I used to own a pair of those and loved them. I'm still kicking myself for selling them. They had slightly noisy transformers, but other than that a warm, powerful sound.

The only small amps today that will compete with your big mono blocks will be some of the Class D amps. I can certainly name some, but am not personally experienced. If you don't get many responses, I'd start a new thread on class d amps that will compete with what you had, others will chime in. I sold and love your 250's also.
So it sounds like I should try to find a cabinet that can contain them, and sit tight. The biggest issue(s) are size and appearance. I feel so grown-up, voluntarily making system changes that take shared space into account.
I've found a few stands sufficiently deep to hide them behind cabinet doors, which is another option. In my ideal world, the only thing visitors would see is the turntable (Thorens TD2010, chosen for its combo of good sound and beauty).
Thanks much for the feedback, and you're right, Dfwmemdiagroup .... they can get rather buzzy, but man, the sound. They will be overkill for the NOLA Boxers they're going to be driving, but that sound. Or non-sound, to me.
