SE needs speakers with high impedance with a flat trace and high sensitivity to work optimally. Although I wouldn't personally have them for firewood that's what Audionote speakers offer. Or even better and much cheaper a set of the old 'Kabuki' speakers from Sansui, Pioneer, Sony etc
Guys, don't get too hung up about me using these with Tannoys, I've six or seven other pairs of speakers to try. Interesting comments regarding on what's needed. I've only bought these as a bit of fun. I couldn't really give a Sh#t if things don't work out. They are purely for my amusement.

Yes I get that. I do that all the time. Well I used to anyway.
Klipsch would be another good option if you have any of them lying about.
I am 100% in agreement with Macca's choice, Klipsch would be a good match. There is a Klipsch dealer not too far from you in Hull, Fanthorpes, and if you have time, see if you can't get a dem, no ones forcing you to buy them. In the meantime I hope the Tannoys give a good account of themselves and you enjoy them. I have been hinting to my brother to try a pair of Tannoys or Klipsch, maybe when I get back to the uk I can twist his arm a little more and we can go for a demo.
Right guys these things are now sitting on my listening room floor, BUT, not valve fitting instructions. The 300b is easy enough, the valve complement includes Soviet Union 6H8C ×2, Soviet Union 5U4C ×2. Three bases exist on top of the amplifier. My problem is knowing where the 6h8c lives, is it the front valve base or the rear?? I can't find any instructions on the net. I suppose you could have told me so for buying ChiFi .
