Default Goonybird-New to Forum...

But old to Hi-Fi and apologies to bore you...
briefly started in my teen years (1970's) with 2x old gramophone valve units to make stereo.. then over years had various bits (and I have a list!) Used to buy use and then sell, enjoyed Valve amps particularly Leak stereo 20 which I still rate, Radford STA25 then a Stereo 60(100) which I restored fully, then stupidly sold on.... Now into Cinema so have full surround, but been trying to integrate a decent stereo power amp into system, Currently Bi-amped a pair of Roksan Kandy Power amps which are closest I have had to perfection. But wanted a Valve amp to mess about with again after upgrading a Yaqin MS22B to a Lesbox conversion. Hence the KEL34 just happened to be cheapest project, without stupid money being asked.
And bolted a Rogers Cadet Power amp on the rear parcel shelf of a Vauxhall Omega driving philips coaxial units......(glorious sound)

Yes Welcome.

Bob beat me to it. So which made the best / most noise, the Cadet, the Omega or the inverter squealing...?
