Good partner amp for Egglestonworks Anda II
I am using a BAT VK600SE with Andra IIs. I have also run them with a DNA-500. My room is 14 by 18 ft. There is a ton of bass energy available from those 4 12" woofers. Why not take advantage of it all?

"Can you explain the differences between the standard dual differential balanced circuit and the implementation Danchose for the LS 36.5? Do other designers use the same approach?"Probably not well enough to do any good. LOL. I just tried to write...

Vett93 asked..."The Modwright LS 36.5 uses only one pair of 6H30s in the signal path. However, it has both single-ended and balanced inputs. How do you do that with just one pair of tubes?"Rather than using a dual differential circuit the 36.5 use...

I've compared the 36.5 with the separate PSU to a BAT 51se and a few months later to the 52se. The Modwright was, in my system and to my ears, better in several ways - cleaner, stronger transients, deeper SS with more air and separation. Everythin... 
ARC REF 3 or MBL 5011 - what is better buy?

Egglestonworks Andra II: How difficult a load?
I own Andra IIs and run them with a BAT VK600SE. I have also used a DNA 500. So my experience has been only with these high current amps but I know one Andra owner using Dodd monoblocs with his Andra IIs with great results. 
fine tuning speaker placement
