Cabasse Caprera 350 or Triangle Celius 202 Speakers
Grinnell I tried that. Nothing on the Cabasse speaker with that model number anywhere. I have some Triangles and like them. Wondering if the Cabasse would be a better speaker.

I have a pair of the triangle Celius Esw and love them, wondering how the other brand differs.  
McIntosh 275 power amplifier with Cary 98SLP preamp
Polk432 Cary is out of stock on the Mark II. Supposed to be back in stock first of July. They have a huge sale going in right now and I can save a bunch in the Mark II if the sale is still going in when it gets back in. It would probably code to a...

I don’t Have room for monoblocks unfortunately. I like the cad 120. There is an original version and a mark 2 version. Cary is out at the moment of the mark 2.i wonder which would bet better?

I am using a solid state amplifier right now and it sounds good but I miss the real life vocal presentation I like with tubes. I miss that sparkle. I eat something that will give me that, separates or an integrated. I am open.

Thanks. I need equipment to match my speakers! 
Power Amp To Go With Cary SLP98P Preamp
The sa200.2 is appealing the me. Solid state high powered and cooler running. I am afraid I will miss my tube power amp even with the SLP98 preamp. You obviously missed the tube sound. Was there a big difference? The subtly and the air of tubes is...

I like the Dialogue 5 fine. Have some Gold Lion KT77s I have not tried yet. I like the Primaluna KT88s pretty well actually. Just got an itch to get a matching power amp to my new Cary Preamp.  
Power Amp To Go With Cary SLP98P Preamp
Yes. The Dialog 5 does. I prefer it with KT88 tubes over the kt120 tubes. I like the el34s but like a little more power with the Ryan speakers. I have some kt77s I might try as well. The new EVO400 Primaluna has more power and el34 tubes so I migh...

I have heard the Ryan speakers with my Primaluna Dialogue 5 Power amp. A Rogue Atlas Magnum II Power amp. McIntosh 2200 Power amp. Peachtree Nova 220Se. I just got the Cary SLP98 preamp and thought I would get in if their power amps either solid s... 
Power Amp To Go With Cary SLP98P Preamp
I talked to Mark at Reno Hi Fi this afternoon and he recommended the 150.8 Power amp so I am researching a little about it. Class AB so it won’t get so hot in my small room and gives me more watts for my more inefficient speakers. A really nice co... 
Power Amp To Go With Cary SLP98P Preamp
Thanks for taking all the time Al to help me. That was my concern with the Cary tube amp and the Pass Labs amp and why are was considering the solid state Cary amp. The room is small and in the summer it gets pretty hot in Oklahoma. The smaller Pa... 
Power Amp To Go With Cary SLP98P Preamp
I thanks for all the info guys! I like my Dialog 5 Power amp with the Cary Preamp. To me it sounds great. I have just heard the synergy of a Cary Preamp with a Cary amplifier would be a logical move. Cary has a 30% off 30th anniversary sale so I t... 
Power Amp To Go With Cary SLP98P Preamp
I am surprised that the 2 power amps Cary referred to me will not work with my Preamp since they are both made by the same company and should work together. Confusing stuff. Maybe I should just get an integrated and be done with all this confusing...

Wow almarg! Thanks for the info. I had no idea. Heard lots of good things about this Preamp. Should I trade it in or look for a different power amp. Any suggestions?
