Has anyone used Klipsch Heresy III loudspeakers with an Icon Audio Stereo 20 PP? (Or similar, not too expensive, 15 - 20 Watt per channel valve amp with 'bog standard' valves.)
Trying to get head around a 1950s vintage system, comfortably under £2K, without buying actual 1950s equipment (with all that entails including bidding against crazy far-eastern collectors with bottomless budgets).
Klipsch Heresy IIIs are rated at 99dB sensitivity for 1 Watt @ 1 metre I assume that 15 Watts per channel (from the Stereo 20 PP*) will be ok at the moderate volumes I enjoy.
All alternative ideas welcome so long as they don't exceed the total price of the kit listed above**, have claim to some genuine 1950s 'DNA' in their design, and can be bought without any hassle, brand-new, in the UK either direct or from a reputable dealer. (Proper guarantees and support in other words.)
* 'PP' in this instance is part of Icon Audio's nomenclature and not a reference to polymer simulacrums of any fish eating, flightless birds found in the Southern hemisphere.
** £999 and £699
