Tannoy HPD compatibility

    Hi Guys , I’m looking for a bit of advice from the more experienced Tannoy users .
    Its all new to me as I’ve been into flea power amps and horns for longer than I care to mention but I decided a few years ago to setup a second system based around Lockwood speakers when I ever I found a pair
    I have been on the look out for a suitable amp now to partner with my recently acquired Lockwood Majors . Currently fitted with some newly re-coned by Lockwood HPD385’s
    My 8w SET amp has no chance of dealing with the 15” cones , I’ve dug out my GM70 powered SET and it sounds ok but I still feel it’s not ideal at getting the best out of these marvellous speakers
    I keep reading good things about using Radford amps with Big Tannoys but most of the stuff I’ve read seems to be referring to the Monitor Golds and not the HPDs . There’s a nice looking STA25 up for sale at the moment , I’m just a bit apprehensive to jump on it without being 100% that it will be a good match with my speakers
    Anyone using one with 15” HPDs that can confirm it’s got enough power to do these justice ?

    The STA25 is a brilliant match for 15" HPD's and more than powerful enough.

    I own both, that's how I know.
