Hi Tommie,I have no listened the Marantz, but its know that horn speakers have better sound with tube amps. With this 97dB speaker I would say a tube amp of 10W or greater will suit your needs in a small room.
there are not many tube amps (affordable anyway) around here, I have seen the review of Reisong A10. Do you think it is a good amp? From the reviews by Sean (Zero Fidelity) and Steve (Audiophiliac) it sounds like the amp is worth the $. What do you think? Again, there are no return policies here
Well its not the best amp being Ultralinear, it could be Triode, but at least its not PP. Make sure you get the Point to Point wiring version, avoid PCB amps.https://www.china-hifi-audio.com/en/boyuu-audio-reisong-hi-fi-tube-amplifier-c-48/reisong-a10-el34b-tube-amp-single-end-class-a-hifi-audio-amplifier-boyuurange-p-1300?zenid=8e614e5da8a7d390f8fa6d3bf6b03580
I think I'm going to go with a Marantz PM7000N for its simplicity. I also heard rave reviews about it. What do you think? Will it match well with my Klipsch?
I dont know this Marantz, for audiophiles that dont want retube a valve amp a fine Class D as Maraschino STM ($1200) is a great option, better both than the Reisong and the Marantz, they are member here in AC, they can ship this small amp to you:https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?board=174https://www.cherryamp.com/the-stm-specs
Welcome!Don't know the current Klipsch line up, and online reviews are very sparse for your speakers. Classic Klipsch speakers were designed for use with low powered tube amps and had a forward/rough sound, lacking in deep bass. That well earned reputation has hurt sales for decades as the world largely converted to bigger solid state amps that can cleanly output deep bass and speakers that matched solid state performance. Note that Klipsch is still notorious for over rating their speaker efficiency (not an uncommon practice). But modern Klipsch designs have kept up with the times. The Marantz would seem to be a good choice. I'm a satisfied BlueSound user, so would also suggest looking into the NAD BlueSound Powernode 2i (should be a bit cheaper but "only" 60 watts per channel and lacks analog inputs). With your highly efficient speakers 60 vs. 120 watts makes virtually no difference (the math would say 3 dB).
I didn't realize SB Acoustics is from Indonesia. I rented motorcycles in Bali and the Bandung area and did some travelling there. Bali is one of the more interesting places I've been.
Imports will cost us 30% in tax also. Ugh! You are blessed man, in my country the Customs duties reach 100% over product, ship and insurance prices.For around $750 there is this fine Class D NuPrime STM-9 also is a Member here AC, with 120W modeled to sound as a tube amp, you will a need source with volume control.https://nuprimeaudio.com/product/sta-9/?v=b0c4bc877c29
