S/S amps cope perfectly well in the loudspeaker cabinet. Most studio actives have them there and although it is partly for convenience, I don't think they'd do that if there were serious problems with it. I think that's probably an old hi-fi myth put about by the manufacturers of separate amplifiers.

The actives I've heard certainly have fewer problems than most conventionally separated amplifiers/speakers that I've heard. And, as I said, they have most of the benefits of single driver with some advantages over them.

Anything with caps in it (to bring forward the biggest offender) is subject to microphonics. Not that i've yet found a SS amp i could live with for the midtweeter.

Give your speakers a treat, go SYMEF. There a few constructors in your area, they might bring the SYMEF during the audio fest. Your speakers will come alive

You might even consider offering your speakers plus HAL amplifiers as a kit

I'm always happy to take the opportunity to audition.

What is the output impedance? Anyone made one into a variable transimpedance amplifier?

As close to zero as it can get. With a resolution of one decimal point it is actually zero. It works great as a voltage amp.

Most of my speakers prefer amps with a higher output impedance, your amp might not fair well if one makes it here.

SYMEF doesnt mind any speaker . SYMEF will tame any speaker . SYMEF has tamed many speakers .

However there are also some good output transformers available.
