If anyone spots one used, let me know.

Yeah, more chance of finding the lost city of Atlantis and all that. Cheers

That was quick!  There’s one here on our favourite website 1.5 hrs from me, could’ve made enquiries but I see you have it boxed off, this one is just an L not a PL?

That's a scam. Actually got ripped off by that exact poster 6 months ago. Avoid

Yes. The advert is using one of my old photos. Avoid!

Can do, I had a fair bit of information about the guy. Got my money back fully and his scamming bank account shut down. He is rife on adpost, whoever it is. Like whack a mole - you report one and five others pop up.

Great news. I always wondered where you got to with that.

Wow, found and bought. Awesome

So, how does it sound?  I've been mulling over one of these ever since getting the new EAR Phonobox.  :-)

Arriving tomorrow :)

I'm going to use my 8L6 in power amp mode until I go on the hunt for a dedicated power.

I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts once you've had time to test it out - I hope it works well for you  :)

I had an 8L6 for many years and used it both in integrated form and then with an EAR864 in power amp mode.

It makes a superb combo with the 868 and even with my Hovland pre.

Don't be in too much of a rush  to sell it on

I probably won't for a good while as the power amps don't come up that often used. I believe the 534 is the same as the 834/8L6 anyway? 

Looking for an 890 ideally. Unsure if the 861 will be powerful enough.

Yes the 861 is the best one to go for. WPC don't mean that much with EAR poweramps . However 861's are like rocking horsepoo and expensive.  Goes well with Tannoys

890 has grunt but is somewhat coarse by comparison
