    Settled on these about 5 years ago after a few twists and turns along the journey:

    Exposure XVII (MC phono stage)
    Avondale M1 monoblocks
    White Noise Audio MkIII headphone amp, because these things matter too !

    Quad 77 Integrated (bought new and still in daily use)
    Quad 405-2 with improved Dada boards (bought second hand on eBay)
    Quad 520f - "refreshed" by Dada (bought second hand on eBay)

    No complaints. They will outlast me as I am coming up 70.

    When I was a new graduate and had no money I had a Goodmans Tuner-Amp. When I had some money I bought a Sugden A48/T48 and used them half my life. When they needed a lot of TLC I sold them to an enthusiast who would give it.

    You may judge me a long term buyer!
    Brian

    In Southampton: Quad 77 Int Amp, AVI Neutron 4
    In Nicosia: Quad 520f refreshed by Dada - Quart 980s German Tower Loudspeakers.
    In both: Chromecast and Chromecast Audio, Beresford 7510 or 7520 DAC

    Very happy owner of a Shengya preamp and Jungson power amp. Superb items, and far superior to the Meridian amp i had previously
    Without music, powerboat racing, photography and a whole stack of other stuff that floats my boat, life is just a non stop procession of deadlines and bills.

    Valve monos have gone, big Quad amp gone, Class A power amps gone. This is my main amp at the moment, the notorious seventeen quid TPA3116 unit from China.



    I still have a few integrateds and two Quad 306 power amps, but the TPA3116 sounds amazingly good and drives my big Tannoys just fine.
