Hello, I have the opportunity to buy the used Desktop Maraschino 36v DTM with 60v power supply. Generally known that Cherry amps are "dead" quiet, but I read somewhere that options with a more powerful power supply unit may have some background noise with high sensitivity speakers. I own 96db sensitivity loudspeakers. Could I have any problem with background noise through my loudspeakers with 60v power supply Maraschinos?
The source itself needs to be quiet to take advantage of the Maraschino’s 118dB SNR.  I use JTR 210RTs (95dB sensitivity) frequently, and they are super quiet at idle.  The Maraschinos are usually driven by a Cherry DAC DAC 1 HS (124dB SNR) or DAC DAC 2 HS (130dB SNR).  So, no worries with your system assuming a quiet source.

We are also running a Kickstarter currently (ends on the 24th) with great deals on NEW Maraschinos:

My 2 Cherry DACDAC 2HSV combo is dead quiet on my 100db Charney Audio horns.

I have 3 way active speakers (18inch 100db 45-300hz, 8inch mid 300-2.8k 97db, ribbon tweeter 95db).

Option 1 :
- x-2 for bass (45hz+)
- x-4 for mids and highs

Option 2:
- x-3 for the left speaker
- x-3 for the right speaker

It's the same price.

X-3 have triple rail so the mids/highs can have it. Let me the possibility to hide the amp behind my open baffle (while they are at 45 inch from the wall).

Considering my amplified subwoofers take care 45hz- (18db/oct) and the 18inch do 45hz+ 18db/oct do you think Option 1 is better than Option 2 ?

I tend to prefer Option 2 to have amp very close to the speakers.

I would choose option 2 and put the amps close to the speakers (short speaker cables) -- like monoblocks, which these will essentially be.

According to web site,
Double rail cap on 3-CHerry, 4-CHerry, and 5-CHerry

Kickstarter state 3-cherry as triple rail.

Who tell the truth ? 8-)
