    Oh dear, valves.

    I bought a Chinese valved phono stage from flapland here on the Wam several weeks ago. It also acts as a pre-amp-today I have had it going into a Quad 303.

    Today all I have done is listen to music,vinyl, spotify, cds and I can't remember a better days listening.

    BUT I've always had solid state before, I'm trying to sell some gear off so maybe I can start with a valve amp in a small way-any recommendations?

    Ta,
    Tim

    Something like a Puresound A30, or if more power required there a number of 6550/KT88 PP amps that would do the job

    This is a purely selfish thing-the valve amp would be upstairs in my "study" and would not need to be powerful.
    The Inca Talon can stay in the living room as it useful for the remote for people who cannot got off the sofa.

    I based my comments on the speakers in your profile Tim, what speakers will be using with the proposed valve amp?

    Thanks for taking the time Tel, currently I have some kit LS3/5a clones although if I can't sell my Mission 751's these will stay.
    They are on the end of a a Yamaha CA-800 class A amp ATM.
