This is a wonderful English made audiophile grade amplifier in excellent cosmetic and flawless working condition.

Arcam integrateds I have tried have been excellent. The review suggests it comes with remote and the cited specs suggest MM/MC phono stage is fitted so good to confirm this.

Hi guys. It doesn't have the phono board which is why I am reluctantly selling it. It also doesn't have the remote. That is reflected in the price. The phono board was an optional extra.

My preference to find a local buyer.

I was wondering whether this might be a worthwhile upgrade to my Rega Brio R?

I need a phono stage so I might pair the Arcam with a  Rega Mini.

 

On paper, it's double the power of the little Brio.

      I’m hoping you knowledgeable people can help me out.
       
      I originally posted a thread seeking help on selecting a suitable AV receiver and speakers (fronts and centre) for a 3.1 setup. I was originally planning on getting a 7.2 receiver as I may (a very unlikely may) end up getting some surround L/R built into the wall.
       
      The other day I went into a local Hi-Fi store and demoed a number of speakers and decided to buy the Wharfedale D320 bookshelf speakers (we were very impressed with the sound from such tiny speakers) and the Wharfedale D300c as I was initially set on a 3.1 setup through an AV receiver.
       
      However, upon reading up on a few forums and receiving advice from knowledgable people on other AV forums, it sounds like I’d be better off going for a stereo amplifier and buying two bookshelf speakers. I never considered this as I always thought a 2 channel setup would result in poor audio quality for film/TV, especially dialogue.
       
      I currently use a JBL Cinema SB 450 (soundbar) hooked up to my TV via optical (the Arc HDMI input has gone - either on the SB or my TV). I only have a PS4, 4K player and Apple TV 4K hooked up to my TV.  For music I use a Bose Wave SoundTouch.
       
      I’m looking to buy a setup to replace the soundbar and Bose Wave to improve on the sound quality, the major issue with the soundbar is the dialogue.  My partner has hearing problems so we’re having to have subtitles on all the time. We don’t want the setup to be too big (ie floor standing speakers) as the room it will be in is used a lot for having friends over, so we don’t want the setup to be a dominant feature of the room.
       
      Whatever setup I get I’ll be using it equally for music and film/TV. I haven’t got a turntable yet but will be looking to get one soon.
       
      I may cancel my speaker order tomorrow and use advice from members to buy a suitable system.
       
      I do have a reasonable budget for the system, but was hoping not to go above $3k. If I do go for a 2 channel stereo system, I’d probably need a sub too so that would need to be factored in.  Is $3k going to be enough to buy me a 2 channel stereo setup that will out perform my current soundbar? If so, what amp and speakers should I consider - will the D320s be ok to keep? We don’t want floorstanding speakers and the bookshelf speakers will sit on top of our entertainment unit on either side of the TV.
       
      As most of my music listening is done via streaming, should I get an amp with Wi-Fi or can this be done through phone / computer? Or would it be best to get a stereo amp and a DAC with streaming capabilities? 
       
      Or should I stick with an AV receiver with a 3.1 setup?
       
      If it helps my living room is 5.8m x 3.8.  About 2m x 3.8 is not used for entertaining as it is an empty space with some wall furniture and one seat that we use for reading.  We sit about 2.5 metres from the TV. The room is also carpeted.

      This in-depth review covers all the features well - i never thought i'd say this but read the comments as well to learn more about the headphone amp (supposed to be fantastic) and speaker pairings.

      Here’s a great review below from Clement Perry of Stereotimes and plenty more online.
      http://v2.stereotimes.com/post/new-audio-frontiers-supreme-300b-special-edition-integrated-amplifier/
       
      This amp also comes with an array of tubes as I have researched, and tube rolled the best options available. These include:
       
      1 x pair ECC83 TESLA (not new JJ) – These are the framed grid tesla that come out of the same factory as the famed Telefunken ECC803S. I was recommended these by the NAF agent in Germany. Amazing harmonics with a dark juicy sound. 1 x pair ECC83 Telefunken (original boxes) – Huge dynamics with a very linear sound. My preferred ECC83 currently.  1 x pair ECC83 – Original Yugoslavian pair that came with the amp 1 x pair 5687 RCA – Tung-Sol Black Grid 2 x pair (one unused) of the Sperry Raytheon 5687 tube. These are my firm favourites, huge soundstage and very dynamic. I liked them so much I purchased another pair 300B – 4 x matched TJ Full Music Tubes – These have been in use for the past 5 years. No issues and still going stronG. I also have 4 of the standard 300B tubes the amp came with,  these can’t be guaranteed however will include with amp  
      This is the 230v model.
       
      Amp will be sent in original packaging and comes with remote.
