    looking for a better valve amp

    due to the sale of some of my kit my hi-fi fund is looking quite healthy, and this is usually a good time of year to buy, im looking to spend between one and two grand on a "better" amp, must have at least 15 watts a side for the quad 63s can be intergrated or power, must be valves, anyone got anything, oh and could possibly do a part ex with my tube tech unisis sig
    cheers guys

    ta ian pdiddys leban is sold, i have had a maybe better thought, if anyone has a amp that might fit the bill, like the canary they could bring it to scalford and demo it on my kit , that would be really good , dont know if i can pull this off though, but i love the idea

    Rob, i found my old Unisis better then the Leben 300 that i had a the same time, so I certainly wouldnt go throwing double the money at one of those. what do you want different / better than what the Unisis does? you may not need tp spend more if you are just after something with a slightly different presenation. The unisis does take some beating as an alroundertho..and it does look superb.

    How about talking to Tony at Central Audio? Several tasty looking valve possibilities there.

    There is an Almarro on Ebay for only 1,750. You are not going to get anything better at this price.

    Should have bought my Unison S8! Ah well, that's the benefit of hindsight.

    Is there anything in particular you're after? I have some ideas...

    If you want a memory refresher I am fairly local and have been using a 300b amp for the past 4 years or so. Bring you amp and do a comparison
