I have been with the GTAA since the very early days when there was only 5 members. I believe this was back in 2006. However, we have been having informal gatherings and “hostings” since 2004, so I am proud to say that I am one of the earliest member of the GTAA.
My system has evolved over the years, but the Piega C8 Ltd I have kept since 2005. The amps changed from Granite Audio 860 Monoblocks to the Manley 250s. I believe the system maintains the dynamics of a Push Pull high power tube amps system, but when I want to enjoy a more relaxed sound, the amps can operate rate in Triode mode which reduces output from 250 to 100 watts.
The Coaxial tweeter and Mid-range is a proprietary hand made design by Piega of Switzerland. It seamlessly blends itself with the VIFA 8″ woofers without frequency coherence issues found with many ribbon speakers.
