Well its done I have pulled the trigger on the SE34I.2+..pick up on Saturday.. Ill post a pic or two once set up in position..

Have to see how it gets on with driving the vandee's but I suspect the crossover will dissipate most  of the energy before the juice hits the drivers..

The Omegas are front runners as suitable replacements unless somebody can point me in the direction of a better Uk based alternative Smiley

Congrats!

The amp may surprise you and give you enough magic with what you have.. . .until you can do better with speakers.

Well, I bet the current cables will work fine. I used the Decware Silver Reference cables for years and they're excellent cables for the reasonable price. It took me twice as much and more money to get better cables. Ultimately I moved away from them because I found that copper and copper with silver plating interconnects complement my system more than all silver do. Just a synergy thing. I've moved to VooDoo Audio (Evolution) and cryoset.com Version 2 cables, and also one pair of Analysis Plus between my ZP3 and one of the CSP2+. The Decware are very good especially for "detail freaks." Smiley

All set up and .....1 hour in????

It is severely struggling to drive the Vandersteen's..

And I would have to describe the sound as just so so..

Disappointing is the word I would use  :'( Cry Cry

Thats tough Shal....Exactly the same as when I had to unhook one of my SE341`s and use one to drive my 898db e/stats. I didn`t listen for long. When I got replacement power tubes for the other one and fired them both up again the magic and power snapped back into action. These low efficiency speakers seem to have a power threshold Lots of members get the magic with say 95+dbs.

It is sounding "so so" because it's struggling to drive the Vandersteens. Sorry, I thought they would do a bit better. They're awesome amps with the right speakers. . . .

The Torii or the Mystery Amp would be the best for these speakers, but I can understand how that is a problem so far away.

You might try the Tekton Lore, which has 8 ohms impedance with 98db sensitivity.

He lives over in the UK ... can you think of any efficient speaker brands that might be more accessible to him?  (Other than Klipsch Horns Smiley)

Yep  there's a real lack of high efficiency loudspeakers for the SET guys here in the UK..In fact if I wanted a pair of Klipsch La scala's they are a 400 mile+ round trip away at the one and ONLY UK dealer in and for this privilege it only cost me a mere 8000!! also factor in that they will take over and dominate most typical UK living rooms...

So long live the energy zapping soul robbing overly complex crossover brigade of multiple tiny driver speakers of which Ihave a choice of 1000's here in the UK..all of which require massive amounts of high power solid state to wring some life out of um.. good huh  :P

By the way ... does that whole VAT + Tax, etc. thing you guys go through apply to imports from all countries or just the USA? Sad

Theres 20% vat on everything here `cept food,.. and kids clothes I think,  usually factored into the price. You have to pay it  from the EU as well. Buying from the US just incurs custom charges, no vat. So you dont pay double bubble. Works out cost effective even with the postage so it makes sense to buy from Decware in more ways than one.

I was thinking that the Lores would be a lot less than the Omegas, notwithstanding the V.A.T.; that's the only reason I suggested them. I do know about that V.A.T.  It's  real killer. We'll have it here someday.

Bottom line im not prepared to order the Omegas blind so I wont get to listen to any. Im selling the SE34I.2+ if anybody's interested here in the UK for 850 or near offer...cheers Matt
