Symphonic Line RG1 mk2 vs Odyssey Stratos Mono
« on: 24 Nov 2009, 11:51 am »
Hi fellow inmates,

I have been driving a pair of Maggie 3.6 with a pair of Symphonic Line RG4 mk3. By accident I get hold of a Bryston 10B electronic cross over. I am tempted to explore into the lovely land of bi-amping the Maggie. Base on discussion with some senior Maggie inmates, I was told it is most ideal to bi-amp with two identical amps. However, getting another pair of Symphonic Line RG4 for this experiment is truly a mission impossible.

This far, I have located the following options,

1. A pair of Odyssey Strato Mono
2. A pretty aged Symphonic Line RG1 mk2

Below is RG1 mk4's spec from Symphonic Line's web page,

   Endverst?rker. Class A-B, 2x130 W sinus an 8 Ohm, Doppelmonoaufbau. ?bertragungsbereich:    
     2 Hz bis 400 Khz. D?mpfungsfaktor um 800. Mag kritische Lautsprecher. Massivgeh?use.    
     Edelglanzoberfl?che ?Aranya" / Chrom oder Alu / Silber / Schwarz. WBT-Klemmen und Buchsen.    
     Traditionsprodukt - kopiert - aber nicht erreicht! Liebt Problemlautsprecher,    
     testen Sie die RG 1. Hat oft geholfen. Umbau RG 1 auf RG 7 m?glich. Modifikationen ?lterer    
     Ger?te auf Anfrage. Abmessungen RG 1 - 4 - 7: 450 x 200 x 150 mm

I would like to get some opinion from you what would be a better option.

Currently, I plan to use the RG4 for the top end while the newly acquire amp would be dedicated for low end register.

Share your thoughts please.

Thanks

You can't go wrong with the Stratos and they are inexpensive used.
