    With much regret, have decided to part with my Croft set-up owing to downsizing and the need to move to an integrated. The amps, which are in immaculate condition, comprise a 25R line-only pre-amp, and two 7R mono power amps. They are nearly 4 years old, and were purchased from Divine Audio (25R £1,000, 7R monos £2,800 the pair.
    See https://www.divineaudio.co.uk/product/croft-acoustics-series-7r-mono-power-amplifiers-pair/.
    They were recently serviced and upgraded by Glenn Croft with new transformers and valves; original and other valves available. (As you may know, Glenn is a real gent and very helpful on advice, upgrades, etc. – contactable via email – see the Croft website http://www.croftacoustics.co.uk/products.html).
    He builds all his amplifiers personally – no PCBs but point-to-point soldering, top-notch components, a purist approach to amplification: truly a case of ‘less is more’. Single volume controls and remote controls can be retro-fitted via Audioflair (https://audioflair.co.uk/category/croft/), as can a phono stage to the 25R or the separate Croft phono amp (both incredible value) can be used in conjunction with the 25R. Most Croft aficionados prefer the twin volume pots which provide more control with less complication.

    These amplifiers are sonically the best I’ve owned: the 25R is a wonderful pre which I used originally with the 7R stereo power which was very impressive, then upgraded to the top-of-the-range monos which produced an even wider, deeper soundstage, phenomenal detail without losing the wonderful fluid, organic mesmerising musicality associated with Croft. They seem very powerful with great grip and control, and have driven any speaker I have used with them with ease. They all have original packaging.

    Four the three amplifiers I’m asking £2,350, or separately for the 7R monos £1,750 and for the 25R £750. Collection (and audition) in Liverpool, or can arrange courier etc at cost. May be able to deliver or meet within reasonable distance.
