Default Bricasti M15 or M25

Hello
Does anyone have experience with the M15 or M25? I am thinking about pairing one with my Bricasti M3 and Aerial 7T speakers.
Thank you.

No direct experience. I do know that Brian (the Bri in Bricasti) uses an M25 in his home as he feels he doesn’t need the extra power from the M28 monos. He says he has a small room.

I suspect all Bricasti amps use a similar topology so your choice is more a budgetary - room/cabinet size one.

In my 12.5 x 17 x 10 foot room, the M25 is a tremendous match with my M1 Limited Gold and YG Acoustic Carmels.

In talking with Brian, the M25 provides as close to having two M28's in one case as you can get.

In my opinion, the M25 is well worth the extra cost above the M15.

Hello
Received my M25 on Tuesday and so far I am very impressed. This was a dealer's demo unit so basically broken in for me. They only thing I find unnatural in the presentation is the bass. It is a bit overwhelming. I had it along with my M3H connected to an Audience AR2P-T4 when first hooked up. Thinking the power supply in the M25 is of such high quality I removed the AR2P-T4 and the bass now seems a little more defined and less in my face.

Anyone else with a Bricasti amp using a power conditioner with it?

Thanks

My M28s are always direct to the wall.

If you don't mind me asking what brand of power cable are you using on the M28s? Thank you.
