Hi everyone, 

I'm on the lookout for a power amp of reasonable quality.

To give some idea of quality and price range I'm hoping for something that lies somewhere between, say a Quad 909 and a Benchmark AHB2.

Must be solid state and preferably class A or A/B. 

Having heard a decent chip amp recently I might also consider something along these lines.

If you have anything lying around that needs a new home please get in touch. 

Thank you.

It will help to suggest minimum power output I'd think? 100W into 8 ohms as a class A amp is a very niche amp,  albeit very nice and somewhat large and warm. Parasound products might be a good choice for an a/b amp?

I have a lovely Naim NAP 250-2, serviced about two months ago if that would be of interest? Its boxed etc.

I wasn’t going to change, but the Modwright 200 offered elsewhere has got me considering selling my Nord One Up , it has the Rev c op amps by sonic imagery. It is class D though

I’ve got a recent CA Edge W which I would let go for around the top end of your budget - class A/B with high A bias and measures very well with stellar industrial design. Drop me a PM if you’re interested.

This looks interesting, will have a think about it.
