Klipschorn speakers which tube amp?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently running a Yamaha AX700U amp.  It is a SS integrated amp.  It sounds real nice to my ears but I really want a tube amp.  I bought the speakers from Gary.  He had them running off of Dynaco MKIII's.  They seemed a little overkill.  I was thinking maybe a Dynaco st70.  I can use the Yamaha to power my four ADS on my television.  The horns are amazing and are currently being fed by my computer into the yamaha.  I mostly listen to Pandora and or youtube

Hi,

 

in new tubes amplifier you can try like Klipsch either CARY Audio or Toolshed Amps

Then Leben, Line Magnetic, Manley Stringray, Inspire of Dennis Had... amplifiers have a good reputation with Klipsch Heritage, but there are also others ...

 

You can contact Cory Harison of Metropolis for expert advice and choose the best amp with your budget.

I am going to move this to the tube section so that it will hopefully garner even more input and information for the OP.

I have used the following tube amps with my K-Horns; Latino ST-120, 60 watts/channel push-pull ultralinear, Decware SE-84 single ended, 1.8 watts/channel, Dennis Had Inspire Hot Rod, single ended, 4 watts to 10 watts, depending on tubes. The Dennis Had amp is what I'm currently using, and with 6L6B tubes it is putting out around 6 watts/channel. I cant turn the volume up past half way!

Looking at a ST70 right now.  Gary had dual MKiii's which sounded fantastic.  It seems like a VTA Latino 120 is overkill

The OP should consider the Inspire gear, it's a great match, designed by an audio legend, with Heritage speakers.
