Stereo amplifier for DALI Opticon 6

Hi all,

I joined this forum because I need advices for choosing an stereo amplifier for my pair of DALI Opticon 6.
What I want from the association with the new stereo amplifier is: to have a warm sound, to HAVE the same details of sound at lower volume and to have HT-bypass.

My room have about 100 square feet, about 250 cubic feet, the room is not treated acoustically, and for now I do not have much furniture in the room, I mean I have a body about 80x40(Lxh), some tables, a body for TV and the rest of the system and 2 couches. Most of time the volume level for listening will be low, like in sourdine but like I said I want same details of sound like at higher volume level.

Thank you all in advance and I can't wait yours advices!

Best regards,
George.

I know nothing about the Dali Opticon

I am not familiar with Dali Opticon six and am not sure about your budget or the sound profile you like. That is an easy speaker to drive in a small space so you don't need a lot of power. But without knowing a bit more it is tough to make a recco. Do you want something warm, neutral or forward? What is the sound profile of the speaker? We can name tons of integrated amps with HT bypass but would like to zero in on one you will like.

Hi and thank you for

Hi and thank you for answering me. I want a warm sound, well the profile sound, i find is between bright and neutral. Here i thought are a good review about sound profile:
"The sound in this part of the range can be characterized as balanced and filigree-detailed. Mid frequencies are smooth and quiet and attaches to a long listening. Speaking about bass, it should be considered as adequate and sufficient. At placing the speaker systems at some distance from walls of a room the attack and intelligibility of bass guitar and double bass do not cause any claims. Surely, DALI Opticon 6 can harder create really serious level of sound pressure of great organ, but they sound the available part of the range very and very good. I especially want to note the ability of the system to form a convincing three-dimensional sound space, where parties of each instrument take their own places."

I recommend the Musical Fidelity M6si; it is excellent, and amazing for only $2999. It even has an HT Bypass, which is unusual in high-quality amplifiers.

If you want to warm your sound

You don't need a ton of power and you want a warmer sound while the speakers you have are neutral to bright you may want to consider a tube based integrated amp. Check out PrimaLuna or Mystere. Both have dealer finders and see if you can find a dealer near you. PrimLuna is not available New for sale on the web. You may find a web based Mystere dealer. You will want to pick a model that fits your budget and will deliver 40-50w of power.

Something like the PrimaLuna Prologue Premium for $2399 might work nicely.

I have no POV

I have no POV on either of those units. Never heard them and have no idea. They both get great reviews.

So my friends, I'M IN HEAVEN!

So my friends, I'M IN HEAVEN! I am really as happy as I can not even describe! I just installed the Lyngdorf TDAI-2170 with my Opticon 6. This is something incredible. It's like night-day the difference. I'm really excited :) The first piece was Pink Floyd - Hey you, when I heard the drummer, I felt like he was in front of me! I'm glad i spend so much money, I'm really are. People who will have the possibility to "hear" this amp will understand. I'll tell you more next time, I go listen music now, cause it's really a pleasure now:)
I'm happy cause i find the answer between AVR and a integrate amp!

Have a nice week-end all!
