Am I underpowering my Magnepan 3.6's?
Tok2000..Thanks for the response! The rest of my system is an Audio Aero Capitole MK II directly into the Lervinson driving the 3.6R's. In addition, I am using a REL Storm III sub. Speaker cables and interconnects are Cable Research Lab bronze. Fo... 
Am I underpowering my Magnepan 3.6's?
Audibleguy, I heard many positive things about using the Bryston amps with the Maggies, but unfortunately, have never heard the pairing. In doing some research into the matter, I have come across another three recomendations. They are the McCormac... 
Am I underpowering my Magnepan 3.6's?
Thanks Aball, you're absolutely right. I do need to check with a db meter, as I am guessing that my listening range is around 90-95db. It will prove interesting to actually see what the true level of my listening sessions are! From their, I can go... 
Which Amp for Magnepan MG 3.6/R?
I was using a Jadis Defy 7, but didn't like it. I traded it for a Levinson 334. That was much better. It actually sounded more tube like in tonal character than the Jadis. As an additional benefit, the speaker sounded as it was being controlled be...

Audio Aero Capitole MK II: Performance & Problems
Thanks for the response, Lwatson! If the heater remains on, couldn't that also fail prematurely due to it's constant 'on' state in standby? Or, in other words, does the 10,000 hours of tube life refer to 10,000 hours of actual use (ie, while actua... 
Audio Aero Capitole MK II: Performance & Problems
Tube life / Replacement Question -Capitole MK II.I've owned my MKII for about a month now, with zero problems, and I love it. But I have a question. I notice, that when I have the unit in Standby, the tubes are still on. The expected tube life is ... 
CD Player Connected Directly to Amp
Recently, I took the plunge and purchased an Audio Aero MKII. It replaced a Metronome T1A Transport and C1A DAC and a Genesis digital lens - one Conrad Johnson 17LS preamp - one Gold FIM and one Marigo Apparition 5.6 digital interconnects, one pai... 
Subwoofer Options - REL, BagEnd, JMLab Electra Sub
I can't say which of the above will mate the best with your JMLab's, however, I purchased a REL Storm III (used for $1100, delivered) to mate with my Maggie 3.6R's. It works beautifully. The REL has wonderful musicality and does not, and never has...
