    The Norma IPA-70B is the highest performing integrated I've tried with the Scansonic-series as well as the Raidho X-series under €4.000. The Norma's have SOTA transparency, resolution and micro dynamics. Very special amplifiers.

    The Ypsilon Phaethon is indeed fantastic btw

    Thank you very much for your suggestion Hyperion. I just checked from company's web site. But unfortunately they do not have any dealer in my country for Norma products.

    Hi capybara,
    I'm from Turkey too. In Denmark Fritz matched them with Naim superuniti and it worked perfectly.

    Yes, I just checked Superuniti from Naim's page. It seems more capable option than Supernait, and also little more expensive. Thank you, I will keep it also in my mind...

    Welcome Capybara
    A couple of things. First Scansonic and Raidho sound best when setup properly. That being they should be approx 9ft (3M) apart with a toe in pointing at your shoulders. They can be pretty close to the side walls (30cm) and I like them a meter or 2 from the back wall (bottom ported). I think the Scansonics are great value for the money. Second is they sound pretty bad when new out of the box especially the lows. Kind of like a one note thump. But after about 30 hrs that starts to get better. On other forums most seem to say they need 250+ hrs to really come alive.

    I've only heard the Scansonics driven by Naim and Aavik. Both are very good.

    These are quite nice advices, I will remember if I would get the system which I want. Thanks...

    Hegel H160 ----- not warm sounding
    Musical Fidelity M6si - warm sounding
    Naim Supernait 2 -a little warm sounding
    McIntosh MA5200 - very warm sounding

    Scansonic 2.5- never heared them, but if it follows the same nature of the Raidho X1,then warm/dark sounding

    So, go for Hegel.

    Esoteric K-05,Oppo BDP 95,SoundWare D100 pro
    Accuphase C-2420,Accuphase A-35,Mark levinson 532h,NuPrime IDA8
    Sonus Faber Guarneri Evo, Raidho X-1,ELAC 310ib, Elac 203.2,Acoustic Energy AE1 Classic
    Sub:MK SB12,Elac Sub111.2
    Nordost Tyr2&Red dawn xlr,Analysis Plus Big Silver, Cardas Clear Power x 2,NBS Blk Label2,Voodoo Fire Dragon,Furutech Flux50x2 etc.
