    Why pay postage twice

    Easier to have EAR ship it direct to new owner than send it back to Martin only for him to send it to the new owner

    You got your AR muscle amp yet?
    Yes I got it. I'm in love, and so are the Tannoys. It is perfect synergy and every bit as good as reviews say it is. That's the end of my amp journey.

    Can you clarify why you took it back off the purchaser? Was the amp faulty in any way?

    Yes me too I really don't need it but it's an excellent amp at a great price. I even got the measuring tape out to see if it would fit on top of the bookcase in the study. (Sadly no).

    Now I feel guilty...
    But I hope you can take some solace from knowing that I've wanted an EAR amp for years.

    Well I've had several ... V20, 509 monoblocks, 899 (very similar to the 534 but with an integrated front section like the 8L6, only with balanced option), 861.. and heard a few others in my system including the 534 and 859. My preamp is currently a 912, the best preamp I've come across to date on my travels and a real keeper I believe.

    As for the 8L6 - you'll love it. And fantastic to get it freshly serviced.

    Thanks Tom - I do hope so. And the people at EAR are great too - I got my 834P serviced there last year and they couldn't have been more helpful. I'm hoping to go over to pick it up from them later this week.
