Hello all, I'm one of a number of QLS 1 speaker owners here, and a very happy one. I picked mine up last summer, they needed very little work and have easily become my favourite speaker. I have been powering them with a single, restored, McIntosh 2205. The amp handles the speakers fine, and never gets warm, even with extended sessions of pushing it. Man can these big speakers really fill a big house when pushed, the music is everywhere. My original thoughts where that I would get a second 2205 at some point and try bi-amping them or use the amps as two 400 watt mono blocks, depending on which I liked better. But prices, and lack of a decent 2205 in my area are making consider other options. My 2205 is very sellable, restored, excellent condition, with the slant leg cabinet. I'm looking at a single McIntosh 2300, or a 2500. Though the 2500 would stretch the budget. A Mark Levinson No. 23 And wondering how a 70 WPC Conrad Johnson 11A tube amp would work with the QLS's Any thoughts or experiences with these speakers, or other amp suggestions that have surprised would be appreciated. Also, I'm in Canada, and have yet to find another Canadian with QLS 1's. I wonder how many pairs made it North?
