What are you using to drive your Tektons?
Really appreciating the input this far. Thanks everyone!

You guys ever read Greek mythology? I feel a little like the goddess Eris throwing the apple of discord into the feast of the gods. All I thought I was doing was asking a simple question. Honest.

Oddtodd, in my conversation with John, I made it clear I could not afford something like a PassLabs amp, so I asked him to talk in terms of affordable gear. Like was mentioned above, he readily told me about driving the 2000s with the (very afford...

@bondmanp I understand. @frazeur1 The PS Audio M700s are definitely on my radar. Seems they come up for sale on Audiogon every now and again too.

@bondmanp your Odyssey died? Don't they have like, an insane warranty? BTW, I have heard nothing but rave reviews about Odyssey gear so I'm really surprised you prefer class D over the Odysseys! Was you Kismet not powerful enough for your 2000s?

I hear what you're saying, Helomech. The thing is, John Strohbeen himself recommended a handful of class D amps for pairing with his speakers. That said, I have heard good things about the Hint6. I'll look into that.

Ah, okay. Cubic feet makes sense! Turns out my guesstimation was not far off the mark: 2824 cubic feet puts me in the 2000 Tall category (or 3000s if I wanted).

@audiotroy,My apologies. I should have been much more specific. I don't "do" DAC stuff. I am an "all analogue guy" (LPs). I did see that the NAD had a phono stage, but . . . the other features on that device, I would not really need. I shall look ...

@gdnrbob I cannot afford to live in both regions. I am merely impatient and want to enjoy my gear now and take it with me later.
