    Default FS - Lentek integrated amplifier

    Difficult decision this.

    This has been so impressive.
    Can be used as a pre, power or integarted.
    Built like a tank.
    Sounds wonderful.
    Can't think of anything that comes close at the price.

    Has been used with kef 104/2 and is well suited to difficult speakers such as big yams.

    Wear to power button paint.
    A few blemishes as it is nearly 40 years old, but overall very nice condition.

    Selling only for financial reasons.

    £425 collected or please arrange a courrier.

    Thanks for looking.

    Silly cheap for what they go for.
    I`ve never seen anything like it for build quality (hiii for otherwise).

    It's in my all time top 5 hifi gear for sure.

    They are a stupendous amplifier with sympathetic speakers. They were a fortune new, £745 in 1978, and were built to an extremely high standard. I took mine to a demo and the dealer said, "What the hell is that? Forget about replacing it for under £4k!"
    Main system: Sony TTS8000; SME IV; Audio Technica Art1; Denon PMA-850; SBT; Technics sh-x1000 DAC; Yamaha NS1000.

    I've got a minter, serviced and recapped too!
    Seriously though, it is an excellent amplifier, really top drawer. It was cost no object and the review I sent ypu earlier, declared it the best available, at that time.

    It is fussier than the specs suggest though: with some speakers it is just amazing, while ordinary with others.

    One of the main reviewers used one as his preamp of choice for many years. Personally, I prefer it as an integrated.

    Iím going to try it with the 909 a bit later but I just donít see how it could be improved, might be an end game for me but I must a get a mint one otherwise it just bugs me.
    Howís the teaching going over there ? Are you in lockdown too ?
