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.
Thats a mans valve is that .
so weak! this is a mans valve!
Oooerr, thats the Kronzilla big boy innit.

Bejesus that looks like an artillary piece! How big is the amp that that mutha sits in?
Not so big actually Al....
that big. however, this is "only" an integrated amp. there's also a monoblock with 4 of these bulbs a side.
I'm going to have a proper look at this. £650. Thanks for the idea audiolink. Dealer is frozenbanana.co.uk
Made even better with Cryo Treated valves.
We believe the use of SA coupling caps and deep cryo treated valves hugely improves this amp, better bass extension and nicer mids.
This amp is not to be confused with the 220v amps made for the Chinese domestic market.
