    Kev,

    Sorry for going off topic.

Is there any chance you have tried other single-ended amps that you like. Something more in the four to $5,000 range
    I'm sorry, I have not listened to the Spatials or Pure Audio Project speakers. I've been reading and looking at them for a while. I know Jack has Spatials and Mike had early Spatials. I know Jack loves his.

    I am just getting into SET now. I have Avantgarde Duo XD on order and it should be a few more days. Many years ago I had George Wright 2A3 amps and loved them but only had bookshelf Klipsch at the time. They were/are over-rated in the sensitivity department and those amps were barely enough at the time.

    I've heard a limited few SET amps since them and just recently jumped in with the Luxman MQ-300. Sadly over that budget limit.

    I fell in love with Bastanis speakers driven by Whammerdyne.

    This exact setup in fact.

    I would reach out to Doug Schroeder about compatible amps as he has assembled and reviewed multiple versions of them. I found with two versions of the Spatial's that the efficiency specs are a bit misleading as they are from 200hz and up.

    Congratz on the new amp. I have become enthralled with SET recently. There is just something about the sound that sucks you in ... Such absolute separation, rich smooth sounding... all instruments just seem to be there... one thing I love is that I feel I can hear not only the instrument, but can tell what type of material is being used... I can tell that the performer is using a very special piano, for example... loving SET at this point... plenty of power for my KEFs!

    And my SET amps are not even in the same world as yours... so I can only imagine the sound coming from your new amp!!!
