    Got a few systems on the go at the moment and I’m looking for a more suitable power amp to drive my Tannoy HPD385s in Lockwood Major cabinets

    What I’ve gathered from reading old posts on this subject is that some of these amps may be suitable (EAR, larger Radfords,Tube Distinction copper, etc) I’m open to suggestions guys

    budget £2.5k

    Can you stretch to £3K? If you can, then I'd go for a brand new Radford Revival STA25. Job done. Forever.

    £2.5K is more than enough to buy you a well cared for/fully rebuilt used example.

    I cannot recommend a Radford enough. I own a Radford Revival sta25 and it drives my rfc Cheviots admirably. Speak to Will- top bloke. I bought an Audiolab 8000c as a stand in pre which was very good but then bought a Rothwell Indus- for the money the Rothwell/ Radford/ Tannoy combo is superb.

    I both a Leak Stereo 20 and original Radford STA25. Both are delightful with my Tannoys.

    The RR STA25 is a superb quality thing and good VFM too.

    Why have I only ever heard great things about Radford and RR? Seriously I don't think I've ever come across another brand (s) with 100% satisfaction. (Excluding the old pres and hybrid amps which I was told to avoid.)
