Post Subject: Dima’s Amp: the first blood.Posted by Romy the Cat on: 5/23/2005

Alex, I do not remember already the volume of those boxes, what is the deference? Thos drivers have an average sealed Qs and Fs I believe 19Hz, you might easy to circulate any volume you want. I slightly overdamped them, as usually, form where they should be…

Anyhow, I took the DimAmp today for a first time to walk out of my home. I stoped at a local friend of mine and let the amp to drive Kharma Ceramique 3.2 loudspeakers. The speakers have sub 90dB sensitively and power handling slightly less then 5W. This Kharma are king of solid-state sounding with typically aggressive Focal tweeter that was specially designed to whistle the brains out of the reviewers heads. With all imperfections the Kharma 3.2 are the best Kharma loudspeakers and I was interested how the DimAmp would be able to deal with them. Certainly those loudspeakers are very much from faultlessness but what do you want form a high-end product that cost juts $25.000?

To my surprise it was not bad. I mean I am looking at the time I spent listening all of it and I can’t recall the negative effect that I would typically attributed to amplifiers. Certainly the Kharma 3.2 is not a real loudspeaker in obsolete trims and they, while were driven by DimAmp, were the weakest element of that installation… However the one step at time. The DimAmp had swallowed the Kharma 3.2 easy and without even chewing. Now I need a serious contestant to drive… the prospective candidates are shaping up already… 

Meanwhile the amp is driving my woofer towers…

BTW, I think Dima has a Real name for his amp. I hope he would show up in here and would let us know it… The good thing should be referred by own name… It really deserves it.
