Silver-7t's or 9t's are the way to go.

Re: need advice on amps to drive AL IV platinum

OK I half to ask! I have had every Carver amp made but never a 7 or 9t and Sunfire's blow them away -all the older Carver amp's 1.0, M-500t, 1.5t, etc. Not in power but in sound will the 7 & 9t sound better then Sunfire 5x200 5x405 ??? My Platinums just rocked bi-amp to my Sunfire 5x405 (CAN 7 or 9t's MATCH THAT IN SOUND?) Not that I care cause I am going all tube and hopefully a cherry 180 but I just wanted to know what I have missed...
