    Re: Soulution 711

    Mike, that I'm not so sure on. Having had experience with panels in an everyday environment gives you some insight into the intricacies of instant power & whats in reserve. Sure, someone will come along & say well I heard this & thats not right , but for me, having 2000w at 4ohms on tap & hearing the exact same with 900w @ 4 ohms, I can honestly refer this one to the V8 boys, "there is no replacement for displacement. Sure they will do it, how good will be another thing indeed when the volume gets turned up. Hell I've even clipped my Sanders monos with all that power.

    I think the 501's can drive any speaker out there IMO. The 125 watt rating is deceiving.

    Soulution 711

    I have not listened to the 501's but if they can drive D3's I would think they could handle just about any speaker. I think the 711 cranks out 90 amps of current and when listening it gives you the sense of unlimited power. It seems it would never run out of horsepower.

    Re: Soulution 711

    Shootout today at Design Audio Video. The new Hegel H30/P30 versus the reigning champ Soulution 711/520. I think I can place odds on which will ultimately prevail, but will the challenger land any punches before the knockout blow? Or will the rope-a-dope technique of the challenger wear the champ out in the final rounds? Time will tell. Ding-Ding.

    Re: Soulution 711

    What speakers?

    Will you be taking cost into consideration or is this a flat out "winner takes all"?

    Roughly, the Soulution gear is 6 times more expensive than the Hegel. Come on Hegel!

    Will Constellation be given consideration today?
