Thank you very much for confirming what I was thinking about the SE84UFO2. I will start with one and then see if the monoblocks option is needed.
I did not considered the Junior 8 at all when I looked at my options with Omega speakers. But I think it is a very interesting alternative to the Super 8. Less expansive, of course, but also a smaller cabinet and footprint with the same driver. My room is not that big after all. I was now leaning towards the regular SAM because of the price (I am done with spending lots of money into HiFi) and the option to add a sub later. If it is true that the new 8'' driver can handle more complex music and is better suited for rock, punk, metal, electronica, etc., than the Junior 8 would be a better choice for me.
Do you think something like the ZROCK could be beneficial in that kind of setup? Or should I first try the SE84UFO2 alone? I listen to a lot of average to poor recordings (underground and lo-fi stuff, 70's, 80's, 90's rock, glam, punk, metal, experimental, post-whatever) on vinyl, Tidal and digital support.
And what about Decware's speaker cable and interconnect (DSG)? Are they good for the price (I assume)? I am about to place an order and I would like to do it all at once.
Thanks again, Rob. As you know, it is difficult for people in remote places of the world to buy that kind of product based on manufacturers' websites, reviews, forums' posts, etc. At least I know that the Omega speakers are excellent since I heard them in Montreal!
When I mentioned Decware monoblocks, I meant the UFO3 which are monoblocks from the ground up. Taking 2 UFOs or UFO2s and "monoblocking" them gives more power, but now you have 2 output tubes per channel which will not sound quite as clean as 1 tube per channel. If you can spring for a UFO3, you're done. It's probably the greatest expression of the EL84/6P15P SET I know of and will work well with any Omega. Other than that, go with a single UFO or UFO2. I agree with Nocturne79 in staying away from the ZROCK for now.
The SAM or either 8 will work with your music.
The Decware Silver reference IC is excellent and so is his speaker wire. The Decware speaker wire is very pricey though, and for 95% of it's sound one can get away with alot less $$. QED Profile 79 Strand is excellent wire and cost a fraction of the Decware. Also talk to Dave at Zenwave. His excellent cabling is voiced on Omega speakers and SET amp.
