I've got a pair of Martin Logan Aerius speakers that I want to drive with a few Marantz vintage amps. I'm currently driving them with a 300DC from a 7t listening to vinyl and open reel tape. It all sounds great, but I've always wanted to drive them with tubes. I bought a working 8b that's on its way to me and I'm eyeing a second that's not working. Let's say I buy it and get it working. That's a lot of amps with lots of possible wats to drive the ML's. 1. Try to get the two 8b's sounding the same and run them as monoblocks... maybe in triode mode? 2. Use both 8b's in stereo and bi amp the ML's. my thinking here is that they are not a matched set, so use one amp in stereo to drive the panels and the second in stereo to drive the 8" woofers. Again, maybe in triode mode. 3. Bring in the 300DC into the mix. Both 8b's as monoblocks driving just the panels and the 300DC driving the woofers. Triode? 4. The 8b's are unmatched, so just use one 8b in stereo fro the panels and the 300DC for the woofers 5. Get rid of those ML's and get a pair of... Here's the specs fro the ML's: https://www.martinlogan.com/products/aerius Love to hear the everyone's thoughts... Thanks!
