting very close to completing the prototype and then on to testing. Hope... 
Triangle Competitors?
Audiokinesis or Classic Audio.  
Danny Richie "fixes" the Linkwitz Arion loudspeaker
@riverdinaudio just heard these a short while ago as part of an SFAS event in NorCal. An amazing speaker indeed. There are a couple of Linkwitz speaker owners near me and I have enjoyed listening to them. With all due respect to Danny Richie I thi... 
Distributed Bass Array configuration
@brunomarcs no I do not but have been intrigued by Morel and want to try out a set. I built my own DBA as well using Dayton Audio drivers in sealed enclosures. I do not use the Dayton Audio amps, but rather a pair of Bel Canto mono blocks to power... 
Distributed Bass Array configuration
@brunomarcs which model Morel drivers did you get?
