I run my Eaton 45’s w Zu DW. It sounds great. I think the low end suffers a little bit. They aren’t a super easy load. But they do sound good. I really want some x5’s but I wondered how they would do with the 1.5 watts. I will be excited to hear how they work out for you. I want to hear JM’s pairing. I bet these and Omegas are a match made I heaven.
I have a new first watt amp coming in. Next step is to track down a preamp for it. I am guessing the first watt amp would mate well with the spatials. I hope the 45’s do also. I am excited to hear your experience’
I bet it sounds great with the ZU's! I ran a Decware with my DW's, then a Volt+ then a NuForce STA-200 and then finally a Digital Amplifier Company STM. The nice thing about the ZU's, is that they play well with all kinds of amplifiers, they're not picky at all but more power for sure brought them to life. At the end, with that STM, I was giving them 125 watts per channel. They loved it and the bass was the best I ever heard from them.
It's quite the opposite with these new Omega's, low wattage and intimate, tube wattage is makes these things sing. I think the Omega's and Eaton 45 are a combination made for one another. I will soon find out. But systems are all about synergy
What type of pre-amp are you looking for?
