    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!

    How good is that Beard combo?

    I didn't check the photos with it's hat on, certainly makes it look a bit better

    Reliable?

    Easy maintained?

    Better than the WAD EL84?

    I've been listening to Tony's Promitheus TVC and WAD with my Kraftwerk Boxset on Vinyl and I doubt I've listened to better here.

    I might just save my money and buy that combo and get the volume on the TVC tweaked so it's more controllable and not so loud at 1

    I'm sitting in the main part of the living room looking directly at the HiFi about 9m away and I can't believe how good it all sounds

    Having lived for a week with the Audio Research Ref 75 I cannot praise it highly enough, particularly with my Tannoys. It is simply superb and end of game. If an amp and speakers can make love to each other then it's this pairing - and their offspring is marvellous.

    My mate had the P35 for some years. It's powerful enough for use with Tannoys and sounded as good as any other EL84 amp I've heard. It was eventually replaced with an EAR 861, but that's a different ball game (and a lot costlier).

    I don't know the input sensitivity on it though, it could be a bit more forgiving with the Promitheus than the WAD.
