@dridel, Bravo!! Glad you are happy now with the sound of the B&W 702's.😊This article came to mind on bi-amping speakers. Thought you might like it. In my experience I always found bi-amping to sound better then a single amp. Mike https:/...

@dridel,   This review just came to mind!

@dridel, JMO: I would keep the B&W 702 speakers and the McIntosh MA252 amp. Then buy a second amp to BI-AMP the B&W speakers. That should improve the bass. Also, are the foam plugs in the rear ports? If yes, I would remove them.  
Anybody have 220 volt circuit for your amp?

Do I need a 20 amp or 15 amp power conditioner/surge protector
@ditusa I’m joining the 220V crowd. I just ordered a 220V amp today. By the time it gets here (from Europe) I’ll have my 220V circuit modified and ready to power it up. Second: who is this msbtechnology that wrote up the paper you referenced. I l...

@carlsbad, This just came to mind The 240V Option Some high end amps can be switched over and run on 220 volts and I recommend it may sound better. The transformer primaries and the core seem to run slight more efficiently yielding lower imp...

I use the Leviton 4550-IG wall plugs and Leviton 4570 locking power cord plugs in my audio system. They exhibit excellent conductivity and very tight grip. I am very pleased with the results. Mike https://www.amazon.com/Leviton-4550-IG-Recepta...

As per jea’s calculation, you really need a 30A circuit to run Progression amp without limiting its peaks. I concur! IMO: The Progression amp should have a 250 volt 20 amp dedicated circuit. That will give you 5000 watts.

Though the AQ Niagra 7000 shouldn’t limit power transients demands, I would still plug an amp directly to the wall.        I agree!  
Use of a super tweeter worth the investement ?
