Get's good reviews but I'll stick with the QUAD thanks.
And why not?
It’s replacing my venerable 30 year old 8000a which was getting graunchy on one channel (not switches). I toyed with having it refurbished, but then thought I’ll try something modern!

The old girl has done well! But it’s part of an overall upgrade strategy. Currently the rest is this (residing in my small office):

And a pair if Audio Q 8020i bookshelves.

The Rogers Studio1a’s having died a long while ago....

Next stop is building a pair of these:

In the meantime there is the Thorens TD 160 SME 3009 combo to refurb and move it into @Hill Wimp lounge ;-)

Then CD player upgrade...

Ah but look at the retro loveliness of these,

'Lefty' has not long been back to Huntingdon for a rebuild, a couple of hundred quid well spent I just hope 'Righty' carries on for a bit longer (it's about 15yrs since he was done)

BTW both Poweramps run as 2 channel 'monoblocks' into B&W 602 S3's with the shorting bars removed.

I built the S4TLs many years ago - since then, I've changed the drive units and crossovers twice as new units came out. The current incarnation with kevlar bass and ribbon tweeters is just superb.

I've built some other IPL speakers (all good) and some more of my own design, using discarded drive units.
