Hi, I am in Canada too. I have seen one for sale for a long time and met the seller on another deal. I was trying to find out some information myself on it.

It was made in the 70s and was matched for the LS3/5a. Some of the posters on the LS3/5a yahoo group use it. I don't know any more than this. There doesn't appear to be a lot around.

What were you planning on using it with.

Well, i was only searching for a good amp. class AB

This Rogers amp. most be hard to repare. Parts are no longer disponible.

I like lesson to music with my old Ariston turntable, and speakers Kef 304 or B&W 330i.

I like the low bass. Unfortunately, Bristish system audio usually dont like to go in low bass. Celestion Ditton 66 is a exception.

Of course, i know that good low bass is hard to obtain.

A good subwoofer seem to be a good solution.

Serge, there are a lot of good AB amps around that I would choose before the Rogers. There are a lot of British integrateds from the 80s that work quite well with Kef and other speakers. I have a Naim integrated and a Musical Fidelity from that period and they sound great. Lots of bass, great imaging and detail. I had a Cambridge P35 that died and I haven't got around to getting it fixed. Sounded great, but reliability was a major issue with them. Rotel would be another possibility for you. Other names that come to mind, Creek, Cyrus, Sugden, the list goes on....

My 104abs have lots of bass as a lot of the kef speakers. I have not considered a sub would be necessary at all. I am sure the other posters would agree that the old kefs have a lot of bass. The B110 units in my Kans give remarkable bass for their size. I have heard the Celestions and really was not that impressed, by the bass or anything else. I am bracing myself for the flames.
