Default So what does everyone feed their fullrangers with?

Mine are fed with a SE84C-S Decware tube amp & a Njoe Tjoeb cd player. I'd like to get a turntable into the loop but that would require either a line amp or a preamp neither of which I now have.

You'll have to pardon my current setup as it pertains cabinetry. The gear stand I had made for these got commandeered for new video equipment in the front room. Sheesh.

Default BIB driven by Kenwood

sounds beautiful, driven by the Kenwood, a ebay special. It is connected to my PC, also connects to mp3 player, works well.

Livingroom with another BIB speaker, driven by JVC DVD-receiver. Both speakers are great for my home use. Blew up the t-amp while modifying so the Kenwood acquired...

Not exotic but the to me the Kenwood sounds mellow, tube-like.

Default 300B in PP &...

a pair of Siemens/Klangfilm EL-84 SE monos with pre section by-passed, tapped directly to EF-86. ran on 240v, & RCA's installed.These SE mono's impress me. I didn't think they could do much, I finally got them up & running yesterday. There @ about 3 watts max with the 15ohm taps into 8 ohm B200's. Crap.. I can see now I am on a long road with SEP & SET''s...... I am definately searching for a SE tube amp build, maybe 45, who knows....

Speakers are Hemp Acoustics FR8's in vented boxes, driven by this unlikely setup. The big board is Joe Curcio's Daniel 2 tube preamp. The tiny board behind the knob on the right is an Autoconstruire TA2020 tripath power amp. The 2020 is powered by an outboard SMPS. Daniel's line stage is bypassed, the Tripath doesn't need the gain, so I only light up the tubes to play LP's. The phono stage is 10 times the size (and cost) of the power amp!

Sources are an AR-XB table with Grace 707 and Shure V15VMR, an old JVC 1050 CD player, and a Denon tuner.

I run my Fullrange speakers with the same amps that I use for my other speakers, although I like my Scott 299 the best for the midrange on fullrangers.

The others? Well actually, the speakers move from room to room and the gear stays put for the most part.
In one room I use a Pioneer SX-880 receiver for listening to the local FM classical station ( KING 98.1 ). Another setup uses the Scott, with a Sansui AU-7900 integrated amp as an alternative. I usually use.......... (RU ready for this?), a Radio Shack Optimus CD-7300 player, which actually is quite good.

One of my other setups (for experimenting) uses a Chip Amp and a variety of preamp/ attenuation devices with a Toshiba 3950 DVD player.

For informational purposes I need to state that I have a variety of speakers, both full range and multi-way, that are in constant rotation from room to room. This happened after my wife complained that having 11 pairs of speakers in our living room was a "little too much".
She certainly didn't seem to appreciate my suggestion that if we sold some of our furniture it wouldn't be as big of a problem.

Best Regards,
TerryO
