A used pair at £2700 is still nearly a grand more than the Tucana I showed you. Originally 5k you won't find better for the price. It competes with any sub-£10k amp.Yeah, I got attracted to some Evoke 50's at (Only) £2700 on eBay and started dreaming. The reality is, I need that money for other things.
Ok, lets get to the meat... Looks like one cracking amplifier. A real beauty. But £1800 is still a lot. I'm not rich. But what is money for exactly ? I could get one. Or not. I don't know. I have 6 months to decide.
The Roksan will be fine. Energetic and robust. Not the subtlest. But will get plenty out of most speakers.The Dyns have a 87db efficiency so are not the easiest to drive.
On paper your K2 looks as if it will be ok, but I doubt it will get the best out of the Dyns.
If your heart is set on the Dyns - go for it, but maybe get a demo with a higher specced amplifier and try to compare.
In all fairness they suggested a amp between 8-10k, or have I got that wrong? That's just sales nonsense.About what to upgrade. I don't know if I should shoot for a new amp or something else.
Much as I'd love to disagree with TrevC, I can'tYou are swapping out one perfectly good amplifier for one that's a few dbs more powerful, but it isn't going to change the sound much.
As long as the amplifier is powerful enough to drive them at sufficient volume what it costs compared to the speakers is irrelevant. The best speakers in the world will produce far more distortion than even a budget amp.The point being whether spending £5k on a pair of speakers is worth it if there's a good chance you won't hear them at their best due to the amplification.
Maybe it's time to stop this conversation as each subsequent reply is out of context from the previous post which was a reply out of context from the previous one, and so on....As long as the amplifier is powerful enough to drive them at sufficient volume what it costs compared to the speakers is irrelevant.
