I'm looking for an amplifier for my Dynaudio Contour S3.4 floor standing speakers.
I believe there about eight or 10 years old and have a reputation for needing and
wanting extra power to fully realize the potential of the speakers.
I really like the SS/Class D hybrid layout and what I've read:
fast but not edgy, but organic sounding ...
The speakers are 4 Ohm with 86 dB sensitivity, and rated up to 270 watts handling.
Here are the specs:
The Cherries appear powerful, would be up to 600-800 watts for the Dynaudio's,
greatly exceeding the 270 Watt stated max. Although I think others use more than
270W with success.
The main reason I like the bigger Cherries is b/c of the large transformer,
which I believe the STM, for example, does not have
So, would the Cherries (Ultra or the other model) be TOO powerful
for the Dyns and cause clipping or blow the speakers?
