    My Shindo CCQs amps shine with the Falcon's 15 ohm.
    Oh wait... they shine no matter the speakers I connect to them...but....don't say it. That's a secret.

    In practice, the programm seldom applies because they are specified and restricted like an insurance contract. What about all the gear on the free second hand market, why doesnt the dealers do a trade in for their equipment? Maybe trade in prices are too low or something other prevents customers to make a trade in work out right?
    What is your agenda here Walter?

    Interesting. I also thought the CCQ was the only Shindo amp that was for 8ohm. News to me that the
    GM70 was, but I think beyond that, they are for 16 ohm. Cheers -Don

    The Corton-Charlemagnes I believe use 8 ohm Hammond transformers.
    Agree with Keith here - my Haut Brion certainly had 16 Ohm tabs, so did my Cortese. I am not sure about the Montille 6V6 but was pretty sure it was optimized for higher load as well.

    I did try many speakers with Shindo (Omega Super 3, Cain Abby, Devore Super 8, Devore O/96, Shindo Lafite, Verity Sarastro, Altec Valencia).

    The best speakers were the Altec and Devores in my opinion. Omega and Verity was a terrible match. My bet would be on Devore 3XL of the Falcons, the higher the impedance the better.
