Well its nearly been 20 years since i first got into this bloody stuff but i finally got the speakers i wanted in the first place but couldnt afford.
Found some 2a's on ebay and the guy only lived 30 mins from me.
Got them home and did some interesting back to back with my mon 12's.
The 12's are a great speaker i dicovered. I stuffed around for a couple of hours trying different set ups and the 2a's have great sound stage but the 12's have a fuller sound. The 2a's are more musical but the 12's have more grunt.
I was very surprised. I thought the SDA's would blow the 12's away but they hold their own very well.
I suspect when i get some more wpc behind them ( the luxman only 70wpc ) i may see a greater difference.
I am bringing home a new Quad 99/909 pre/power combo home to try tomorrow (140 wpc into 8) so that may stir things a bit.
Will report. Will put up photos.
For now though at least i can say i've got some SDA's at last!:)
