Quad II classic integrated...

Well done to Gramophone for reviewing this amp; based on an old design, it's good to see a mainstream magazine extolling the qualities of tube amps (more to come please). I do have one concern though; at £4500 this is expensive for an integrated tube amp, and lthough the quality appears to be excellent,  I am convinced for that money there are better tube amps out there, even if you're into single ended 2A3 or 45 amps hand-made in the US or Japan. Blimey, even some very decent Audio Note UK amps are competitively priced. ATB MyronC

RE: Quad II classic integrated...

Audio Note products are good! Some 10 on more years ago I built their single ended 300B valve power amplifier and their valve phono stage/preamp and have had no cause to regret it. Wonderful open sound with no harshness yet every detail resolved: sensitive 'speakers are of course required for a 9 watt power amp (and please don't attempt to build anything operating at 450 volts dc unless you know what you're at!).
