Integrated Tube Amp for Focal Sopra 3
Hi bilaltata,I’ve seen the Octave v70se and v80se listed here on Audiogon occasionally.  The v70s going for less than $5k.  Also, Ive had dealers tell me that VAC integrateds sound really good with sopras also, but I’ve never heard them together i... 
Integrated Tube Amp for Focal Sopra 3
I second the Octave....I just sold my sopra 3s and moved up the line to the Scalas.  I owned both a Gryphon Diablo 300 and an Octave v80se with a super black box that I swapped in and out for the past 6 months.  I really liked both a lot but ended... 
Shunyata Zitron or Helix for Hydra
lake_eleven,   I’ve had an Python alpha helix connected to my Hydra 6 for years and I think it sounds great.   I haven’t heard the cobra zitron but people have said that the zitron is more neutral while the Python alpha is warmer sounding. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Whitecamaross,  I just recently bought a pair of Scala Evos(upgraded from the Sopra 3s)as well and I’ve used both my Gryphon Diablo 300 and Octave v80se with super black box with them.   I enjoy the music of the Octave through the Scala's more tha... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Looking forward to your results!  I’m very close to ordering that same speaker to replace my Sopra 3s. 
PS Audio for Home-Theater
I agree with Erik.  Projectors use a lot of current as well.

mgattmch,Yes, this is the only problem I’ve ever had with the amplifier.   Works great and I expect to use it for years. 
Final Retirement Amplifier-Class A-Upcoming Gryphon Essence Stereo vs Accuphase A75
Audiobrian,What preamp will you use with your amp?  Will it be the matching pre from Gryphon or Accuphase?Thx Ryan 
Final Retirement Amplifier-Class A-Upcoming Gryphon Essence Stereo vs Accuphase A75
No offense taken.  Audiobrian - I agree with you and think you are dead on.   The Essence, even though expensive, is at least within my price range and will more than likely have those smooth class A highs, with the Gryphon iron fisted bass contro... 
Final Retirement Amplifier-Class A-Upcoming Gryphon Essence Stereo vs Accuphase A75
Sorry I've never heard the Accuphase before, but I really like the sound of Gryphon, so I guess that would be my vote. (I own the Diablo 300 but have heard the coliseum multiple times.)  Rich and very transparent with a large soundstage.Really exc... 
CPT equi=core 1800, can you place vertically?
I’ve been using mine this way for about 18 months and I haven’t seen any issues. 
Anthem AVM 60 vs Classe SSP 800
I replaced my Classe SSP800 with a Lyngdorf MP50.   I love the Lyngdorf room correction and neutral presentation for movies; however, I truly miss my SSP800.  What a wonderfully musical processor.  I feel it was able to pull me in to movies better... 
Anyone having problems with their Gryphon Diablo 300 remote?
I haven’t experienced any issues either. 
Amp for Sopra 2
I have an older Krell Theater Amplifier Standard that works really well with my sopra 3s and matching center.  You can probably find these at a good price used. 
Home Demo Faceoff: Nordost / Audioquest / Transparent
nyev,I would love to be able to say that I have not bought sight unseen before, but I certainly have when the price was right.   Good luck to you!  Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the Clarus.
