Default Amp recommendation for wharfadale super 8 rs/dd

Hello gentleman
I was just wondering which amp to mate with the wharfadale super 8 rs/dd. It is rated at 10-15 ohm, efficiency of 92db...
Thanks in advance,,,

The classic match would be a LEAK TLA12, QUADII or Radford STA15. The bigger LEAK & Radford valves are also good but the speaker has very high sensitivity so not really needed.

A good DIY solid state match would be JLH's little Class A amplifier. Use HIS improvements. There are a lot of other people's version which 'improve' THD etc but lose the unique features that give it good sound.
