Avantgarde Duo 2.2 Amplifier Match.
I not only vote for the Audiopax synergy with these speakers but the cable will make a big difference too(I'm still fiddling with the Timbrelock feature, but leave that out of the equation for now). I was using some Van de hul Revelation Hybrid fr... 
Amp advice for Avantegarde HELP
Just got my Duos set up this weekend, with the Audiopax 88's.Right out of the box, even without all the proper cords and cables yet, the combo is amazing. Remember, I am used to Quads, so I also come from the electrostat school- but despite the ab... 
Who deals Sugden?
Not to be contrary, but here's an excerpt from the online ordering facility at Stanalog:"Our products are available through a very limited number of specialist audio retailers. All of our products may also be ordered directly online and can be shi... 
Who deals Sugden?
Stanalog via the web. He is the importer, and sells direct. I have known George Stanwick since the mid 80's and he is a good guy. 
Amp advice for Avantegarde HELP
Chris: At this stage, I have 0 advice but instead, a question.I am moving in a similar direction to you- from Crosby-Quads and ARC tube electronics to an Avantgarde Duo with Audiopax Monoblock tube amplifiers. (I understand that these are quite a ... 
Quad Listener Contemplating Horns

Yep, I've thought about bigger panels, but that isn't necessarily cost-effective either, is it?I remember years ago listening to a Monster-sized Martin Logan, playing through big Jadis tube amps, at a shop on the Il St. Louis. The image was dispro...

Albert- I will reach out to Fred. Thanks for the tip. Your system doesn't look to shabby either.There is obviously a point of diminishing returns with all this stuff- I guess I lost interest 9 or so years ago, and that wasn't the first time I was ... 
Adapting Oversized Spades W/o Reterminating
Hear ya. Using the 4ohm taps off the Classic 60, and the Quads don't give me more than an 1/8 in. clearance between the spades either- (already stuck some electrical tape between the contacts on the speakers for just that reason).So, I'm digging o... 
Adapting Oversized Spades W/o Reterminating
Bingo! Thank you both. You made me feel less dumb for asking by your answers. I'm sure i'll be frequenting this place more- is there a general chat section that is not specific to one type of equipment, where the hardcore types here hang out?
