I have experience lusting after them, does that count? The Sig Edition with some Tannoys would be some kind of heaven I think.

After trying Bryston 17b cubed with Bryston 4b cubed with my PMC twenty 5/26 and not really enjoying the sound I decided to go the Sugden route I purchased a Masterclass 1A4 integrated pure class A 33 watts/ channel and now I am in heaven Sugden has all the power I need to produce the soundstage the detail the base and balance the pmc is capable of making. I was thinking of purchasing another Masterclass for my Fact 8s but I am waiting for delivery of my Goldnote IS 1000 integrated built in dac streamer and gain adjustment if it doesn’t work out I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another Sugden for my Facts.
I own the A21se and love it. Check out the recent Tone Publications review. The review ends this way:
“I guarantee that this is an amplifier, that once you hear it, you will never forget it. Very enthusiastically recommended, especially in a world where we mistakenly think that “high end sound” requires a six figure budget.”
Never had integrated amp from Sugden but in the 90's I bought new (demo) a set of Au41 pre and Au31 power amp, still have these in my second listening room with either Magnepan SMG or Tangent RS6. Few years ago I had the chance to find a Au51 pre and Au51 power amp used, they are with Snell Acoustics CII. SUGDEN FOREVER AND EVER
