Decent T-amp or Integrated amp ?
« on: June 21, 2012, 07:29:14 PM »
I know a while back maybe a year or two there was some discussion about T-amps. I have been thinking about changing my playback system up a little.  I now only use a CD player and a Ipod.  I might get a oppo player to playback dvd wavs of the 24bit48k shows I have done.  I have been thinking about a new Integrated amp or a T-amp.  Any sugestions.  I will be pushing a set of Paradign 3se mkIII(still one of the best speakers I have ever heard). My days of rocking the foundation of the house are over.  However I do want something that plays decently loud.  But I want clarity.  Buget under 1k or under..... 

Peace OOK

I looked up those speakers and they appear to be fairly sensitive, meaning that you don't need a whole lot of power for them to play loudly.  They will also accept a wide range of amplifiers because of their flexible power handling requirements.  If you are going for a vintage sound, I suggest that you look at the Qinpu A-6000 MKII integrated amplifier.  It's a tube hybrid design and will likely power those speakers very well.  The amp costs around $250 and a higher quality set of tubes is around $15, shipped from ebay.  I purchased one of these myself to power a pair of Silverline Minuet speakers and was very, very impressed with its warmth, imaging, and ability to power the speakers enough for a decent-sized room.  It has RCA inputs for a CD player and a 1/8" input for an iPod, and also has a line-out for use with headphones or a subwoofer.
