I recently purchased a pair of Tannoy System 12 DMT II speakers to use in a home studio. I'm now looking for an amp. The speaker's specs recommend an amp between 50 and 300 watts per channel (8ohms) but suggest strongly on erring on the upper end of the scale. Looking through the local eBay equivalent, mercado livre, there are quite few options between 50 and 100 watts (prices in Brazilian real): Urei 6230 R$1900 Hafler TA 1600 R$990 Hafler P1500 R$1200 Hafler dh200 (don't know if it's a kit model) R$1000 Bryston 3B $2300 Bryston 2blp R$1800 There's also a crown CSL 800 (R$1200) and a choice of 2 macro-tech 1200 amps for sale (R$1500 and R$2500, ugly and clean looking respectively) I think both of these models give about 300 watts pc into 8ohms but are fan cooled and may be noisy. If so, perhaps I can put them in the adjoining bathroom and run longer cables. At the audiophile end there is a McIntosh MC 162 for R$4.8k which gives 100w into 8ohms. Also a Krell KST-100 for 4.8k which gives 100w into 8ohms and a Emotiva XPA-2 which gives 300w pc for 2.7k. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!
