    FREE Advice required re 1st valve amp purchase

    Unison research S6 would be a good choice, I have the Simply 4 (slightly less power) but it is a superb piece of kit.

    I changed to a sony 55" 4k last year, and the picture quality is amazing.

    Does sound really matter?

    I have numerous vintage/retro items of hi-fi, like many here I am sure. I like to play them occasionally, just for the hell of it. I am always surprised at how good they still sound, especially speakers of yesteryear. I have, in no particular order Trio KA 2000 amp and matching tuner Sugden P51 power amp and C51 Pre amp (ugly as hell) Pioneer A400 integrated Rotel 402 integrated (a lovely looking thing ) KEF ref 104 and stands. Tannoy Cheviots Pioneer PL12D TT Denon DP 2000 DD TT there is more, but at my age …………..well you know

    Pre-amp for newly acquired ATC SCM40A's

    So it has nothing to do with sound then, just more area !

    Pre-amp for newly acquired ATC SCM40A's

    It will be easy for him, he knows there is a difference, and I quote (which I know exist).

    Pre-amp for newly acquired ATC SCM40A's

    I'm sure you will be more than satisfied with it. I use a passive pre with my active setup, nothing as fancy as that MF you have just bought :), just an alps pot in a box, although it does have silver wire ,in Teflon(no less!) connecting every thing up. As you have said, it adds nothing to the signal, and to these ears sounds great.

    Which Decade

    For me the best music was mid 60's to mid 70's, but unfortunately some of the recordings were poor. Modern day equipment, when used properly, produces some of the best recordings I have heard to date, but of course you have the loudness wars, with popular music, and those are dire.

    ProAc D30RS v Q Acoustics Concept 500 and Valves

    Buy small and detached then, a winner all round, as it will more than likely be cheaper
