Brings back fond memories of my old Hi-Fi set with bi-amped speakers (Sonus Faber). Had UK made monoblocks B300 (7 watts ea) to drive the high freq, and a solid state stereo poweramp for the mid-lows. Sweet and transparent sound!

They were Audion monoblocks - even though the output was 7W, the B300 ran very hot! Yes, unfortunately when I moved to smaller premises in 2003, I had to give up this much loved hobby. Sold them off to some lucky bloke from KL.

It will be easier if we know where you are. If in Singapore visit ground floor in Burlington Square (N1 18.140 E103 51.156 - opposite Sim Lim Sq) on Bencoolen Street. There are two shops selling Tubes Martin and Wells Audiolab. Hope this helps... cheers!
