    .... and I'd take the el84 power valves in the Leak over el34 any day of the week! A true musical all rounder.

    That's one big amp. I can't find the model but there is always tweakery

    The Leak is a very good amp.

    There is of course one amp that stands out as a very likely candidate for driving the Pioneer speakers, but it's not valves. The Sugden A21a!

    That would be a very difficult toss up for me, choosing between the Sugden and the Leak.

    I'd be tempted - but only if he throws in the bananas.😁

    It is a very big amp alan. Ill see if I can find a schematic or something for you to peruse.

    We spoke about the Sugden previously didnt we Geoff. That one on Gumtree has either gone or been removed.

    Yup. At the moment, although I love my valves, I just find Class A solid state hitting the spot (mind you the little Quad 306 that arrived the other week is a goodie ).

    Shame I've got to get my SM-70 Pro fixed. Cheapo rectifier has shorted I reckon. Can't afford to do it at the moment.

    There's a lot of choice Geoff. Im thinking its better to buy something you've heard too. Firebottle amps are exquisite so they are first choice, next is the MingDa, then a sugden type. Have to see what comes up.

    That's obviously a good idea. Buying an amp you've used in your own system and liked is a logical move.
