Default Looking a good DIY amp to drive Ariel

I am building a pair of Lynn Olson's Ariel and all I've got is Mini-Crescendo DIY power amp.

Does any soul in this forum tried Ariel with Mini-Crescendo? How does it sound with this Mini-Crescendo?

I am willing to build another diy SOLID STATE amp for driving Ariels. Question is, which (DIY solid state) amp to build (to drive ariel well)?

I was going to throw this question in Solid State forum, but I thought many people in Loudspeaker forum has build Ariel and tried it with lots of different (DIY) amp.

I did a quick search for Mini Cresendos and found a guys homepage and he used the power amp to drive DIY Electro Stats which are probably less efficient than the Ariels.

For solid state, check out the AKSA at


I have used a 55w version with my Ariel MK III's, but am now using the 100w AKSA. I think either amp is a very good match with the Ariel.
