    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.

    Thought I would chime in here too...I purchased Kev's old VR and have been enjoying it immensely. Thanks Kev!

    The one practice I don't like is the mandate that if you have a local dealer, you must purchased all new and USED gear through them. For new gear I understand, but the used hifi buyer and the new hifi buyer are not the same demographic. I would have bought a few things from Matt's trade in page had I been able (he probably does the most volume), but I have a very low volume Shindo dealer by me so I'm not permitted to buy used from Matt. Whereas someone in the middle of the country estranged from any dealer can buy trade-in gear from any Shindo dealer...

    On the other hand, the economics of that approach always confused me. If you assume that the customer originally bought an item with a cost to dealer price of $2,000, for example, and traded it in for an item with a cost to dealer price of $5,000, I don't see how the dealer makes money on the trade in / new sale unless there is a markup factor of 4.

    ^That assumes only one person in the chain. I do not know how the distributor influences the cost nor what the distribution costs are other than related to product purchase and import. So, frankly, it's all speculation but it is something to do with my idle moments.
