    Greetings,

    This is my first post and I’m looking for some help. I currently have a pair of Dali Epicon 8 speakers, driven by a Luxman 509x integrated amplifier. They sound glorious. I sold my Quad 2805 speakers prior to the purchase and I’m missing the electrostatic sound. Before the Quads and years ago I had Martin Logan Monolith, ML CLX and more years ago than that I had Magnapan.

    Here’s my question; Would the Luxman 509x be of sufficient power to run the Sound Labs? I’m considering the A3-PX

    Thanks in advance,

    Bob

    Bob,

    Depending on your room size, distance from the speaker, and desired sound level, I wouldn’t think the Luxman would work in all but the smallest room.

    This is especially true with the A3 as the smaller panels are less efficient.

    Also, the panels go up in impedance with lower notes, meaning they can be up in the 30 ohm range. That would mean something like the Luxman would only be putting out 30 watts depending on the material.

    For solid state you need like 300 + watts. More is better.
