Default Advice - any kits for ESl or planars

I currently listen to my French Triangle Antal speakers driven by a Mystere KT 88 based amp at 50w/Ch.

I have a smallish room almost square (I know...pretty bad) but I'd like to dabble with some sort of ESL's or similar having heard a pair of Hybrid Esl's lately. I am not sure I could fit in full size ESl's or that they would go down too well with my other half

Any advice on kits etc. would be appreciated. I do not have the workshop or power tools available to build cabinets etc. from scratch, therefore a kit seems the best option.

definitely the Capacity, if they´d were still available as DIY.
Mr. Ehrlinspiel has turned to commercial ESLs only, since the number of DIY packages asked for was quite small. But if You contact him, I think he´ll find a solution for You.

Default Updated info on Capaciti site

Well it seems more has been added to the site....

I hope to hear these soon. Just wondering if my amp (KT88 50w/ch) will drive them OK as my current Triangle Antals are 91 db and they work very nicely but they are conventional cone speakers.

Hi Alabama

I have a pair of ERAudio ESL3s which I drive with a KT88 pp in a 4mx4m room...........

Fantastic sound!......

I have a fair bit of kit and get to a good number of meets and this set-up still compares with the best I have heard...

I run the KT88 triode strapped so its probably not even giving 30w and it still sounds good. Linear wired(about 40watts) it was louder but not as much finesse...

hope thats of some use...

Default KT88

Thanks for the advice, I am looking at various makes of ESL at present to try and narrow them down. The Capaciti seem to get good reports.
