    Wanted - A valve Power Amplifier

    Dont worry mate, the comment was meant to make you laugh rather than sell your amp! Yeah, be interesting to see what comes up. Like I say, no mad rush.
  3. Very happy with my crayon audio integrated but I’ve bought a Gordon Welford preamp for a play, and it’s clearly pretty special, so I’d like to hear a good valve power amp with it. High power SET would be ideal, silver facia essential, something like Ian’s triode corp 845 but smaller, as at 460 x 440 that’s too big for the top of my cabinet. I’m thinking Art Audio (Are you reading Brook, come on mate time you had a change ), EAR, line Magnetic, that kind of thing. It’ll need to be 15w min I think, as my old 300b didn’t quite do the business with the XL horns. No mad rush, I’d like to get this purchase right, so bear with me if I appear picky.

    Good to hear you’re well mate! All good here thanks, still with the XLs, they suit us really well at the moment as we’ve now got a little boy, Leo, and I’m much happier with the idea of him pulling himself up on those than my old Odeons or some other multi £k speaker! I don’t miss the Rigolettos too much tbh, wonderful treble but the bass was too heavy for my room and they had that slightly recessed midrange. Running the horns with either an LFD zero 3 or a crayon cfa-1 integrated. Just bought Rabskis old Gordon Welford pre for a play so need a power amp to do that justice really. Source wise I have a child friendly TT (sl10) and finally found a good lampi dac At a price I could justify, so job done for digital. Interested to see what you end up with mate! I’ll keep an eye out for anything tasty.

    Alright Ron? Mate, the XL horns look amazing! Last I saw them you’d veneered them. Is this the same pair? Professional spray job I’m guessing, might have to get mine done! Hope you’re well mate.

    Marantz PM4

    I’ve had a fair old change around this year, and this amplifier, whilst superb, isn’t getting the use it deserves. Price is fair and firm and exclude postage. I’d much rather buyers organised their own courier as you can then choose the provider and level of insurance you’d like. Rest assured the amp will be expertly packed and double boxed. The classic, in excellent condition. Recapped, new speaker posts, a couple of very minor marks but a lovely, lovely example. 240v but European unit, so Euro plug. Adaptor will be included. £500. Low ballers will be politely ignored.
  10. It is that. I should keep it really and put it away for another day but I’m pretty amp heavy at the mo and I have so much less time to listen now we have a son.

Silver, with silver facia and knobs. Has the excellent integrated Phono stage, currently configured for MM but can be switched to MC. Great order, a couple of minor marks and a dint underneath. http://lfd4u.com/2016/11/01/lfd-audio-their-zero-le-mk3-both-versions-revisited/ https://cheaptubeaudio.blogspot.com/2011/08/review-lfd-zero-integrated-mk-iii-le.html?m=1 £950.

    I have a SL10 and a good few cartridges. Top of the tree is the legendary technics EPC-310mc but they’re expensive now, and I actually find myself listening to a Shure M110he more often. It’s a wonderfully dynamic, musical sound. If you’re keen to buy new you could do a lot worse that the Ortofon OMP series. I’d jump in at the 30 or 40 level if you can justify it, as they’re markedly better than the 10 or 20.

    I was going to suggest technics SL7 or SL10, better SQ than the 5 and so good to use
