Thanks for the link to the Spendor review Colin. He sums up the signature sound of the speaker really well. Now I have a clearer idea of what I need from any future upgrade.
A bit of the same, but more.😃😃😃
I was talking to Michael from Krix earlier in the week, and he said the Epicentrix mk2 had a nominal impedance of 6 ohm with a minimum of 4.3 ohm. The Marantz SR6010 can supposedly drive down to 4 ohm safely, but having a power amp would obviously provide a lot more headroom.
Might have to get off the computer and see if I can demo some of these modern speakers, instead of reading spec sheets.
