Efficiency of the NX Studio?
« on: 24 Jul 2021, 02:40 pm »
I am doing my homework on Decware tube amps to drive my nearly completed Studios. Decware amps require an efficient speaker.

Unfortunately, I cannot find an efficiency associated with the Studios.

Hoping somebody knows.

Efficiency at 88db at an 8 ohm load.

Thanks Hobbs!

I believe they are 89db.

Yes, I've heard 88db. In regard to tube amps however, one should first look at how friendly the impedance curve is. Knowing Danny designs, I'm sure it's fairly benign and tube friendly. With this in mind, we're back to the same old questions. How loud do you listen and how big is your room? If you already own the Decware's fine, but if you're ordering a new build, it supposedly takes months. If that is indeed the case, you might consider looking at other options. In regard to the NX Monitors, I plan on using a 22 watt 845 based SET in a fairly small room supplemented with 2 REL subs.

It also depends on your setup.
If you're listening in the near-field I'd imagine even a 2W tube amp will get it plenty loud for most people.

In a more typical sized livin/listening room setup, I'm certain an 8W amp can do some great things.

My Elekit TU-8600 which is 9.2w per channel can power my studios to pretty loud levels. That said, I wouldn’t go less on them in the living room.

I have the Decware SE341 amp, somewhere around 6 watts per channel. It would drive the X-LS speakers I built this spring to a pleasant but not loud level in our living space (around 14x17). I'm in the process of building a pair of X-SLS to replace the more efficient but quite as good sounding speakers that replaced those Encores and I have a 20 watt amp on order. Unless your room is on the small side you'll need more than the flea amp selections to hit a really nice level.
