Floyd Droid, I was thinking in terms of how 8-30 wpc might sound once back home and the initial excitement has lessened, once a few tracks had been played.

Dont let flea power put you off. If you can home dem then you owe it to yourself to try some out. 

I see that you have Wilmslow kit speakers. Do you have  any idea of their sensitivity and nominal impedance ?. That will be quite useful in giving you a few options to have a play around with. 

For example my speakers are 90db 8ohm nominal. One of my valve amps is a single ended flea power 10 watter, drives em easy peasy, anything past 12 o'clock is far too loud for me and ive got a big room.

Match well and prepare to be gobsmacked. 

Of course only you will know what sound reproduction appeals to your lugs, there are many ways to skin a cat in the valve amp dept.

that big. however, this is "only" an integrated amp. there's also a monoblock with 4 of these bulbs a side.
