Just adopted a set of Vandersteen 5A speakers, much to my delight. As many of you know, these each have a built-in 400W amplifier for subwoofer juice. I’m also running a McIntosh MC352 stereo amp, plugged into the P10, following orders from present company.
Q: the honorable Richard Vandersteen writes (paraphrasing slightly) “plug the Vandy 5A’s straight into the wall and don’t use power conditioners with them. Also, don’t use aftermarket AC cables.”
What sayeth ye PS Audio disciples? AC cable-wise and P10-wise for these fine speakers, that is. So far, I’m following RV orders and am plugging them into the wall (dedicated 20 amp lines) and using the stock AC cables.
Vandersteen Quattro, 5, 5A, and 7 experience (powered speaker users) especially welcome on this query.
