Wondering if anyone has any experience of the S400 with the XS2 Amplifier. I got the amp 3 months ago and have been really impressed. Now looking to upgrade from Monitor Audio Bronze. Interested in matching and power thoughts and views.
What is/are your source(s)?
I don’t know these Buchardt speakers, but they look quite interesting, albeit with a nominal 4 ohm load, I’d be wary of their minimum impedance.
I’m waiting for Buchardt to produce passive floorstanders, they would be tempting.
I currently use MA Bronze floorstanders with my XS3 and they are fantastic, ive resisted upgrading because I’m concerned I won’t get that sound again.
Should I just keep them?
The S400 look nice.
Sources are a Lindeman Limetree Network and a Shinola x VPI Turntable. The system sounds great but feel I need speakers that better match the rest.
I have a newly purchased XS2 with ATC SCM 11 speakers which although low sensitivity 84 db/ 1watt at 1 metre are an easy load as their impedance hardly drops below 6 ohms. They sound amazing on HiFi rack stands with a very fast sound with punchy base and a great top end. Absolutely delighted with them and the have a 5 year warranty.
In my second system i have CDX2 Nait XS (original)+ HC-DR into S400. The amp is very well uup to the job. The S400 are pretty much an easy load.
thats really helpful thanks Roberto
Probably worth saying that Buchardt S400 and Naim Ovator S400 are different speakers.
