Lucky Pierre Posted December 15, 2018 Report Share Posted December 15, 2018 Greetings fine folks, I hope this post is appropriate for this forum, considering I will be driving AR-5s or AR-3s. I am also avoiding our friends in the other forum because I have seen what happens when one asks for recommendations there I am thinking of treating myself and upgrading my amps. I am hoping for a little inspiration. Current set up is a pair of AR-5s (restored by me); recapped, but stock, pair of Dynaco Mk III; factory wired PAT-4 preamp. I am picking up a Marantz 7T to replace the Dynaco pre-amp. I also have my newly acquired AR-3s awaiting restoration. For the amp upgrade either monoblock or a stereo amp will work. In addition to great sound, I would like the amp to look good; a statement piece, if you will. I definitely want to see the tubes glowing. I'd really like a pair of Lowey re-designed Fairchilds, but they are out of my range. I already have a matched quad of Gold Lion KT-88s, so a HK Citation II is at the top of my list. What else should I consider? Another caveat is that I am definitely NOT looking for someone else's project or modifications, nor do I want to go the CL or Ebay route of acquisition. I prefer to keep my gear in as close to original condition as possible. TIA! Peter Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
