    Default Amp for lsi9

    Do you think a Mark Levinson 29 would be enough to power 1 pair of lsi9's? It is 100 watts into 4 ohms but is stable to 2 ohms?

    Anything 2 ohm stable should work just fine.

    I would hope anything with the Levinson name (and price) would do justice to the Lsi9s. . . regardless of if they met Cathy's 200wpc benchmark or not :)

    Go for it!

    Ummmm......yes. Levinson is outstanding gear. When you are at that level of gear you have no worries.

    The Pass Labs Aleph30 is 30 wpc and I will have no problem running my SDA's with that.

    Check out Carver Sunfire. I run my whole HT with a Cinema Grand Sig. 7 & its rated (on paper) at 800wpc @ 4ohms. Trust me it was the best money I have ever spent (well other then my SVS sub + Velodyne SMS-1 :) ) hehehehehe. If you just want a 2 channel amp check out their Sunfire Signature 600~two. its rated at 600wpc@ 8ohms, 1200wpc @ 4ohms and a time limited basis 4,000 wpc @1ohm rms per channel! Wooohooo. Plus the good thing is you can find these models on eBay and audiogon all the time for a good price. The good thing with sunfire is that even if that items warranty has ran out they will fix it no-matter what is wrong with it for only $450.00 Current Electronics (amplifiers, processors, receivers, preamps). I'm my mind, is cheap considering my amp new would have cost around $4500 and I got the deal of the day from a dealer that was no longer selling sunfire stuff for only $1900 with tax (and it was new).
    So there are deals out there you just have to look and be patient. I waited 6 years before I found the right deal and when I got that thing hooked up, My jaw hit the floor on how much more my LSi9's stood out.

    Default good amp. to polk lsi9

    my polkaudio LSI9 sound very good,very very good indeed with my 100wpc ROTEL RA1070 integrated amp. the flagship rotel 10 series has a lot of power and clearaty. the lsi9 needs a powerfull amp.
    must to remember the breaking-in time(at least 160 hr.)of the lsi9.
    there is no question a bout the rule of the lsi9,superb speaker.
