    4311Bs - amplifiers

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie and just got some 4311Bs which sound really good. I was wondering what amplifiers would have driven these in the studios, and what others use/recommend now.

    Thanks

    Anything would drive them. Something that is 100 watts . More power that they are rated for is better than less! With 4311's "Screw moderation"!

    My brother has my old pair of 4311b and he's useing a YAmaha MX-1000 (260x2) and the amp sounds very nice matched with the JBL.

    A good chance they were Crown D-series; D150 and DC300

    Under $200 for nearly any of the above if you find a deal.


    Obviously more power is better but back then most JBL fans were powering their L100s quite nicely with 40-watt JBL integrated amps.

    All my JBL's are driven by 80's vintage Yamaha amps. Smooth and warm sounding as far as SS amps go. I think for home use, you would have found many run by Marantz, Sansui, Yamaha in the mid-fi SS variety, McIntosh if you had the bucks. I'm not a tube guy, but that's always a suggested option.
