I have been thinking of downsizing my amp, the beast that is the Denon PMA-2500NE.
Its excellent, and I can’t fault it other than the sheer size.
Its vastly over specified than I need, but sounds great with my Supravox 165-2000 full-range drivers but at ~97dB they really only need a handfull of watts.
I have the little Decware Zen but I actually prefer the Denon, just would like something smaller.
The only real needs are minium 2-inputs (for TT and CDP) and happy with 4Ohm speakers.
Not fussed between valve or SS although not been the bigest fan Class-D but I have had good experience with Tripath/T-Amps previously.
I’m less keen on another SET amp just as the Supravox drivers have quite a high Qts so I need the low output impedance to keep the bass under control.
I really love the look of the Quad QC Twenty Four preamp, and like the smaller size so would not be adverse to a Pre-Power, such as the Eastern Electric Minimax combo.
Any thoughts on lower-ish powered amplifiers that would be happy with 4Ohm high sensitivity speakers, budget would say be up to £1.5k.
