Integrated amp: Component weight
@cundare2 I guess the Aestheix Mimas with its tube preamp and balanced bridged solid state output might be too heavy at 50lbs? You might want to read Neil Gader’s review in the Absolute Sound. FYI I drive my power hungry little Dynaudio Heritage S...

Are there any issues with connecting speaker wire in this manner?
Sure wish I had the time to waste on such a fools errand.
