    What amps would you today want to try on that speaker system?
    He sorry, confused... Yes, genesis 201 or so
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    Yes itís interesting how panels load a room differently to cones

    Cones tend to drop off at the square of the distance
    Panels in a linear relationship

    I placed my CLX in the same position as the morel, which required lamm M2.2 to fill the room, and still clipped

    The panels are much louder
    Bass fills room much more evenly

    Mine is a largish room 6 m by 13m, with 2.3 m ceilings

    Panels are 3 metres from front wall

    I listen 11 ft from panels

    But yesterday I was standing at the rear of the room, and if anything I think the sound might have been better

    I was listening to the gun battle from Billy the Kid

    To describe the bass thwacks as jaw dropping and fast was an understatement

    The Goldmundís are amazing with the CLX! , I have never got them to clip, even when playing ear popping loud..

    Have you ever measured the base response of your CLX's in your room awsmone? True....that with great amplification the quality of the base produced by the CLX's can be absolutely Stellar.

    Does anyone know of an upgrade to the DB-25 cable the NAT Magnetic uses between the preamp and the power supply? Would any DB-25 work or would it have to be a specially configured cable?

    Thanks!
