Item: SGR Audio - EL15s Power Amplifier
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Integrated Valves - My journey must continue
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only, Or shipping can be negotiated
This is an amazing little amplifier. 80 conservative watts per channel, easily bettering 150W Class D in my system. I bought this about 18 months ago from a member here, and it has worked flawlessly ever since.
The unit has the choice of balanced XLR or normal RCA inputs, has a VU meter, auto-power-off and some sort of stealth mode . I have never seen it get to three bars on the VU before it was uncomfortable to listen to, and it was driving some Monitor Audio GS 60 floor standers.... so no issues with power. It has a fantastic, spacious sound, but is fast, clean and keeps a great grip on the bass.
Before I bought it, it had been recently re-capped by SGR and brought back to original spec. This unit is a well built little tank, with ginormous heat sinks to ensure it barely gets warm to the touch.
This amp is the real deal, and I believe it is one of the foundations for the amazing amplifiers in SGR Audio's active speaker range.

My treasured SGR Audio speakers are potentially on the market as I investigate make a significant simplification of my setup. Never envisaged writing this as I thought they were keepers forever!
Was originally motivated to purchase SGR Audio active speakers because of their clarity, detail, and value for money. Yes, value for money because there is no need for power amplifiers, with the in-built class A/B amplifiers perfectly matched to the speakers. Chose the CX3Bs with more WAF appeal but otherwise are built to the same standards as the larger CX4Fs (review).
While the CX3Bs are bookshelves, they can match many floor standers and go down to 35 Hz.
Recently upgraded all 3 to MkII which gave a significant performance boost. ** no warranty with upgrade, but SGR exceptional customer service will fix any upgrade issue, likely for free **
The CX3Bs are currently being used in my 2 channel and HT setups. The CX3C is only for HT, newer and used a lot less. The CX3Bs together with the CX3C make a superb, matched front speaker combination for HT.
If required, shipment can be arranged. No original packaging because they were delivered and installed by Stuart Ralston (of SGR Audio). Will get Stuart’s advice on how best to ship them, but cost will likely be significant as speakers plus stands are heavy and a wooden crate will likely be recommended. Shipping now included to major cities and regional centres in Australia. Will be well protected in heavy cartons.
Please note that this an EOI to gauge interest and is dependent on the simplification going ahead. I hope to make a decision in the next two weeks on whether to proceed with the sale.
Decision made to proceed with sale.

I tried to get some pics and a bit of info on some of the rooms, I'll have to keep updating over the next few days. Sorry if any spelling is wrong or names or prices. I should be able to present a half decent overview though. I'll just say once that all comments are to my ears, i didn't use anyone else at the show. And all opinions are mine I am not writing about any one else.
If you have a question let me know I may be able to come up with an answer.
Rooms are in no particular order.
First up is this huge room with huge JBL and huge Melody electronics. This was a large scale sound. Big bass but just because you can have big bass doesn't mean you should. I felt it smeared into the rest of the sound. I perhaps can see why some like it but for me it was underwhelming. They seem to be making things bigger these days and then charger more.
