A magazine from 1992 says 70 watts per channel and £545 new. I haven't owned an Integra, but my old Heybrook Signature pre/power (£2000) from the same time sounded great, albeit on the bright side of neutral and with 'cottage industry' build quality.

Hi,

AFAIK Heybrook amps (apart from C2/P2 designed by Tim de Para), were mainly re-housed Audiolabs, p3 was an 8000P and Integra an 8000a - hence the brightness.

Not bad in the big scheme of things but the Integra looked bl*&&y awful given that it was early 90's. :(

Depends what sound you prefer but I'd get a nice 2nd hand Sugden any day! :)

The Signatures are Tim de Para designs, but need careful matching. It's interesting you say that the Integra was based on an 8000A; I once bought some Tannoy 609s from a chap who had an 8000A and that was a match made in hell. Back in my system they sounded wonderful
