Helio everyone, first time on AudioCircle and to Daedalus Audio Circle, I purchased the MUSE model back in 2014, May be the first ones to get out of Lou´s shop.
Since I live in Mexico, I didn't audition the speakers first. I was Setting a new system from scratch, I sold my previous Cello system and begun to purchase some equipment when I saw the opportunity of a good deal, such was the case for a Yamamoto Tube DAC and a Shindo integrated Amp.
I read a Lot of reviews saying that the Shindo-Devore speakers were a match made in heaven. But I also read a Lot of good reviews about the Daedalus speakers, and some Audiogon post that favour the Daedalus over the Devore, so I ended up Purchasinag the Muse for my Shindo amp.
I kept the combo for about 3 years. The sound was good but not what I expected. I always suspected that even as efficient as they are, the 12 watt Shindo was lacking the juice the Muse needed to sing best.
So I started borrowing amps from Friends, both Tube and SS, but more powerful.
My finding was that a 35W Redgum made them sing very very nice. And needless to say, most SS amps much better than the tubed ones.
Besides, Lou uses Modwright to Voice his speakers. So this two facts made me re-think any tube based amp with Daedalus .
So I sold the Shindo and purchased a Pass Labs INT-30A pure class A integrated . I had some previous experience with Threshold and Nelson Pass Nakamichi designed amps, so for me it was the best bet.
I have had this set up for over a year now and its really good. I Believe the combo Pass-Daedalus works extremely well. Recommended
