Hy, everybody. First of all I'd like to apologize for my poor english...
I've just bought a pair of Reference 3a MMC (old version of decapo's) and I'm now looking for a good amplifier that would well match.
I've found a bargain for an used Audiomat Solfège(non Ref,.)
Does anybody has had the opportunity to listen to this amplifier coupled with some Ref 3a speaker?
I've read excellent reviews on it, and Bob Neill said that it's ideally suited to expressive speakers; moreover it's said that has kind of a "lean" character for a valve amp and I think this would give some more precision to my speakers .
At the moment I'm driving my MMC with a Galactron 2120; it's a 60W jfet integrated amp(no feedback, high impedance output) and my cdp is Sony XA 5es and I find the sound a bit too "fat", especially with orchestra.
I also have a question concerning the speakers: does the absence of xover make any difference for the amplifier to properly control the bass? (this might be a silly question... but I'm a newbie in hifi )
