    Paul

    I just put them into the Family Room system in place of the Nola KO's so they are powered for now with the Audia Flight FL Three S integrated which is slightly on the warmer side of neutral itself. I am going to give them a couple more weeks as they are and then try the Kinki EX-M1 integrated which is in my Office system. That will probably be a good match too as the Kinki was really good with the Verity's when I tried it for a while in the Main system.
    Main - JVC QL-Y7/Denon DL-301 Mk II, Gold Note PH-10, Nuprime CDT-8, Auralic Aries G1, Aqua La Voce S3, Supratek Chardonnay, Van Alstine Vision SET-400, Fritz Carrera Be, (2) Rythmik F12SE, Audio Envy IC's & PC's, Triode Wire Lab PC's, USB & SC's, PS Audio Stellar P3, PI Audio Uberbuss, Timbernation rack

    Family Room - Oppo UDP-203, Teac NT-505, Audia Flight FL Three S, Reynaud Abscisse Jubilee, (2) Rythmik F-12G, Audio Sensibility SC & IC's, Neotech PC's, SurgeX SA-1810

    The input impedance of the ART 150 and 300 are 1 mV. The main reason for playing with the input sensitivity as cj explained to me was noise.

    Not yet as the latest Goldmund amplifier and new pre- amplifier came in house for review. Eventually but not sure exactly when given what’s going on in the world today.
