We connect the Amp 150 to our reference set:
- Focal Sopra No1
- Pass Labs XP-12
- Bryston 4B SST3
- Driade Flow speaker cable
- Grimm TPM interlinks
- Audioquest mains cable
- Kemp Electronics Powerstrip 8plus
- Metrum Acoustics Pavane DAC
- Denon DCD A-110
On the Focals it sounds good, but a bit distant and sometimes a bit bright in the higher regions. The beryllium tweeters can become too dominant in combination with some amplifiers.
Fortunately, we have some alternatives in ‘da house’. We connect the Piega Premium 501 from the multitest floorstanders around 4,000 euros to the Gato amplifier. In terms of design also a nice match, these slim floorstanders with the Gato’s.
