Amp to go with Avantgarde Uno G2 horn speakers

jtein -- Tue, 01/19/2010 - 02:53

Hi, in my post under the Speakers section, I wrote how I was really impressed by the Avantgarde Uno G2 horn speakers. I heard it driven by Audionote Meishu SET integrated amp which outputs 9 wpc of Class A signal which was more than sufficient because of the speakers' high sensitivity of 104dB.
I'm just wondering if there is any other amp that would be a good match for the Uno G2s? What are the advantages of a SET amp? Should I get a Class A solid state amp instead like the Pass XA30.5 instead?
Your assistance is greatly needed and appreciated. Thanks.

How about Pass First Watt F4, F5......

Good Stuff! First watt is excellent sound for the money, but if you can afford the XA series amp that would be better. As far as the SET VS SS, which sounds better to you?? At the level of performance you are speaking of it boils down to what is more enjoyable to you?

Get a SET tube amp.  There are many out there.
