Dynaudio Heritage + Gold Note IS-1000 Deluxe

How do you think about this pairing? Would Gold Note be able to feed Dynaudio's hungry machines? 

If not, do you have any better suggestions for a similar price? 


I have the Dynaudio HS speakers. My pov is they need 200 watts to really open up. I just don’t think it makes sense to drive them with a lower powered amp, even a high current class A doesn’t cut it. 

I’ve taken the HS out of circulation until I get a high powered solid state amp. 

@ahtapott - they will handle them, but they won’t make them really sing to their potential. I think it’s a speaker that really demands a lot of power. If you read and listen to all the reviews, the same thing is mentioned by most of them. 

I would try to power them with 200 watts. I think they were designed to be driven with more power. You won’t realize their true base potential otherwise. 

Great speaker, but they require watts and current. 

@bluethinker — do they also need to be played at decent volume to sound any good? That was my experience with the Confidence C1 I had many years ago, but I have the impression that Dynaudio’s more recent stuff does better at lower volume than the earlier designs did.
