    So have speakers really got that much better?

    Having spent quite some time listening to Steve's system at kegworth, where in my humble opinion, it was the star of the show, i'm happy to believe almost anything he says.

    great show!

    Evening All, Thanks to everyone for a very enjoyable weekend. I wasn't exhibiting, mainly because i knew there wouldn't be room in the car for my kit - i picked up an SP10, some motorcycle wheels and tyres, a chopped split screen morris minor cab & panels on the way there, and a pre-amp and power amp were delivered on the Sunday ! Thanks to all the exhibitors, two stand-outs for me: TonyJ's £1000 system was almost unmatchable at the price point. Steve57 system was (IMO) best of show & one of the best i've ever heard, that speaker and amp combination just played everything thrown at it with aplomb...glorious. Colin - thanks for organising the curry on Sunday night, a good time had by all. As an added bonus i got to hear the best Croft pre-amp i've ever heard on the way home. Same again next year...

    Class A SET amp/ speaker match question

    I auditioned it when it was £800 more than you paid for it, and was very tempted to pull the trigger. You've made a very good choice, 845 set integrated amps don't get much better than this, I've since bought the earlier version (bigger transformers), you might never need to change your amplifier again - hopefully you won't need to move it about too much !

    Class A SET amp/ speaker match question

    Hi Nick, i've had several 845 set amps - couple of Line Magnetics, Transcription Audio, and Mastersound integrated & they have all driven any speakers I have had to loud listening levels. I feel any of them would drive almost any load well.
