Yeah I’d say definitely upgrade.. high current amps for magnepan
Those PS Audio monos look great!
Maggies are very dynamic. They need proper wpc and high current to make them sing. They don't play well with cheap amps for the most part. I feel that subs are needed to fill in the bottom end. Preferably, dual subs.
I decided to go with a pair of Gold Note PA-10 monoblocks, 500wpc into 4ohm, class A/B (proprietary circuit). They should be here by the end of the week, so I'm pretty excited to give them a go. Reviews seem very solid, and I've always wanted to pair Maggie with some monoblocks. Thanks for all the feedback, everyone.
Wow, seems like an excellent choice. Been reading good things about the PA-10 for a few years now. I believe you’ll be very satisfied with them. Looking forward to your impressions.Cheers,Scott
WHAT?You didn't want to go with tube monoblocks that will shut your house down?For shame...Yeah, let us know what you think, please.

Class A/D according to the Darko review.
What about fixing the Butler? It's reputedly a decent amp with the power to drive your speakers.
For what it's worth, I've been using a pair of PS Audio's M700 monoblocks with my .7s since September, and I love them. Superb detail without any etchiness in the highs, great tonal/timbral accuracy, and with 700 wpc into the Maggie's 4 ohm loads, tons of headroom that translates into a real ease in their sound. They're the most "real" sounding amps I've ever had. For reference, my history is GAS Son of Ampzilla with MG-1s, then a B&K ST-140 with MG-1s, then the B&K with .7s, then an Emo BasX A-300 with the .7s, and now the M700s. If that sounds like a lot, that process took from 1978 to 2020.
