    Rainbow Germaniums

    i say

    ArcAudio 2500-XXK 270x2 @4 ohms
    or
    Zapco 750.2 150x2 @4 ohms
    or
    Focal FP2.150
    or
    Mmats SQ-2175

    in my opinion, if you spend $450+ on speakers get some quality amp $450+
    Amps with
    High S/N Ratio
    Low Distortion
    High Efficiency
    among other stuff

    Re: Rainbow Germaniums

    2nd'd blackmaxima's sentiments...i would add the arc audio 4150xxk to that list - you can bridge it to 320x2, or bi-amp those germanium's passive's @ 4x75w... or go active later on that same power. I love my 4150 to death. My previous amp was an Eclipse EA3422 (very clean sound) which was rated by them @ 2x140 but i suspect was more like 2x120...i wasn't happy with it though it did sound good, didn't quite have the power to push the woofers to the volumes i wanted - though the tweets get plenty loud on less than that of course .

    the 4150xxk is another good amp, you have the option to bi-amp 4x80w or 160x2 @4 ohms i think. not sure. too lazy to check the arc website lol
