    Happy Saturday friends - looking for the above for a friend please.

    Up to about £150 ish ... I'm thinking a decent jap integrated, must be in excellent working order and good cosmetic condition.

    What you got?? :)

    Hi. Have a Sony TA-FB740R with remote. MM phono input. QS. Range.
    Also a NAD 3130 with mm and mc phono input.

    Both VERY good cond. The Sony is near mint and the NAD not far behind.

    Thanks both but looking for a bit more power if possible. The Rotel is only 60w output

    Thanks for the reply. The Sony is very polite and refined. The NAD has some welly. Yet only quoted at 30 wpc. I believe the Naim 250 is rated around 70 wpc so very much of a minefield the specifications quoted by manufacturer's. as i'm sure you are aware.
    I think the power consumption of the Rotel may be 330 watts. Not its power output.
    Good luck with your search.

    You definitely need some grunt to drive those small ATC speakers (I've owned both)

    Do you have an existing amp with a pre-out? If so, you might consider a power amp.

    I was surprised at how easily the Audiolab 8000S drove other inefficient speakers I had - not much over your budget

    Agreed - I'm thinking 80w min. Just reccomended him a second hand yammy as500, should do the job

    Took a NAP 200 to make my 11's sing, Nait XS wasn't bad but the NAP 200 made a lot of difference.
