    You'll need to decide what speakers you want to use it with. Single ended amps will have a sweeter sound with very high efficiency speakers but if you want to try it with a variety of speakers you'll need push pull, EL34 amps are a great starting point. That's where I started, still got my first one and never looked back.

    This has been around a while, goes absolutely fabulous with my Podium 0.5 panels.
    Still, I'm OK with moving it on.
    It comes with Reflektor el84 (fabulous! and Brimar ecc81.
    I'll take £300.

    I thought I'd better plug it in and make sure all is OK.

    Thar she glows ...



    Cor.
    It sounds good.
    If you want to change your mind, Dan, it's not a problem!

    Should be good, most EL84 amps are pretty nice sounding. The Leaks I had were very sweet.

    The only exception I've come across is the Icon Audio Stereo 20PP, which managed to be pretty dull and bland.

    Not what Iíve found with mine Geoff. I still prefer it to the TPA3116. That is with Reflektor and Gold Lion rather than the stock valves though.

    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.
