Cheap retro amps

A friend wants to get an old/retro amp. I suggested the likes of Nad, Rotel, Marantz etc.
His budget is small, £100 ebay punds.

Any ideas on specific amps worth searching for?

You should get a NAD 320BEE for about £60 - £70
Well worth that money, but line only.

Rotel 820

Creek 4040


Rotel 930ax, includes a phono stage



Great amp but more than £100

Thanks guys, some good ideas there.

If he can collect I’ve got an Arcam 90.2 he can have for a £50 donation to cancer research.

For £100 he can have Linn Index speakers and K400 cable to go with it.


Where abouts are you?

He works away a lot so not sure he could travel. No harm in asking tho.
