I finally remembered the TLs: it was TDL, an English company. I had a pair of their speakers promising f3 17Hz!! Not that I had much content so low :)

QUOTE="christoph, post: 658707, member: 7611"]What amps did you try?
I had excellent results with Lamm M1.1 hybrids :cool: [/QUOTE]

I used Krell ksa 100 (An old, discontinued class A amp). I wanted to listen at concert levels :eek: , regardless of the fact that the poor Scintillas couldn't do 120dB anyway! I ended up blowing fuses on the Krell and having to replace components on the speakers :oops: -- but, what fun!
Plus I was the cool kid:cool:!

I guess you Krell KSA 100 must have been faulty and took out your Scinnies in the process :eek:

My completely overhauled ex-Krell KSA 100 MK2 still drives my ex-Scinnies to abnormous volume levels at a friend of mine :cool:
The Lamm M 1.1 hybrid monos sound quite a bit better but there is definitely no lack of volume level with the Krell ;)

Interesting! My KSA's probably needed recapping, who knows. Someone actually still uses them, I hear (from the dealer), but listens to chamber & acoustic music.

Oh I forgot.
Your Symphonic Line Kraft would have probably sounded great with your Scinnies :D
