That's a curious looking animal.

Valve input and driver with FET outputs?

Whats the problem with the volume pot?

The Copland in the classifieds would a nice alternative. I had one a few years ago and they are very good.

And there's no fucking about with dual volume pots.

Croft uses 2 one for each channel having had his amps before you sometimes set it up and listen no problem other times they system does your head in and you keep messing with them

I hope it is adequately sterile.
funny you should say that long time ago one of his amps blew up when switched on in a shop "cats piss"

If you like characterful stuff, why not get a vintage valve amp and do it up a bit?

Welcome home Dave.

Nowt wrong with tube pre and FET output, however, dual mono pots drive me insane. Pointless and fiddly as hell. Stereo pot and (if required) a balance pot for me every day.

Shame to see you TT less though. Why not something cheap and cheerful for the odd excursion into vinyl? You know it makes sense. Especially as, many years ago, you were the driving force here that pushed me back into vinyl and a serious front end system. Something for which I am in your debt (though not as much as I am in Barclays' debt).

Bloody hell, it's Whitter, of the Dave variety. :shock:

I'd assumed you had finally parted from this mortal coil and gone to your reward. :RIP:

Nice to see that you haven't. :)

Even betterer, how about a cheap fully automatic TT. Just chuck a bit of vinyl on at the start and take it off at the end. Might work.

Ps I'm intrigued about the croft integrated too. I'm sure those volume knobs would piss me off though.
