This is my first post on the DAC forum so please bear with me.
I am normally the type of guy that likes lower powered valve amps - my current amp is a 15w Leben CS300XS. However I am helping a friend put together a new system with some Lenehan ML3 References which are 89 db efficient. He has heard them with my Leben and an 8W Trafomatic Experience 2 SET I have and to my ears both sounded great but he thought they were being pushed a bit too hard to play at the levels he likes. He also heard them on some 500W Macintosh 501's (evidently it will do 1.2KW on peaks) and was really taken with that amp - but its $20K - ouch. Anyway I said I would hunt around to see if I could find some good higher power stuff at a more affordable price. Then I remembered this forum on Audio Circles and how some guys whose ears I trust raved about the Cherry amps on SP Tech speakers which are in many ways similar to the Lenehans.
It may be possible the Cherry is right up my friends ally and maybe I should get one out here to Brisbane Australia where I am. Which brings me to the second question - is a 240V version available?
