Just keep in mind, the AN speakers state they are 90db efficient. So unless you are planning on doing nothing but near field monitoring, the 2a3 amp will most likely run out of steam fairly quickly. I've used my 300B amps on some 89db speakers before, while the setup sounded fine on some jazz and smooth music, rock and roll sounds a bit thin even at higher volumes. Just my 2 cents worth.. ck

Thanks for input

I've heard the speakers on an 8w amp in the shop, sounded really good to me (can't remember what amp though).

But can't you tell anything about an amp form tube config etc, is listening the only option (hard to buy Chinese then)

I saw a review on the 300b amp in Italian though (google translate isn't much help):), but it looks like its an sun audio 300b clone:

would the Bowei SJ-813 be a better bet? I've heard good things about the audioromy fu13, but maybe their not as similar as I think?
