Ebay, box it up and off courier postage, lots of drop off points

Except the speakers maybe as they'll be a bit big and heavy

Thanks LGF, not sure got time to box up for couriers so may try local FB type pages first, it's not like it owes me anything much so price wise, somewhere between what it's potentially worth and cheaper than that should be a good deal for someone :lol: :lol:

Good afternoon can anyone please recommend some valve friendly i.e. sensitive stand mount speakers? I have an upgraded Fatman itube in need of better speakers.

Have a look at the kef q series. Nice small responsive drivers. Great for small rooms.

Those KEF are very low sensitivity, I'd look at something else at around 89db upward.

Q acoustics, Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 get mentioned a lot.

Theres some much older kit that goes well with valves such as the large Leak Sandwich speakers from the 1970's - but they always need a tweak or two as the bass drivers sag and need inverting.

Often over looked is all the Japanese stuff from the 1980's and 90's, very cheap, sound great and very sensitive.

Really? I’m surprised by that. Having hooked up half a dozen different pairs over the last few months, these are the easiest to drive.

86db is quite poor.

I have some Mission 752 which are famously easy to drive with valve amplification

Postage only though, you'd need to find some tweeters!
