    so had a great time here yesterday with couple of folks from other forums and our own firebottle [alan] who kindly returned my repaired bel canto stuff

    the thrax playing with the tannoy eatons was pretty special , they certainly are a good combo . tremendous bass which was superbly controlled and lovely clarity of instruments . obviously the thrax is pretty esoteric but if you have big pockets its a match made in heaven . of course it can have dac fitted and be a very good one box solution that will eclipse a great many pre power options at double the price . extremely grateful to paul benge of hi fi guy for letting me have the thrax and eatons on demo [ did anyone get to the tannoy show opposite the bristol show ]

    we also used the supernait 2 with them and this was excellent , i really like this amp which is a bit quirky with its decoupled mains lead and its idiosyncrasies but s/h they are good vfm

    i am sure alan may comment further at some point

    The Classic Quad 303 works surprisingly well with Vintage Tannoys and is pretty much a bargain price. The Tannoys are a pretty easy load, so the 303 is fine.

    The proviso is that the 303 is in good serviced condition, otherwise the sound is just OK. It's virtually a bomb proof amp. I am using one all day though Rogers LS3/6 monitors. It seems a waste of energy etc. using, say my Radford STA25 III for hours on end.

    I have used the 303 with Tannoy HPD315's and it worked well. Also, a long time ago I used a 303 with Tannoy 12" Silvers, sadly, don't have them any more.

    The EAR 516 in the classified looks a good bet for tannoys.

    The Thrax (love that name) round at hifinutt towers was something else, it looked very well built.

    The Tannoy Eatons were frankly superb. The image focus was pinpoint, a big from me.

    i was after reducing my boxes with one box , but its just a bit too big . it would walk all over a lot of high end pre power stuff though . the dealer [hi fi guy] will be collecting it and the MASSIVE carrier case will leave a big space in the lounge
