    Thanks. Same to you with the Hegel - another brand I have not heard or owned but by reputation they are supposed to be superb.

    The Sugden, to be honest, was (and is) a complete revelation to my ears. Not what I was expecting at all - I anticipated a warm, old fashioned valve like sound. Nothing could be further from the truth. It has the attributes of a good valve amp in that it has a non-fatiguing presentation but it is also fast and detailed.

    I have owned a number amplifiers over the years and this one seems to be one of the most natural I have heard. It is also one of the most balanced amps I have had with superb bass and natural treble.

    The midrange is also superb - not quite on a level with the Croft Amps I had before - but not far of and the bass is significantly better than the Croft for less "on paper" power.

    I could go on and on. If you can loan one I would.

    Yup I love sugdens. Never owned one but each time I hear one I think 'why not'?
    Amp/speaker synergy as a concept comes and goes in HiFi fashion, but proac/sugden never, ever goes out of fashion.
    Am also happy to admit that, whilst the 21 is a fine amp, the masterclass is something astonishing, worldclass and lovely. Like Quad electrostatics, every audiophool should own a masterclass at some point.
