Amps for Chorus II - 2 Questions
Wardi930 posted a topic in 2-Channel Home Audio1) I'll be running my new-to-me Chorus IIs with an Adcom GFA-585.....250 stated watts at 8 ohms. Is that a good match....too much.... not enough??? Any comments/thoughts on the Klipsch-Adcom marriage in general???? I got the Adcom GFA-585 just a year ago and it seems pretty solid, thought I haven't had the top off and I don't think the original owner I got it from had any work done to it? I know I might need some work to the capacitors and there are some "upgrades" out there...... 2) I really wish I had some way of measuring the wattage output on my my Adcom system. Since 1987 I had my original Adcom GFA-545 amp, rated at 100 watts, paired up with my KG4s, also rated at 100 watts at 8 ohms, I always knew that when I started to see the clipping lights flicker that was all the volume I was going to get and I backed it off a little. Particularly since my KG4s are only 4 ohms (so the amp was pushing 200 watts with them). I've only had one of the tweeters on the KG4s kick off about 5 times in 27 years. Nice feature!! Anyway, I was a little surprised to discover that I could not find on ebay/online a good looking, quality "audio output meter." While we all know most McIntosh amps have them, my Adcom, and many others, do not. Anybody ever just arbitrarily add a set of meters to an amp?? I found some basic McIntosh looking meters on ebay/on line and thought of just adding them....somehow....... Any guidance welcomed!!
