Gallo's ref. 3 suitable Amp's

Hi All,

I have a pair of Gallo's ref. III and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a suitable matching pre-power amp to go with them. Unfortunately I found out that my old B&K is not powerful enough and have damaged the speakers.. not wanting to take any chances I seek for advise from those of you who have some to offer.

I was offered the Cambridge Audio 840 pre-power combination. Any opinions on how well this would match the speakers? (not had a chance to listen to this system yeat as I'm waiting for my speakers to be fixed first... I am interested in music, not Home Theater. many thanks for your help,

Sergio

It might be useful to put a price range.I am using mine with an Arcam unit without any problems, though they would probably have liked more power.

The price range is up to 3000 USD... Can you tell me which Arcam amp you are using? There's not that many brands available here in Dubai, but Arcam is, so I could check it out... Thanks. Sergio

First do you have the Reference 3 S.A. Subwoofer Amplifier? This $650 addition can relieve the ultimate power amp of a lot of duty.

Listen to those in your price range at Dubai Audio Center. They have Arcam, Linn, and Naim.
