Now that my new BHK Pre & DirectStream DAC have settled in, I have been enjoying exploring my music library in a lot more depth & variety than ever before! These recent PS Audio additions have meant that I don’t have to focus on the best recordings - but just relax and enjoy the music and the memories of albums seldom played.
For that I am grateful to PS Audio!
Now … the next stage of my upgrade plan is my amplifier. It is currently a B&O Ice based chip (modified) with linear Power Supply (1500VA). Custom built to drive 1 ohm Apogee Scintillas. Also has zero DC offset.
The chip and the technology is probably getting a bit old now (~ 8 years ago I think). I believe I can achieve the next round of improvements with a new amplifier.
I am open for suggestions - and obviously would be considering the BHK 250 Stereo, the BHK 300 or also a Mcintosh (MC462 or MC611). I am open for other suggestions as well that may suit the B&W 800 Diamonds.
These speakers definitely suit an amp that can have some grunt since they do dip to 3 ohms at certain frequencies.
Is the Stereo 250 BHK up to the task? or is the 300 BHK a better fit?
