Hegel H80 for KEF LS50? Or other amp?
I've owned several of the integrated amplifiers above; LFD; Naim; and Hegel H80 but never paired them with the LS50's. They've all been enjoyable when paired to my Penaudio Cenyas but will be able to finally pair my Hegel H160 and LS50's coming la... 
Hegel H160 Integrated
Awesome pairing w/ both. Also a fan of Hegel. Previously owning the H70; H80; and HD11 DAC. 
Hegel H160 Integrated
I am planning to pair my H160 to a pair of rear firing Penaudio Cenyas and front firing Scansonic MB-1s. My new favorite mini monitor. 
Scansonic mb serie
Opening up beautifully. I am somewhere around 40+ hours and I was ready to re-box under 20.... Very nice for their size and level of transparency... 
Scansonic mb serie
I received my MB-1's today. Only on hour two. The agony and impatience....

hegel h80
Under utilizing and hence my sale of this fine piece... but a tremendous performer. Combined with my Hegel HD11 DAC and Crimson UK Cables to a pair of Penaudio Cenyas... I am thinking I should cancel its sale.Highly recommended.... 
Best Integrated, period.
I have had a few integrated amplifiers... and separates in the past. Rotel; McIntosh; Bel Canto; LFD; Sonneteer; Naim; and pending Hegel design.The cost was too irresistable to pass up. I bought a Teac AI-1000 as I wait for my more "expensive gear...

LFD Mk IV vs Hegel 100
There was a glowing review with the Unison and Opera Callas in last months Stereophile. SS just works a bit easier with my lifestyle; where listening time is a rare commodity.

Trenner & Friedl Art Speaker: A Year Later
Hi George.It's difficult to audition every monitor that becomes of interest and even rarer the opportunity to find someone who's heard similar designs. I just have a large interest in monitor designs. I have owned several and was intrigued after h...

George,Not being able to audition the Arts and having owned the Penaudio Cenyas and Harbeth M30.1; if heard- how do they measure up similarities or differences?Thank you,John 
Trenner & Friedl Art Speaker: A Year Later
Hi George,The Art could be my next speaker. Actually, I know they will be. My last two speakers were the Penaudio Cenya and Harbeth M30.1. Similarities or differences if you've heard either? The question is a bit ambiguous but I am unable to audit... 
Review: Penaudio Cenya
Owned both as well. But will not be selling my Cenya's in any forseeable future despite my rotating audio merry-go-round. Matched superbly well w/ my Sonneteer Alabaster; LFD Mk IV; with Crimson Audio speaker cables.Despite their 4-ohm load; both ...
