Marantz 1060: A good match ! (?)

Recommended Posts

Hi all !

Just wanted to share my experience with you.

After trying several amp on my KLF20 (I'm lucky, I got 2 pairs of KLF20, and I'm in Europe, hardest to find) I found a perfect match for a small/medium room.

The little integreted Marantz 1060 ! That really rocks ! Well in fact, voice is smooth, all is very well detailed !

Does some of you tried this association, Marantz 1060 and some "reasonable" Klipsch ? (I'm not speaking about CW of course..., but about KLF series, RF-5 / 7, RF83... )

For bigger rooms, my collection of Phase Linear match really well with my KLFs ;-)

Now, I'm looking after a tube amp. Thought at some stuff with 300B, but perhaps not the best choice with KLF 20 ?

Any suggestions ?

Thanks !

Alan

Thanks for your reply SWL

I don't know the KG line, but spec are good. Look like a klf 20, less a horn.

Seems that little Marantz really fit well with Klipsh floorstanding speakers...

For the tube amp, I seek on the forum.

Seems that EL 34 or EL 84 would be a better choice rather than 300B for my KLF...

Some of you could give me his feedback on it ?

Thanks

I have a pair of RF-82's that are powered by my Marantz 3250B and 170DC wow do they sound good, nice and warm. Before that that were powered with a Marantz 2015, I was amazed at how well that little receiver sounded with the 82's. IMO Klipsch and Marantz can't be beat! That is besides tubes[:)]

Rocko

o boy

what a combination

i am proud owner of a marantz 2230

30 watts ,of high current drive

horse power the klipsch wants

only second to tubes

i hv run art audio 100 watts tube mono blocks with a pair of klipsch bookshelf sb 3s

very well controlled even at devastating volumes

though not amazing at all

but as i connected my 2230 (purchased 5 days back or so ) with my RF3s

everything was there

the best sound i cud have so far

warm,juicy,mellowy,velvetty

sorry if u start feeling hunger pangs now

lolz

thought it might help

stay posted

a bit too bright

"a bit too bright "

this was meant for the SB3s and the tubes (ART AUDIO MAESTRO )

the marantz is warm and thrilling

plenty of low end even with 30 watts

so dont think ur going wrong

those klipsch r 98 dbs

they need a few watts only to shake ur roof

and i have loved the look of those vintage 1060 marantzes

wish id find one somedayy

Hi everyone,

I was under one or two tons of work (and my shoulders are not so wide...) ;-)

Thanks for your replies !

I'm happy to read that some of you have good returns on Marantz matching with Klipsch.

Perhaps I will seek for a bigger Marantz' model (but not necesseraly bigger power) rather than tubes... ?

But seems that the little 1060 is a good catch.
