    Always alternatives to cause problems! What's your current amp? I've had a couple of pairs of Dynaudios in the past, Contour 1.3 and the 1.8 Mk 2. Lovely speakers and although 4 ohm that's pretty flat so no trouble driving them. My brother's still got a pair of 1.8's and we hitched the Leema up to them a while back - sounded very good indeed.

    Shame you're so far away, not really practical to pop round for a try!

    Thanks Grant, hmmm, think I've noticed that before too.

    Hi ian, it's a Pulse (funnily enough) SRA-160USB which is a Quad clone I believe, cheap thing but it's fine, comes with a decent remote and does drive the speakers however I listen at really low volumes.

    Alan Shaw recommends my amp, along with a cheap Pioneer integrated, for his Harbeth speakers which is why I bought it SH from a mate of mine.

    I've recently been trying several outboard phono stages - they all required tweaking up the amp volume so I don't think it's just in built stages that have less output than other sources such as CD

    I'm torn between buying a really good integrated amp (with phono stage) which I think the speakers need cause they are superb speakers or staying with the current amp and buying a standalone MM phono pre-amp for the turntable which I rarely use.
    this is a fabulous amp and if i had not just bought something else i would buy it . i had this model used with dynaudio 52se and it had a lovely organic sound . highly recommended and any issues leema will sort out . i never had any issues at all with my mark 1

    Thanks Phil, I too have had no problems with this amp. What did you buy instead?

    Thanks, that's very helpful, I've not read a bad review on these amps, I'll give it some thought guys.

    Tony.

    Just to be clear on the 500 asking price. If anyone wants to collect I will obviously knock off the p&p costs so it will be 475. If you want to meet somewhere then I'm happy to travel up to 50 miles from Stroud Glos for 12p a mile. So a return trip of 100 miles would be 12.

    Cheers, Ian

    I'm keen to sell this as I need to pay for a new phono stage so the price is reduced to 450 collected. Add 25 for insured delivery to UK mainland addresses.
