Plinius SA-102 for Magnepan 3.6

Category: Preamps

I am keen to change my speaker system from ML SL3 to Magnepan 3.6R or ML Vantage/Summit. I am very keen on Maggies provided my amplifier - Plinius SA-102 can drive these Maggies. My room measures 25' by 13', 6 ' from the rear wall and 2' from the side walls. Listening position is 7' away. Can anyone advice?
I matched my 3.6 with CJ premier 140, and never had feeling need to more power. In the same time also owned 20R.
CJ 140 tube watts were to low for biggest Maggies.
I have got excellent results drove 20R with my Plinius 250 mkIV.
I am sure your Plinius will work well with 3.6
I have been driving my 3.6R's with a pair of Odyssey Stratos Extreme Monoblock SE's with great results.
i own the SA-102 (presently driving M/L Vantage's) and my room size is 14'4" x 23' x 8', prior to my M/L's i owned Maggies for twenty years. I think your SA-102 will do fine, it's ability to operate in high bias Class A will allow it to bring out the best in your Planar speakers. I can honestly say I have never heard a better amp at or near it's price point !!
Thanx for all the advice. Finally, I have ordered for a pair of ML Summit (dark cherry Bass unit and Black grill). Hope I wont regret!!!
You wont regret it... pair it with a tube preamp and like me, you will enjoy your Plinius SA102 and ML Summit combo!
