Topic: what is the best matched affordable power amp for NS 10s??

I have a Hafler p3000 which used to drive the NS-10s, but could not rely on the sound for anything more than balancing the midrange. Once it was swapped out for a McIntosh mc2105, the NS10s really became the useful tools that one hears about. This was a real discovery for me personally (friends simi...

Sorry to hear about the loss. I hope such a treasure is found and returned.

As an aside, the free app/service "dropbox" or "evernote" are quite handy for storing important docs that you may need access from anywhere.

Best,

I just wanted to second how useful these are. They rose to (almost) legendary status at one point. In any case, a great speaker to test the "small speaker" sound.

Great price too!

Echoing others' sentiments, yes the cabinet makes a huge difference. IMO you shouldn't try to categorize them by sheer volume. Each cabinet will have a very different tone based on not just the speakers and how many, but the air cavity, closed back vs open, even the glue in the surround of the speak...

If you like the sound, do it. That having been said, it's important to understand what is happening in regards to impedance, gain staging, etc. I know of some very successful recordings that were passed through neve 1066's on the stereo bus as "glue", and they did the trick. As long as you understan...

If he can play to a click, would the final performance be better? Would the track be more emotive without a click? I'm not sure what the genre is, but if you are dealing with people who have any chemistry or history of playing without a click and you alter that equation by forcing the music to a gri...
