Just a few pictures of this lovely vintage amp that I am busy with re capping and a few upgrades, this might be very old but play as smooth as class A single ended can be

Lovely old amp and cosmetically great as well.

We used to sell these with B&W DM2a or DM4s and usually with a Thorens TD124/SME/Shure V15 and the package sounded just great.

I posted this elsewhere. The speakers discussed was a pair of  QUAD corner ribbons.

I heard a pair years ago in a wonderful non-audio room with timber floors,overstuffed leather couches and thousands of books and cds everywhere. Amp was an ancient Sugden a21. No idea what the source was or how to describe the sound in hifi terms but it was one of the most pleasant music listening evenings l ever had.
