Hi there peeps,
Newish here and I feel like I am asking "how long is a piece of string?" but I am looking to replace my ageing (but still very operational) Audiolab 8000m (x2 - UK made originals)) power amps. The pre is a MF Nu Vista which I really like and have just had serviced and re-valved and the speakers are Epos M22i. Main source is vinyl and digital streamed via a Leema DAC. Music is almost everything - maybe less classical. So I am really thinking second hand and trying to maintain the same pre-power balance. I quite like how it all sounds. Budget is variable but 2-4k for the right thing that will last (though i cannot help lusting after a pair of NAP135s which are more than that). I tend to keep stuff - my turntable is a heavily modified Planar 3 that I bought in 1990!
Anyway - would appreciate any thoughts. Hope you are doing ok in these strange times.
