Is anyone interested in a sony str db925 AV amp? I have one that I no longer need, and could do with raising some funds. Its got the remote and manual for the amp. £25 but collection only from Gosport or Fareham area of Hampshire. Please pm if interested.

Also have a pioneer a300x stereo amp knocking about.

It's a bit of a 'how long is a piece of string' question.

A properly designed one should match headphones better and therefore should sound better than using the one on your power amp, but several amps have decent separate 'phone amps built in.

It does open up the possibility of using a small, low powered Class A amp though, as efficiency and heat generation isn't such an issue for a low powered amp.

All that Quad gear from the tip works so I am going have an entire Hifi made less than 3 miles from my house.

I had some Linn and Meridian too if that helps. And some Spendor BC-1

It was a Linn LK 280 power amp, Meridian 201 CD/ pre with a matching FM tuner.

The Spendors were the BBC active version with built in 100w amplification. They needed new cabinets but were very nice when finished.
