Now the question ... a suggestion of a solid state amp
Problem as usual .. I live in Europe and purchasing from USA very unfortunately is not that simple

(what an envy ... )
My budget would be 200$ max
I prefer a strong grip on drivers (i.e. low impedance output amp) because my feeling is that the sound (expecially with the 242) is a little too full ...

Maybe the two drivers are smaller ... do not know.
 
Thanks a lot and kind regards
