Tannoy Turnberry vs Fyne 502SP?
@tennisdoc56 that is good to hear. I've been considering pairing with a NAT HPS amp but had some concerns about whether it would be enough power to drive the fynes (or tannoys, frankly).   
Tannoy Turnberry vs Fyne 502SP?
I own the Fyne F704s and they are remarkable. I have heard great things about the 502SP from owners. Do try and listen for yourself. @grannyring Circling back to this post to see if there were any updates, I also noticed you are parting with yo... 
Tannoy Turnberry vs Fyne 502SP?
I purchased a pair of F- 702s before the last price increase, and I am very pleased with them, driving them with a Rogue Audio Stereo 100 Dark.  Superb imaging, sound stage, and tonal qualities.  Depending on the recording, the performers appear ... 
Tannoy Turnberry vs Fyne 502SP?
Are the Turnberry's priced per pair or per single speaker?  Depends on the dealer, but most that I've seen price per speaker but require them to be sold in pairs (which always confused me a bit).  I have had Turnberry speakers for 5 years and...

Amp pairing with Tannoy Turnberry?
@charles1dad  Yes, I do think that is what I am leaning toward at the moment. It's at the upper limit of my budget, but willing to stretch a bit for the right one. I'm just not sure that a solid state will give me what I am looking for, at this p... 
Amp pairing with Tannoy Turnberry?
One more note - at the very top end, I'm not looking to spend more than $8-9k for an integrated or preamp+monos. Will be difficult to stay within that budget for separates, which is why I've been looking at integrated options. Maybe sometime down ...

And thanks for all the recommendations and input so far!  
Amp pairing with Tannoy Turnberry?
Having said that, looks like audio gods are smiling upon you. Once you get your Tannoy’s, reach out to Mike Powell (NAT distributor) for in-home audition of HPS, he lives in ATL :-) As an alternative to tubes, consider Accuphase Integrated, some...
