    I'll hazard a guess and say it will find the Audionotes to be the best match.

    I like the new avatar.

    I've seen the Dan Cave.

    So, how's it going?
    I reckon the amp will be able to drive any of the speakers you have there with no problem.
    It's a gutsy wee beastie!

    Afternoon Gerry it's Going really well I see the similarities with regarded to the leak stereo 20 my dad had one in 2011 but he had to sell at the time
    Been using the Audio Note / Rogers and now trying the very sweet Ruark Talisman in love with all I have tried will be trying more during the next week This is the end game for me amplifier wise it's an astonishing bit of kit the price was a bargain very very happy indeed . The Dan cave is something I have worked on with different levels of kit some of it rare indeed sure impresses folk I'm done now the collection is complete.

    Thanks again

    That's great, Dan - I'm really pleased that you're pleased.
    It is indeed an astonishing bit of kit.
    EL84 have been my favourite power valve for a long time, I just love their clear open naturalness and control. And the LA Audio amp is a very good implementation, imho.
    But I'm done with valves now, I think.
    It's good that it's gone to an appreciative home.

    Beautiful sounding time to settle down and focus on the music won't be that easy for you to leave valve you will have another I'm sure i Still can't believe I now own a valve amp so so happy.

    The DC1000's should work well too.
