    Me tooooooooo!!!!! The fact that it’s made specifically for Ongaku made me drool. If only the price is more reasonable. Alsyvox Botticelli I can still swallow still within sanity limit IMO, Roma Triode not so much, it’s priced well outside of my sanity limit. I don’t usually go all cuckoo on...

    Do you think it’s possible to blend both without DSP/Xover? Your suggestion for dumping/trying as many different SS/tubes as possible to drive the bass terminal to find the perfect match is very easy to do, there are so many dealers with so many different amps to do home audition with. Unlike...

    BTW: I don’t mind to include the future possibility of bi-amping the Divin Marquis with DSP/Xover only for the woofer if it’s possible, I don’t know how to do bi amp with old scholl RCA only no multiple output pre amp such as Kondo G70 but I guess that’s a topic for another day. Bottom line is I...

    Thanks for the calming words and also the fire for my relationship...LOL!! Fabulous!! Totally agree! I don’t even play instruments or sing (my wife do both) but I totally enjoy good audio since I was a teenager, I consider myself blessed in that regard.

    My dealer will have this speaker for audition soon in May. I own Kondo Ongaku amp and have no intention to change amp. Just wondering if 27 watt SET from Ongaku will be enough to drive Divin Marquis in a 4.8 m wide X 8.5 m long x 3 m high room. Thanks in advance for any information!

    Invitation accepted. I definitely have to go to Vancouver when rule allows, it’s a must, not a question. Thanks so much for the kind offer!! BTW, if I give you commitment to buy from you if I like the sound, would you try to provide Ongaku for audition? Off course I’ll pay shipping both way.

My main business is catering/exporting hobby stuffs for the American and European market, tropical fish both freshwater and saltwater to be exact. In my line of business, the American are very...
