    Cor. I'd forgotten how much heat my Monarchy Audio power amp chucks out. I had the windows shut as usual for listening and the amp was on about five hours. The room ended up baking! You could have fried an egg on the amp, it was that hot.

    Changed over to the Quad 306 an hour ago. That's barely warm.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Borrowed a Promitheus TVC pre-amp to try in my system.



    It sounds bloody marvellous driving the Quad 306, a really good match. Not tried it with the Class A or valve power amps yet. That should be interesting.

    Is that the basic model?
