Parasound or Emotiva w/ KEF LS50

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I don't have experience with either brand and was looking for feedback from those of you with one, the other, or both.

The KEFs are slightly inefficient and spend a lot of time below 6 ohms. 

That said, my room is small : 10'W x 12'L x 9'H.

I'd like to keep it under $1000 so I was considering the Halo A23 and XPA-2 or even XPA-200.

My only requirement is balanced inputs.

I've been circling the LS50 for some time. Also interested in amping solutions below $1k. Subbing for the responses.

I own the A21 and have heard the A23 with my set up, I have been pretty pleased with their sound. I got them d/t Maggie's high current demand. That being said I'm sure the emotiva options will sound great also.

I'd also look into odyssey audio stratos mono or stereo, I was also very pleased with these options and are cheaper than A21.

Peach tree Nova125 was also pretty amazing.

I'm thinking to get A21 for my ls50. Do you think it's overkill or fry, damage speakers due to high current power?

Or A23 is well matched for ls50?  I have a hard time to decide.

The Schiit ragnarok is said to drive these speakers very well. Seems appropriate especially for a smaller room. Plus would have a very nice SE or balanced headphone out as well. Would be almost double the $1000 though plus tax, shipping etc.

It is not overkill.  Infact it will sound absolutely amazing...
