Vintage Radio Restoration (VRR) of Sussex, bespoke KT88 Power Amplifier
Vintage Radio Restoration (VRR) of Sussex, bespoke KT88 Power Amplifier. Made by David Wright, I think, of Audionote and Beauhorn fame. In excellent working order, has some capacitor upgrades a few years ago. Uses Partridge transformers, I think. Massively powerful, sounds as sweet as a nut.

Excellent working order, obviously, supplied with a Creek Passive Volume control that I've been using it with. Cash on collection from Bedford please.

It's absolutely huge, dwarfs Radford power amps, no chance of sending it anywhere. Found some copy about David Wright online.. David Wright had worked for Audionote as a designer and, as I got to know him, I learned that he used to repair and service old Quads and Leaks in his spare time (still does, for that matter).

Learned how, even from his lofty Audionote perspective, he was struck by the enduring quality, good value and good sound of those old amps. Yet he knew he could do much better - not only through.

Superior design but also through using better quality components that were coming on the market via military equipment sell-offs in the late 70s and early 80s. Falling fast at the time still is?

And David felt confident he could create a new generation of winners, by combining old-fashioned quality with new technology, at a reasonable price. Of those rare people who really and truly put helping people enjoy recorded music first. Add tremendous application and technical nous - and he surely could not fail. It means Vintage Radio Restoration - and choosing that name, I suspect, may have been the first mistake made by David and his partner. To me, the name implies retro, whereas. They were actually engaged in quite major evolution. Altogether, I suspect that they did not take their marketing seriously, perhaps under the common illusion that'if it's excellent and well. Priced, it's bound to succeed'.

They did sell some VRR amps, but not in sufficient numbers to make a go of it. At this point, I'll stick my neck out and say that VRR amps are substantially better than any equivalent Leak or Quad model in every single area, and more musical than most of the best current.

Designs, at a fraction of the price. They are also more practical than vintage amps (and many modern ones), in that David Wright's telephone number is on the back of each one and he stands behind. This item is in the category "Sound & Vision\Vintage Sound & Vision\Amplifiers & Tube Amps".
