3-6 months starting from August my friend, thus... :rolleyes:

Probably not. I've heard the smallest 30W NAD amp in a store drive the biggest baddest $15000 speakers they had. Sounded excellent.

 

I've also heard a 15W tube amp drive full size planar speakers, they probably maxxed out the amp and there was probably some soft clipping going on. But as you know soft clipping on a tube amp is nothing to worry about and won't damage anything, it sounded absolutely glorious.

Yeah. I tested a 18W tube amp on speakers that required at least 25W (focal chorus 714) and they did sound very good, but the amp had to be running at 80%+ its capacity for a relativly loud volume. Dindt like that idea too much so i got myself somethig more powerfull (60W if i recall correctly). Would be cool to try the rag with my speakers :D.

Yeah, back in the day many used first watt amps to power their K1000s.

I'd like to have a First Watt amp as well!!!

 

The only thing about them is that I believe they're all essentially class-A operation. Well they're not... but they consume all their rated power all the time.

 

So you'd better live somewhere where it's cold and the electricity is cheap if you want to use it all the time. :rolleyes:

 

Or am I wrong preproman?

I think Nelson Pass always does class A amps.

 

I've longed to own a Pass Aleph 30 for like 15 years now.


Edit: I meant Aleph 3.  :)

He also has the Pass Lab line of amps.  The X series not the XA series is Class A/B

I personally hope it'll be released soon, but if the longer the wait, the better it'll be, then I wouldn't be in a hurry! :cool:

I asked about Yggdrasil release date because if I recall correctly, 80% of the work (e.g. digital filter?) has already been done (I think)...

Wonder how many people had to look it up...
Well, for anyone who works in medicine, we likely know it already. I think it would be pretty easy to infer from the context as well.

It is not natural for a man who isn't a doctor to have that word in his vocabulary. End of story.
We RNs know it too.

It's a word most people don't often come across...
