Has anyone used the M125 monoblocks with Acoustat electrostatic speakers?

The later models (2, 2M, 2MH, 3, 4, 1, 1+1, 2+2, 6, 8, 1100, 2200, etc.) were equipped with a more conventional dc supply and transformer interface (Mk-121, Mk-131, etc.). These models require external amplification.
FYI: I got my good results (a while back) with BIG solid state amplifiers from SUMO and G.A.S.

I have a set of Acoustat monitor 3's that plug in just like your brother's BUT they do require amplification. That big box off the back is just an interface for the speaker itself. I have a Hafler 9505 amp that drives my slimlines.
I just searched for SUMO and GAS I had never heard of them. Powerful solid state amps.
I was considering the M125 for these speakers because of wanting to keep the tube sound and as an option.
These speakers require a lot of power.
