Best Decware Amp for Heresy III
12/04/11 at 04:15:00
 
Im looking for input and opinions on the best amp for Klipsch Heresy III speakers.  They are rated 99dB/1w/1m and present an 8 ohm load.  The max SPL is 116dB, I doubt Id ever want to listen at that extreme of a volume.
My dedicated room is approximately 12X14 with zero room treatments.   Ive never used a meter in the room, but would guess 95dB or so would be the absolute top volume peaks Id ever want to hit.  Which amp has the best synergy with the Klipsch Heritage line?  SET or Pentode?

Thanks!

Hi techguy.  With those quite efficient drivers and a relatively small room I would recommend the C+, the ZS or if you can afford them, the ZSM. Unless you listen to predominantly classical orchestral works that you wish to play very loudly, I think the wattage will work for you. And these amps have an amazing sound, with detail, depth, and solidity. I think your speakers will really like them, and I'd recommend this series of amps to anyone who loves speakers that are compatible with them.

To really best explore your options, I'd recommend a call to Steve. He's the best word on what amp works best for a speaker.

Hola techguy, welcome to the forum!

Since your H III come from the factory with the ability to bi-amp, consider playing around with that. (I use SE84C+ for the horns on my forte II, ss for the woofs...pretty amazing results!)

For your desired listening levels, the low power options would just barely suffice (but sound damn sweet while doing it). Add a sub to that and you may not care.

A Mini Torii or the SE34i would get you to 95db, no problem.
