    Nice speakers. I tried these and ended with Grand Piano and Concertino from.same range.
    However they do like more power than an el84 can provide. You dont need oodles, but a good quality amp with a decent power supply is needed.
    I cant think of a better amp for these than the matching Sonus Faber Musica and there is a nice one for sale on the Wam being sold by a gent called Julian, who posts as Bigrod. I can vouch he is a good guy to.deal with.

    Original concertos like a bit of power, the home versions are easier to drive but I still don't think 10 watts is enough.

    I tried both 30 watts of EL34 pp and 120 watts of solid state on my concerto homes ( and the following EA2's) and the solid state was definitely better.
    With the extra power the speakers just disappeared giving a huge three dimensional sound stage.

    If I went back to SF's I'd seek out a nice powerful mosfet amp.
