    Hi all

    Just acquired a pair of the about speakers and loving them hooked upto my Rega Elex R. I am gradually attempting to move up the hifi chain with my components so looking for a new amp that would make the most out of the speakers. The Triangles are not a sensitive as other at 88db.

    Currently on my shortlist is
    Audio Analogue Settanta
    Pathos Logos Hybrid
    Leema Acoustic Tuscana 2

    As the speakser set me back an arm and a leg really looking for something in the used market.
    Anyone had any experience of the Triangles with great amps or the amps themselves.

    Thanks in advance

    My Dad pairs his Duettos with a Jadis 88S which may well be too much money, it's a great amp so maybe you could trial a i35/i50/da50S.
    Sound is airy and smooth and downright lovely! Not the last word in bass but plenty weighty enough considering the speakers themselves aren't going to move mountains. Worth listening to a jadis/triangle combo if poss. Also have heard the Alpha sigs by Triangle with a Unison Research Sinfonia plenty, also brilliant, touch less warm maybe? different speakers though! I can ask my dad what else hes heard (if much) with his duettos (fairly nearfield small terraced living room)

    YBA or AUDIOMAT .... both high-end build and high-end performance French integrated amps

    Your current amp is fine and I doubt any of the mentioned will bring much improvement to the table apart from using more money

    No idea of your source but I would maximize this, along with good mains and a good rack/stands

    Your takeaway from the reviews and audio forum comments:

    (1) Careful System matching -- avoid thin or brash electronics because of the treble prominence

    (2) Tube integrated amps or quality build SS integrated high-end amps suggested ...SS amps featured in the reviews include inter alia, PLINIUS , HEGEL, YBA, ....... tubes say , AUDIOMAT
