They have an outstanding reputation as a classic amp. There is an article in June2007 HiFi News about Sugden amps, by Jim leSurf.

Sugden are indeed classic amplifiers in every sense of the word. They run strictly class A operation which means they are low powered and run quite hot. They are music lover's, mostly classical and jazz, amplifiers. I doubt they are what a rocker would choose and certainly not a head banger. They prefer efficient, simple loads when driving a speaker and will satisfy most when the speakers share the amplifier's goals of reproduction. They are rather sparse in both inputs and controls. I would classify Sugden as an afficianados's amplifier. Do you consider yourself to be an afficianado?

The Sugden I heard was a A21, with Audio Note ANJ speakers, and was outstanding.

Dallas, if you pursue the Sugden, I suggest looking into Audio Note speakers, ANj or ANk with or without the silver internal wiring option.
