I will just mention that in looking at the photograph of the amplifier build on eBay, the safety ground on the power entry module isn't connected to anything.
Please ensure that you have decent home owner's or renter's insurance if you buy one of these.
Thanks for the tip. Good one!
The one I am now looking at is not that one.
I'm back down to SE push pull. I'm used to the sound of EL-34 based amps, Dyna 70, Jolida and this might be a good match for $370, shipped from the US. I know the meters are silly but the look is not bad. Maybe in person it will look cheezmo but ........
Speaks might arrive this time next week. I will drive them with a NAD 356BEE (I know, I know) and see if I even like the speakers, then onward and downward. LOL!
I appreciate your observation. I'm trying not to blow up anything.
Bottlehead Co. and concept is a wonderful idea. At 4WPC, might not be quite enough grunt for 95db @ 1 watt. Then I'm into monoblocks to get up to what I think might be the sweet spot for power (8WPC) and that's waay outta my price range.

While I can't comment specifically on the Bottlehead option, I can tell you that many 2A3 users pair their amps with 87db sensitive small full range drivers. With your sensitivity, you'd need a giant room or to really enjoy listebing very loudly to run out of headroom with a 2A3.
