  1. Swiss engineering at its vintage best . sound quality is excellent build quality is stunning
  2. With much regret, have decided to part with my Croft set-up owing to downsizing and the move to an integrated. The amps, which are in immaculate condition, comprise a 25R line-only pre-amp, and two 7R mono power amps. They have not been used very intensively, and come from a no-smoking, pet and child-free house. They are nearly 4 years old, and were purchased from Divine Audio (25R £1,000, 7R monos £2,800 the pair). See https://www.divineaudio.co.uk/product/croft-acoustics-series-7r-mono-power-amplifiers-pair/. They were recently serviced and upgraded by Glenn Croft with upgraded transformers and valves; original and other valves available. (As you may know, Glenn is a real gent and very helpful on advice, upgrades, etc. – contactable via email – see the Croft website: http://www.croftacoustics.co.uk/products.html He builds all his amplifiers personally by hand – no PCBs but point-to-point soldering, top-notch components, a purist approach to amplification: truly a case of ‘less is more’. Single volume controls and remote controls can be retro-fitted via Audioflair https://audioflair.co.uk/category/croft/ As can a phono stage to the 25R, or the separate Croft phono amp (both incredible value) can be used in conjunction with the 25R. Most Croft aficionados prefer the twin volume pots which provide more control with less complication. The R versions have upgraded components and regulated power supplies; the quality of the connectors for example is superb. These amplifiers are sonically the best I’ve owned: the 25R is a wonderful pre-amp which I used originally with the 7R stereo power which was very impressive, then upgraded to the top-of-the-range 7R monos which produced an even wider, deeper soundstage, phenomenal detail without losing the wonderful fluid, organic mesmerising musicality associated with Croft. They seem very powerful with great grip and control, and have driven any speaker I have used with them with ease. They all have original packaging. Four the three amplifiers I’m asking £2,350, or separately for the 7R monos £1,750 and for the 25R £750. Collection (and audition) in Liverpool, or can arrange courier etc at cost. May be able to deliver or meet within reasonable distance. Plenty regarding Croft on forums such as Art of Sound or PFM as well as some good threads on the WAM. There is also a very interesting review of the basic Croft integrated on Stereophile - which I have in a second system - and it is as good as the review says, but the 25R/7R combination is on another level as you'd expect.

  3. A house move means my Boulder, Titan, Revel Salon system is going to be relegated to the TV room, so of course it doesn't warrant keeping. Only c.20 amplifiers ever made they are a collectors piece, I haven't seen a set for sale before. I bought the amps power amps c.5 years ago as an open box but never played. They wiped the floor with the Boulder power amps I had at the time. One of the quietest power amps ever made, you won't hear a better power amp below £50-£60k, and even above this price point the amps I have auditioned were different rather than better.They are immaculate in every way, without any scratches, scores or dents. The only issue is that the rear two mesh grills (on both amps) have discoloured from the sunlight (they have gone to a colour between black and brass). Taking the lid off, popping them out and some matt black spray would easily sort this but I don't want to open them up. They come with all original packaging, boxes, paperwork etc. £8500 including shipping but I will have a look at reasonable offers. I would also a swap for a valve preamp of similar cost and quality for my valve system.....WHY?
