LF 2A3 amps and a preamp

Postby bangyay » Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:09 pm

Ok, here's my problem...

My speakers will be delivered soon and I have had suggestions to bi amp. I have asked around and talked to several amp builders but most have been either too busy or their amps were way beyond my budget. When I had these speakers made, I thought I would have more than enough time (and the budget) to have two tube amps and a preamp made. Sadly, I was not able to do this and now I am so eager to test my new speakers but still without any tube amps. I do have an SS amp that I use with my current speakers but I would really love to try tubes, SET 2A3 in particular.

Is there anyone here in WS willing to loan me out a couple of SET 2A3s (or a 2a3 and 300B) and a tube preamp so I can test my speakers? I know I might be asking too much by posting this (esp. being a newbie here) but I really have no choice at this point. As I will be having amps and a preamp made at a later time, I would appreciate it if someone can lend me amps made by our master builders here in WS so I can decide which way to go...

Kindly PM me if you are willing, plus your terms and conditions, if any. The only thing I can offer at this point is perhaps a nice dinner and wine if and when the speakers get here... :D

P.S. If it matters, I live in Quezon City, Cubao specifically. Maraming salamat!

Sorry sir, its a 2-way speaker... they were made my Larry (Camotecue), using GPA 414 8B as woofs and a midhorn using GPA 802 8G. Thanks.
