Indeed. Just a quick question to those using their Proprius without a preamplifier. Where do you usually put the dial for a comfortable still fun listening volume? With the ESL-57s it's usually resting between 9-10 o'clock , just curious if this setting is low compared to most other types of speakers?

Just about normal to me. Sort of depends on room size though.

Usually somewhere between 9 and 10 for me too from the fixed output of my Accession. Good to know that they work well with ESL57s. I've long fancied trying electrostatics since a friend of mine found a pair of bronze coloured "radiators" in a skip many years ago. In good nick too and sounded great.

Graham, would I be able to run a Proprius pair from a car battery? Embarrassed 

I need to learn to drive and when I do, I'm going to want excellent car audio... Wink

4 car batteries wired in series, but don't short the amp outputs because the "power supply" won't "crowbar", and then you'll have to buy new fuses... Wink
