    Paul,

    Yes I know, and so do I: it was a nice little budget amp that sounded a lot better than one would expect from price and provenance.

    I just don't think it was better than the Sugden A21. I had the use of both of them, so am not just saying this without experience.

    Regards

    PS In searching on Google for this amp, I came across a site where someone ran a pair of Quad 57s with a Teleton SAQ206B! Amazing.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    My mate's first HiFi - Garrard SP25 III/G800H, Teleton GA202 and Audiomaster speakers with twin-cone drivers. great playing Sparks in the 6th Form Common Room.

    His next system? Techie SL-120/SME II fixed shell/XLMII or V15III, Radford ZD22 pre/Crown D-60 and Spendor BC2's given to him by his Dad.

    I know the speakers rather well and also have his Dads Crowns.....

    Oh was it you? Goes to show what a good (stable) design the SAQ-206B was.

    Still don't believe it was better than the Sugden class A designs though.

    I never like the 'A21' either.I don't like Class 'A' probably why i'm not a fan of the Quad 405

    The old 405 suffers a bit of crossover distortion, so I suspect the class A driver stage wasn't quite everything Quad needed it to be. The mk2 was much better and the amp doesn't sound thick and squishy as Sugden make some of their amps to be.

    My Sugden C51/A21 combination (no, that's not a misprint of A51 - long story) never sounded "thick and squishy". Neither did the C51/A51 combination.

    I just like class A, rather than AB1, AB2, or any other biasing arrangement for push-pull.
