First of all, hello from Iowa.
Back in the day, I remember sitting in the sound room at Audio Labs in Des Moines, IA. This was around 1986-87 (I was still in college) and the sales person was demo-ing the new Polk Audio SDA 2As to me. Wow, I couldn't believe what I was hearing (I could actually still hear pretty good at the time). It was a sound I hadn't heard before from a loud speaker and I was in total bliss as he was playing a little Dark Side of the Moon for me. Needless to say I was hooked, but being a college student, I was dirt poor and couldn't afford the $990 price tag.
Fast forward to this last weekend, as I was doing my usual scour of the CL electronics listings, I came across an ad for some Polk Audio SDAs. The kid had inherited them from his father, and wanted to trade them for some car audio stuff. HEY, I had what he wanted! So I contacted him, told him what I had, he was interested, we set a meet-up time, and I came home with a pair of barely used SDA 2As. These were the natural wood grain, and included the connector cable. I think I scored pretty well.
So now my dilema and question. For those of you with experience in the SDA listening room, what is the ultimate reciever/amp to drive these and do them justice? I plan to purchase something just to drive these alone, and I want to do it right.
