And/or seduce me into a good choice.
First, I’d like to say that it’s Paul and his youtube channel’s fault for getting me into this.
I have my eyes on the Magnepan 1.7i. I just heard them at a local dealer, and they sound wonderful. They might be a little light on the bass, but man they sound crystal clear and crisp.
I was originally looking at Peachtree nova150 integrated dac/amp/phono, then I read how power hungry the Maggies were and have drifted to the nova300 (450 W at 4 ohms), at $2200. At this point, i’m not far off from a PS Audio Stellar DAC/AMP combo! So, what the hell? Why not?
Will I really be served by putting in the extra cash for the components to drive the Maggies? Will the Stellar Amp do these speakers justice? Also, will 300 W be enough to drive the Maggie DWM bass panel as well, should I need it?
