Question for Dali Ikon 2 MK2 owners

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Anyone have these speakers paired with Marantz PM6004? How they perform? Any suggestions etc. Looking for worth step up from Dali Zensor 1's.

Thanks for your suggestions.

The Marantz PM6004 will work fine with most speakers, You'd probably have to work hard to find some it wouldn't work with. Since the Dali Ikons are rated 6 ohms, no reason the PM6004 wouldn't work with them.

Thanks, but I would rather to hear about if it is in your opinion good sonic match for Marantz? I know that's subjective judgement, but it may happen to narrow down the list of possible auditions in the stores.

Sonic match is not really worth worrying about. Your room acoustics will have FAR more effect on how the speakers/receiver sound than what slight difference there might be in matching amplification and speakers. Most people in home audio just don't worry about (and some never do) until you get up into much more expensive equipment in a dedicated listening room setup.

I know that. So is it anything I should to consider first? Any starting point for PM6004?

If you know that, then why are you asking???

My opinion is that you should just pick the speakers you think will sound the best regardless of any potential amp synergy unless you have a local shop that carries the PM6004 and can judge speakers combine with that amp yourself. Good luck!
