I'm a french owner of a pair of JBL EVEREST DD55000.
I'm driving my DD5000 since 3 years now with a tube amp, Mcintosh MC225 with good pleasure until now. Nevertheless, some JBL french addicts are claiming that I could achieve better results with solid state amps (good quality ones!). I made several tries in the past with Mc (such as MC2255, 7270) but also Onkyo M577 or Parasound 2200 mkII but I always came back to the MC225 as for the great mid and highs, the breathability and the scene.
I need to admit that I would sometimes appreciate to get stronger and better filled bass/medium but don"t want to loose the quality of the highs coming from the 225.
Some suggested Krell KSA... but prices and warmth are making me relunctant.
My room is a dedicated one with only 16 sq/m.
Any ideas, suggestions and experiences would help me a lot.
