Dear TS Forum

I am interested in the potential of the Son of Beast OTL in my system which has a very wonderful pair of QUAD 57s in it. Has anyone on the forum got any any experience of how the amp matches with the speakers. I am really interested in the potential of the OTL amp in terms of transmitting the emotional impact of the music and the musicians and so would be really interested if anyone has any thoughts on whether it would be a match made in heaven or hell.

Hello David,

I used to drive my ESL57's with the stereo 20wpc T8 (EL509 version), and Bruce's amp had no problem.  T8 and SOB are not identical, but hope this bit helps you.

Thanks for the information. Any feedback on how they sounded would be great. Potentially I think they should sound pretty fantastic.

David,

In my experience, the Transcendent OTL and Quad ESL combination sound right.  The ESL's lowest 2 ohm impedence in the treble didn't bother Bruce's amps.  When the ESLs are properly position in the room and are fully charged, the system can project a holographic image.  I don't have golden ears or vast vocabuary; they just sound right, and I don't feel bad about it.
