    Hi All,

    Interested in amp pairings with b&w.

    Does anyone know what was showing at Munich with the B&W speakers?

    It was the Esoteric Grandioso line, I think they had 4 mono amps on those.

    Hi I have heard the 802 D3 with symphonic line Kraft, which seems to be a reasonably common pairing in EU especially Germany, and they were excellent. They also sounded good with 20k GBP Naim amps though not as good. The Kraft, I had directly compared to Burmester 911 with a burm pre.
    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

    That's awesome to hear, I wish I could have witnessed that pairing.

    I am a big fan of the new D3.... I have the 802D3 paired with Cary05/Boulder2060.

    Thanks guy for the response. Much appreciated.

    The Esoteric gear looks very nice indeed. Having 4 x M1 would be just fine !

    re: B&W. Only heard them once and it was 804/Mcintosh/Linn.

    I hear the 800 D3 with 4 x Musical fidelity M8 mono's, all Atlas Asimi cabling, it's fabulous, I think D3 will be my next speaker.
