    If you are willing to give up on the 'remote' and the British part, then one of the little TPA3116 Class D amps that can be had for approx £20 will surprise you. I also had an AA Puccini SE so I am familiar with it's sound. The little TPA3116, together with a decent power source and a passive source selector switch will give you astonishing value. Hook it up to a RPi-based streamer and you'll have a cracking setup for little outlay.
    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Yes they do, not sure if it’s the same circuit or not. Probably though.

On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    I think they are a Pass design, or possibly the JLH class A, it whatever they are, they really do sound very nice.
    Hi Ali, They look very small to be able to dissipate 10W of class A. My Pass F5 which is about 25W has massive heat sinks comparatively.
