So guys, the 1.8 ohm dip at 92Hz, is this kind of problem generally overcome by high current amplifiers (like the XA series)?

Also, I have learnt MC2301 tube amps output close to 20 amps current, so I don't know if that shed any more light on whether or not they would be suitable for the Sashas?

Cheers, Keyser

My sheet indicates that the XA100.5 will peak out at about
28 amps, so it should have a little reserve....

It sounds like you have made your mind up on the Sasha speakers. Take them to the Mcintosh and Pass dealers and have a listen. Make the intelligent choice which is the one YOU personally like. Do not be swayed by the salesman or woman. Then leave and come back a few days later after you have thought it over. Also, do not listen to your comrades. They come and go. This equipment will be with you for a long time.
Any dealer selling 10,000 dollar stereo gear should be more than willing to work with you on this. You are making a purchase that will last several decades. Remember to take some of your favorite CD's with you.

Enjoy Tad
