    Hey everybody!

    I'm really excited and pretty out of my depth to be learning about vintage audio gear, so some assistance would be awesome.

    I found a pair of big speakers on kerbside collection that I love - all I could find out about them is:

    They were probably made in Melbourne Australia by George Hawthorn Electronics.

    Tweeters AD0160/T8
    Mids are KEF B110
    Bass 12" AD12100/W8

    AND they came with two x 3m? hectic LINN K400 cables, which I had hardwired into the backs of the speakers because the connections didn't marry up...

    AND I also acquired a pair of AKAI SW136 speakers the other day too... they just looked so nice!!

    So I really want to buy a good, suitable amp which can play through both pairs of speakers (though not at the same time).

    I don't have a huge budget, so I'm looking at either a Marantz PM450 amplifier and ST520 tuner, or Sanyo JCX 2300 K stereo receiver amplifier.

    Opinions? Ideas? I think I will be buying one of them tomorrow so the sooner the better for any feedback you may have!!
