Any one has experience with Sugden Integrated?
I used a Sugden Masterclass SpA-4 with my Turnberry Gr and it was one of the best pairings I had.  
Class A Solid State Sound
George might not be right all the time, but he’s never wrong.

200 hours now. Starting to open up. This is the greatest tweeter I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. Such a wide open sound and completely fatigue free. Never feelslike you’re listening to anything electronic. Very analog sounding.  
Organic, musical and natural sounding speakers up to $12K
Try and get the Sonus Faber Electa Amator 3 before the sell out.

You will love them. Still running them in. One thing that’s apparent from the outset is vocals. Every lyric is so enunciated you have no trouble following the vocalist. There were so many albums I was uncertain bout the lyrics; through the EA3 the...

Couldn’t resist. Have them now at home. Only 5 hrs playing. Very airy and midrange / top focused. Has a very ethereal sound. Vocals sound astonishing and tonally spot on. Completely fatigue free and has an illuminated from within sound. I think th...

It’s the Masterclass power amp  does 20w pure Class A then goes to 75w in A/B. I took it to the dealers today and it had no problem driving them. I think these speakers will sound great with valves. I think it’s a 1st order cross over like the old...

I’m running a ARc Ref6 preamplifier with a Sugden Class A power amp. Still using the Kuzma TT (let’s just leave it at that 😉)

Thanks. I’m very close to actually buying a pair. They do have a bit of that old SF magic. BTW you do truly have one of the best speakers ever made!

@daveyf  I know you have the original Guarneri Homage I haven’t listened to them for over 15 years; if you get hear the new EA3 I’d be interested to hear how they compare to yours, which I still think we’re one of the best speakers made.

Heard these today with only 4 hrs out of the box at a dealers. Was really impressed. I’ve always been a fan of Sonus Faber but only when Franco Serblin was running the show. My first pair of “hi-end” speakers were his Grand Piano floor stander wit... 
Turntable that will be around heavy foot steps?
Kuzma Ref2  
What are the speakers you very rarely find in the Used market(Audiogon or Anywhere)?
@polk432 Brilliant! 
Tool fan needs help with speakers (and electronics)
Tannoy or JBL. Will give you big soundstage and dynamics. If you get models with 10” drivers you’ll hear drums that don’t sound compressed the way they ca do on slimline tower speakers.
