I currently have a pair of B&W 703's and although the quoted manufacturer efficiency is 90dB an a reviewer noted otherwise:
"I would judge this speaker to be moderately difficult to drive. For that reason, I would conservatively rate its nominal impedance at 4ohms. The 703's sensitivity measured about 88dB/2.83V/m."
I use the speakers for both music and 2 ch HT. I like the sound of tubes but I need the grunt of a high power transistor amp to properly drive these speakers. Would it be possible/advisable to use the i84 as a preamp (can it be done)?
If not, does vista audio plan on producing a preamp in the near future?
