If you are interested in Audio Nirvana 8" full rangers then PM me as they should be around 96-97db sensitivity.

Thanks

Full rangers, been there and done that. I prefer the balance of a good two way standmount.

Hi Guys, I am listing a bit of my stuff which has been taken care of very well. I am the first owner of the PS Audio Sprout100 integrated amp which also has the DAC and phono apart from bluetooth streaming as well. It is doing duties with my Anthony Gallo A'divas and matching sub. it looks and...

Saw the ad, I am leaning towards two way standmounts like the Quad S2, Tannoy DC6, spendor classic 3/5, Klipsch RB51 or RB81.

I will most likely go for the Quad S2, but not finalized yet.

John Atkinson had this to say.

My estimate of the Quad's sensitivity was 86.9dB(B)/2.83V/m, confirming the specified figure of 87dB. Fig.1 shows how the impedance and electrical phase vary with frequency. Though the impedance has a minimum value of 4.17 ohms at 190Hz and there's a combination of 5.8 ohms and –37° phase angle at 117Hz, the S-2 is a relatively easy load for amplifiers to drive.

The impedance curve and phase angle are apparently benign, but in the review itself Ken Mocallef says the Haut Brion was stressed driving the S2s.

The Tannoy DC6SE measurements arent know but the Revolution XT 6's are. Here is John Atkinson of Stereophile again.

Tannoy specifies the Revolution XT 6's sensitivity as "89dB," which I assume is for 1W at 1m. My estimate was 88.8dB(B)/2.83V/m, which is both within the margin of error and a little higher than average. Props to Tannoy for an honest sensitivity specification.

Although the Revolution XT 6's nominal impedance is specified as 8 ohms, the magnitude (fig.1, solid trace) is greater than 8 ohms throughout the treble. The impedance magnitude drops below 8 ohms in the midrange, with a minimum value of 5 ohms between 185Hz and 230Hz. The electrical phase angle (dashed trace) is generally benign, as when it has a high value, the magnitude is also high, reducing the speaker's demand for current from the partnering amplifier. The shape of the magnitude trace in this graph, with a value of 12 ohms and above in the treble but averaging 7 ohms in the midrange, suggests that the XT 6's treble will be exaggerated with tube amplifiers that have high output impedances.

My tube amps have only 8 ohm taps, I don't know if my 300B amps have a high output impedance. The XT6 does have rising impedance with rising frequency very similar to a full ranger like a Fostex or Lowther, this might lead to excessive presence region. But the impedance plot is not as steep as a full ranger.
