Sugden Integrated IA-4 versus Ayre AX-7


I am considering a Sugden IA-4 to replace an Ayre AX-7 anyone any experience with both these amps?

Or even with the Sugden in general? I used to have a Sugden a21a before I went to the AX-7.

My source is an Oppo 105 and speakers Proac 2.5's.

Have you considered the new AX-5 from Ayre? It's getting a lot of great press and sounds really good...
I had the 2.5's. I can't imagine you not getting good results with the Ayre. One of my friends has a Sugden. The things a fire hazard. If you need a little more power than the Ayre, the BAT300 sounds great with the 2.5's.
I'd love the AX-5 but the price is out of my range and I do like the sound of my AX-7-I basically have an Ayre CX-7 that I no longer use and I have seen a Sugden at a decent price so I thought a system overhaul might be in order-I can get the Sugden on a deposit for a trial so I was interested in opinions.

Thanks for the replies so far.

I'm not clear on the above statement. If you have the Ayre and don't use it, why would you get something else?
Because the CX-7 is a CD player which I replaced with an Oppo 105 and I saw a Sugden amp and I thought might just replace my amp also.
Did you end up upgrading to the Sugden IA-4?  I'm curious to know your opinion on the amp.  Thx
